Yesterday, Microsoft released the biggest update since the existence of the Windows 11 operating system. As users discovered, along with the Windows 11 23H2 (or Moment 4) update, one useful feature disappeared from the OS.
We are talking about the possibility of “drag and drop”. As Mayank Parmar, owner of the WindowsLatest topic resource, humorously complains, new Microsoft developers clearly don’t like the drag-and-drop feature or don’t understand its importance.
When Windows 11 first came out, users couldn’t drag and drop items onto the taskbar like they were used to. The option was returned a year later in the Windows 11 22H2 update. Microsoft “celebrated” the option as a completely new feature, although it was familiar to many different versions of Windows. And it looks like history will repeat itself.
Windows 11 23H2 introduces Explorer with a redesigned design, recommendations, and a new address bar that’s deeply integrated with OneDrive cloud storage. Microsoft support explains:
Explorer’s newly designed address bar recognizes local and cloud folders. It also shows the status of the file. For Microsoft OneDrive users, the address bar now includes OneDrive sync status and a storage limits pop-up window.
This is all well and good, but with the new address bar you can no longer drag and drop files or apps. For example, if you have two folders on your computer and you want to move a file from one to the other. Previously, when dragging, the “Move to…” mark appeared, but now it is gone, and the entire function does not work. Here is one typical complaint:
Removing this feature from the address bar has disrupted my workflow many times lately.
A Microsoft representative said that the company is aware of these changes, but that no decision has been made in this regard. The company reported:
This [перетаскивание] is not currently supported by the updated address bar… we will continue to monitor feedback.
“Blackmail me with money? Go to hell. The whole world will know that these advertisers killed the company,” Elon Musk responded to the departure of advertisers from X/Twitter
Speaking at the DealBook 2023 summit in New York on Wednesday, Elon Musk, owner of the social network X (formerly Twitter), ridiculed advertisers leaving the platform because of anti-Semitic messages he spread there.
“What if someone tries to blackmail me with advertising? Blackmail me with money? Go to hell. Go. F—. Yourself,” Musk said, singling out Disney.
On November 20, Apple said it would stop advertising on Platform X, two days after Elon Musk tweeted his agreement with an anti-Semitic post. A number of other major technology and media companies, from IBM to Disney, made similar announcements on Friday.
Elon Musk also stated that his fans will boycott these advertisers in response: “The whole world will know that these advertisers killed the company, and we will document it in detail. I have no problem being hated.”
In recent weeks, Musk has endorsed what the White House called “anti-Semitic and racist hate” on X. He called the tweets “one of the dumbest, if not the dumbest, thing I’ve ever done on the platform.” “I regret these tweets,” he added.
This week he also visited Israel, where he met and spoke with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. When Netanyahu said he wanted to “deradicalize” and “rebuild” Gaza, Musk offered to help. Musk said his visit to Israel was planned before his tweets and was not part of an “apology tour.”
Musk has previously said he wants to bring SpaceX’s Starlink satellite communications service to the region and, in particular, to humanitarian organizations in the Gaza Strip.
Windows artificial intelligence will become much smarter. Copilot system will switch to GPT-4 Turbo
Microsoft’s Copilot assistant, integrated into Windows 11, will soon move to the GPT-4 Turbo language model.
General Director of Advertising and Web Services at Microsoft, Mikhail Parakhin, said that the company still needs to correct some shortcomings. However, no time frame for the transition has been announced yet.
As a reminder, GPT-4 Turbo features a large number of improvements relative to GPT-4, including a context window for 128,000 tokens. True, with Copilot it may well be limited.
In addition, this language model is trained on data up to April 2023, which gives it an advantage over older versions.
Samsung now has a browser for Windows. Samsung Internet is now available in the Microsoft Store
Samsung today unexpectedly launched its browser on PC. The Samsung Internet app is now available in the Microsoft Store.
In the case of Android, let us remind you that the application is called Samsung Internet Browser, but this, of course, does not change the essence. There is only one screenshot in the Windows store in which the Samsung browser is no different from Chrome.
Actually, this is not surprising, given that most third-party browsers for Windows rely on the Blink engine, which also underlies Chrome. But the developers of many well-known browsers are trying to make their applications unique, at least externally, but this is not yet the case. But Samsung Internet will allow owners of Galaxy smartphones to synchronize data on their PC with the browser on their mobile devices. True, so far this function works only partially, allowing you to synchronize your browsing history, bookmarks, saved pages and open tabs, but not passwords.
Let us remind you that today we learned that Samsung may abandon the Exynos brand.
