The market share of Windows 10 dropped below the 70% mark for the first time, according to the updated Statcounter report for November. Over the past month, the share of Windows 10 has decreased by 1.49%. It was logical to think that the share of Windows 11 would also increase by the same amount, but this is not so.

The share of Windows 11 in November really increased, but only by 0.67% – up to 16.12%. Where did the rest go? Incremental Windows 7! The well-deserved Microsoft OS keeps the fighting spirit and does not give up: in November, its share increased by 0.62% – up to 10.24%.

The shares of Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 are 2.54% and 0.79%, respectively. As for Windows XP, which ended support 8 years ago, it now has 0.4% of the market.

Microsoft will release a major functional update of the Windows 11 operating system in 2023. Despite the fact that it is far from the release, detailed information has appeared on the network about what Microsoft is preparing for us.

The information was shared by the thematic resource WindowsLatest. It is noted that the details were found in Microsoft’s notes for OS test builds.

First, Microsoft will make volume control much easier in Windows 11. The app-specific volume tool in Windows 11 can only be accessed through Settings.

Luckily, Microsoft is testing a more modern tool for this. It can be accessed directly through the taskbar, similar to the volume control solution in Windows 10. Users will be able to quickly decrease or increase the volume of any open applications. For example, by making music apps like Spotify louder. While the innovation is hidden in the code and users cannot test it.

Another new feature is an option called AllowExperimentalFeatures on the Windows Insider Program settings page. This option will finally allow Windows Insider testers to activate features disabled by the company but hidden in the OS code.

And finally, the biggest update of the “Explorer”, which has already begun to circulate rumors. The new File Explorer should get deep integration with Microsoft 365, a new look, a new “recommended files” tab, display of conversations in emails, and more.

The feature first appeared in an early test build of Chrome Canary version 98. Over the course of a few months, the utility acquired new functionality, and it seemed that it was destined to appear in a stable version for all users soon.

Unfortunately, recent changes to Chromium indicate that the project to create a screenshot editor is closed – at least in its current form.

According to the documentation in the Chromium Gerrit code repository, the developers have removed all traces of the screenshot editing tool from the browser. Google employee Ellie Fong-Jones explained that the feedback during testing showed all the “rawness” of the tool, emphasizing that developers do not see ways to implement it without serious rework.
