Microsoft has released a fresh update for Windows 11 as part of the traditional monthly “update on Tuesday” (Patch Tuesday).

The update brings a number of improvements and bug fixes. This includes a problem with downloading and installing Windows updates. Other fixes include that every user will now be able to open the Start menu again, whereas some users may not have been able to before.

The update also includes innovations that became available as an optional cumulative update released in the second half of July. Among them is the ability to install new versions of Windows 11 during the first run. This means that if you buy a PC with the original version of Windows 11, but a newer version, such as Windows 11 version 22H2, is already available, you can install it before you start using your PC.

Since the KB5016629 update brings security improvements, this is a mandatory update that will install automatically on the PC, the user can only delay the installation for a week or two. Attempting to defer security updates multiple times may force a patch to be installed, depending on your Windows Update settings.

A strange gaming laptop without a discrete graphics card and not at all with Windows. Lenovo is preparing the release of the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook

A strange gaming laptop without a discrete graphics card and

Lenovo is preparing a gaming laptop of the IdeaPad Gaming line, which, firstly, does not work under Windows, and secondly, does not have a discrete graphics card.

A strange gaming laptop without a discrete graphics card and not at all with Windows.  Lenovo is preparing the release of the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook

The full name of the novelty is the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook, and here it is already clear that Chrome OS acts as the OS. But the operating system here is just one of the oddities of this gaming laptop. The second, as already mentioned, is the lack of a discrete graphics card. What’s more, it’s not just some Ryzen 7 6800U, whose iGPU is so powerful that such a laptop could hardly be called a gaming laptop. Instead, Intel processors serve as the heart here: Core i3-1215U or Core i5-1235U. Recall that their graphics cores are very modest in their capabilities, so you don’t even have to think about some modern demanding games. Moreover, the laptop also has a screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, which creates an additional load on the GPU.

As a result, it is completely unclear why the laptop is gaming, but here even the design is the same as in other Lenovo gaming models.

As for the rest of the parameters, the novelty is equipped with a 120-Hz IPS screen with a diagonal of 16 inches, a 512 GB SSD, 8 GB of RAM, a pair of USB-C ports, a pair of USB-A, microSD, Wi-Fi 6 and an aluminum cover.

Price data is not yet available.

The latest test build of Windows 11 has a feature that users have been asking for a long time. Now, when you right-click on the taskbar, you can open the “Task Manager” from the context menu.

By popular demand, a long-awaited feature has appeared on the Windows 11 taskbar

“Based on your feedback, we’ve added a link to Task Manager when you right-click on the taskbar,” Microsoft’s Amanda Langowski and Brandon LeBlanc said in a statement.

In addition, Insiders have received access to the function of rearranging icons in the notification area, however, not all participants in the Early Access program will be able to use this feature yet.

In addition, on the Dev channel, Microsoft has begun rolling out new customizations for widgets. It is now possible to show the widget board when hovering over an icon in the taskbar.

And on the Beta channel, they reintroduced a special version of the taskbar for devices with touch screens. This panel will only appear when you disable or fold the keyboard on 2-in-1 devices, that is, when you need to use only the screen.

It is not yet clear when these features will appear in the release.
