The long-awaited tabs appeared in Explorer, and the developers slightly modified the navigation bar and other interface elements. The ability to drag shortcuts and files to the taskbar has also returned, which was in Windows 10. This feature appeared in the release of Windows 11 only a year after its launch.

The Task Manager has a dark theme, updated design and some new features. Among these, we note the “Efficiency Mode”. This option allows you to limit the “appetites” of any application.

Also added changes for gamers. Games can now be launched using the Xbox controller. When connected to a PC, the Controller Bar opens, where you can select a game or option. Another innovation was the optimization of the game in the “windowed” mode. In particular, there have improved the work of the Auto HDR and VRR functions.

Support for Windows Spotlight appeared on the desktop. This function is responsible for downloading wallpapers from the Microsoft website and changing them. Finally, the old icons and some settings have been updated in the new OS.

At the same time, the media reports that there may be problems with the update that make it impossible to install. These include the inability to install update KB5012170, as well as the compatibility issue between Intel Smart Sound Technology drivers and Windows 11. They appear on systems with Intel 11th generation processors. At the same time, the company already knows about the problems and solves them.

According to GSM Arena, citing CNBC, the purchase of Twitter by billionaire founders of Tesla and Space, Elon Musk, may take place as early as this Friday.

GSM Arena clarifies that SEC filings confirmed the following fact: the deal should take place at the price agreed on April 25, which was approved by shareholders in September.

Before that, Musk wanted to stop buying Twitter, saying that there are a lot of bots and fake accounts on the social network. A court hearing in the case between Musk and Twitter is scheduled for October 17, but it may be canceled if the parties themselves resolve the conflict.

Later, on his Twitter page, billionaire Elon Musk said that the purchase of Twitter is “an accelerator for creating X, an application for everything.” The service may be very similar to the Chinese super app WeChat, which the billionaire openly admired and grew from a messaging service into a mini-internet with a billion user base.

The Linux kernel 6.0 was recently released and version 6.1 is scheduled to be released soon. However, many users have not switched to it yet.

The failure only affected laptops with Intel processors that were running a distribution based on the Linux 5.19.12 kernel. The problem seemed to be related to the Intel graphics driver, which caused the display to flash rapidly in white. One of the engineers who is involved in the development of the core of the system explained that it was an incorrect delay in powering up the LCD panel. Because of this, the display could fail, because it is simply not designed to work in this mode for a long time.

It is noted that the problem manifested itself on laptops, where the screens were directly connected to the integrated video core. It was also relevant for models with Nvidia Optimus and some models with Radeon graphics (if available).

It is noted that laptops with AMD processors, conventional and hybrid, are not affected by this problem. Also, the developers advised not to install the “problem” update for those who have not had time to update.

And earlier it became known about a new problem with Windows 11 22H2.
