Microsoft has already updated its canonical Notepad and Paint apps for Windows 11, and now it’s the task manager’s turn. He, like many other applications in the new OS, received rounded corners, but this is far from the most important thing.
The main thing is a radically redesigned interface. The tabs specific to the Windows 11 Task Manager are gone. Now the main menu is on the left, and the rest of the area is given to the process manager. The Performance menu item looks a little different than in Windows 11. In the application settings, you can choose a dark theme, which is already available even for Notepad.
Unfortunately, the new task manager is currently only available in Windows 11 Insider Preview 22538, and it still needs to be activated using ViveTools. When it will appear in the user version of Windows 11 is still unclear. Perhaps it will be part of a major Windows 11 22H2 (Sun Valley 2) update, which is expected to be released in the summer.
The latest update of Windows 11 and Windows 10 caused crashes
A few days ago, Microsoft began rolling out the May Cumulative Update, which is now available for all supported versions of the Windows operating system.
It turned out that this update brings with it not only fixes, but also problems that are expressed in the disruption of the functioning of some services. The software giant has acknowledged the problem.
Reportedly, these are KB5013943 for Windows 11 (build 22000.675) and KB5013942 for Windows 10 (builds 19043.1706, 19042.1706 and 19041.1706). Installing the cumulative update may cause client and server OS authentication failures in a number of services, including Network Policy Server, Routing and Remote Access Service, Extensible Authentication Protocol, and Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol.
According to the source, the issue is related to how the domain controller handles mapping certificates to users’ computer accounts. The issue does not affect non-domain-controlled client and server OS versions.
Microsoft is currently working on a patch that will fix the bugs mentioned. When exactly it will become available to users is still unknown. Users who encounter issues after installing the cumulative update are advised to manually map certificates to accounts in Active Directory.
It is reported that the RTM version of Windows 11 22H2 (Sun Valley 2) will be released on May 24th.
Windows 11 22H2 (Sun Valley 2) RTM Released May 24th
Sources say that the Windows 11 22H2 update, codenamed Sun Valley 2, will soon reach pre-release status. The source writes that this will happen this month.
According to Neowin, well-known insider WalkingCat has revealed the exact release date for Windows 11 22H2 RTM. He claims that it will be released on May 24th. It is worth noting that the RTM (release to manufacturing) version, although it indicates a certain degree of product readiness, is not final. According to rumors, the final version of the update will be released between September and November.
Notably, May 24 is also the start date for the Microsoft Build 2022 conference, which will run for three days. During the conference, the Redmond giant will present its latest tools, technologies and updates for various software products.
