Windows 11 launched last year, but it’s still riddled with bugs and glitches. Microsoft keeps adding new features and design changes. For example, developers recently redesigned the “Open” dialog box from the times of Windows 8, and now they are planning to remake the shutdown window, we are talking about the very window that appears by pressing Alt + F4.

As part of the new design, it is planned to remove the Windows logo and PC icon, as well as to simplify the overall appearance of the window. This variant was introduced in Windows 11 Build 25174. In the future, buttons and drop-down menus are expected to be redesigned to better match the modern design language of the new OS.

Microsoft spoke about the song that “killed” laptops – back in the days of Windows XP

Microsoft spoke about the song that killed laptops back

A Microsoft representative told the company’s blog a story that happened back in the days of the Windows XP operating system. An unnamed major manufacturer has discovered that some laptop models crash when playing Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation” music video. The same was observed with laptops from other companies.

Microsoft spoke about the song that

Moreover, the failure occurred not only on the laptop itself, where the song was played, but, sometimes, on neighboring devices in the laboratory. At the same time, the track did not start on them at the time of the failure.

As it turned out, the fault was the music, or rather some audio frequencies in the audio track. They resonated with laptop hard drives that ran at 5400 rpm.

Chen did not specify exactly which frequencies created such interference and which models were affected. But he told how the experts found a solution. The manufacturer added a filter that removed such frequencies if they were found in the audio recording.

And in the comments to the post, one of the users said that the first 9-inch netbooks of one brand faced a similar problem. In the model that was equipped with a hard drive, almost any loud music would resonate with the drive and could lead to data corruption or even drive failure. But here the problem was in the design of the case – the right speaker was located almost close to the disk.

At the same time, the manufacturer did not acknowledge the existence of a problem, but users found a solution – move the balance slider in the player all the way to the left so that the right speaker simply does not produce sound.

Pixel Tablet may get 64 bit Android OS

In 2023, Google plans to bring the Pixel Tablet to the market, but the announcement is expected in the current. And yet, judging by some reports, the new tablet will come with 64-bit software. This means that it will not be able to run 32-bit applications.

Pixel Tablet may get 64 bit Android OS

This is indicated by a find made by Esper senior editor Mishaal Rahman. He revealed that Google is testing a 64-bit build of Android 13 on a device codenamed Tangor, which is believed to be the Pixel Tablet.

Since mid-2019, Google has required developers to include 64-bit support for software packages that are published to the Play Store. Thus, the company is smoothly preparing the ground for the transition to a 64-bit OS. It is noted that the latest or regularly supported applications and games in the Play Store should work on such a system without problems. Questions may arise only if you run old or not adapted programs.

As for the reasons for moving to 64-bit, the end of support for 32-bit applications will reduce the size of the codebase, speed up work, and may reduce the memory consumption of applications.

At the same time, there are still smartphones and tablets with 32-bit processors on the market. It is not yet clear whether the company will wait for their natural obsolescence or not.

Earlier, Mishaal Rahman said that Xiaomi proposed blocking the ability to install APK files from third-party sources.

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.
