Microsoft plans to release the next big Windows 11 update version 22H2 soon. There is no exact release date yet, but it is assumed that the new OS will be released in a few weeks. The new build of the system will receive a number of innovations that should improve the work with the OS, as well as fix bugs.

Improvements will affect, in particular, the Start menu, where, finally, it will be possible to add folders with applications. Users will also receive support for new gestures for touch screens, and new animations on the taskbar are promised. Also, the new version of Windows 11 will support the Live Captions feature, with which subtitles for audio recordings will be created automatically. Beyond that, a PC voice control feature is also expected, though it’s not clear how well it will work.

Another innovation will be a dark theme for the “Task Manager”. There will also be a better layout of elements, including a new command bar and an efficiency mode that will reduce the consumption of system resources by applications.

Finally, File Explorer will get the long-awaited tab feature that browsers have had for a long time. But there is still no dual-pane mode.

Earlier it was reported that Microsoft is testing new animations for the taskbar in Windows 11.

New issue with Windows 11 22H2: Downloading and copying files can now slow down by up to 40%

New issue with Windows 11 22H2 Downloading and copying files

Another problem has been found in the Windows 11 22H2 operating system. This time it affects the speed of file copying. The chief program manager of the company, Ned Pyle, spoke about it. As it turned out, when copying large files from a remote PC or server to a Windows 11 computer, the speed drops dramatically in the process.

New issue with Windows 11 22H2: Downloading and copying files can now slow down by up to 40%

When copying files of several gigabytes, the speed indicator dropped by 40%, and it was on the Windows 11 22H2 system. According to Pyle, this may be related to the operation of the SMB network protocol, this is by far the most likely scenario. However, the same was noted even when copying local files on the computer itself.

The company continues to look for the cause of the problem, at the moment it is unknown. Users are advised to use the robocopy or xcopy utilities with the /J option to copy files. In this case, everything works as it should. An example code looks like this:

robocopy someserversomeshare c:somefolder somefile.ned /J

Also, according to media reports, you can use other copying utilities such as TeraCopy, FastCopy or CopyMaestro.

This is not the first problem with Windows 11 22H2. Printer failures have been previously reported.

Elon Musk wants to create X an application for

On his Twitter page, billionaire Elon Musk said on Tuesday that the Twitter purchase is “an accelerator for building X, the app for everything.”

Prior to that, he sent a letter to Twitter in which he announced his intention to acquire the microblogging network for an initial cost of $44 billion. This is $54.2 per share.

As for “app X”, according to Bloomberg, this service could be very similar to China’s WeChat super app. The billionaire previously openly admired the app, which grew from a messaging service into a mini internet with a billion user base.

He has speculated about making Twitter more useful, pointing out that he wants it to be more like WeChat and TikTok, the video-sharing service that has become popular in the US and around the world. And he drew parallels with the so-called super apps that are common in parts of Asia, allowing people to use a single smartphone app for a range of services, from communication to calling a car.

While Musk did not reveal his final plans for Twitter, he did say the service could charge business users and government officials.
