Windows 11 build 22000.71: new widget and context menu

Microsoft is now releasing Windows 11 build 22000.71 for testers. It includes less new features than the previous build 22000.65. There are four new features and many bug fixes.

The first change found in Windows 11 build 22000.71 is a new entertainment-related widget. It allows you to see new films, as well as those featured on the Microsoft Store. Clicking on the film will open the Microsoft Store on the feature film’s page to have the description, various information and of course the possibility of making the purchase.

Another novelty concerns the contextual menu, the one that appears when you right click with the mouse. It changes its appearance to adopt what Microsoft calls the “acrylic material”.

On the other hand, Windows 11 build 22000.71 is an opportunity to test the ergonomics of a SplitButton to create new folders and files in the File Explorer command bar. Finally, the previews in the task bar (when you hover over an icon with your mouse) evolve to adapt to the visual of Windows 11. Regarding bugs, you can find the (very) long list on this page.

If you already have the first version of Windows 11, then go to Windows Update and download build 22000.71. As a reminder, the final version of Windows 11 will arrive this fall (normally in October).
