Here’s a glimpse at the Windows 11 Moment 2 update from Microsoft

October 26, 2022

Straight from the proverbial horse’s mouth. The Moment 1 update launched just over a week ago, unlocking new features for the Windows 11 operating system that also got its first annual update.

You know, new options like the tabbed File Explorer, Taskbar overflow, and a whole lot more.

Attention, then, has now shifted over to the Moment 2 release that is tracking for arrival sometimes early next year. And just like the first such release, this second one is expected to be packed with a bunch of new additions.

What they are exactly remains a mystery for now, as these features are not fully confirmed yet.

Tablet Optimized Taskbar

But as luck would have it, Microsoft showcased one such addition in a video that demonstrates what appears to be a new feature that is part of the Windows 11 22H2 Moment 2 update.

This is from the preview build number 23003 in case you are wondering. And this is a build that Microsoft seems be using and testing internally. And one that the company was confident enough to show off during a special live stream.

This video was streamed earlier today on the 8th Anniversary webcast on the Windows Insider Program official YouTube channel.

The prerecorded demo video is of the touch-optimized tablet taskbar, with Microsoft explaining how the taskbar goes from its normal state that is 48 pixels tall to a state that is even taller for user interface that are meant for touch usage.

You can catch it in action at the 33:55 mark.

Of course, keener minds among you may be already be aware that this is the second time that references to the Moment 2 update have surfaced.

The previous instance was back in early September where an internal build numbered 22940 was the one where things first popped up. Shows that Redmond has churned through quite a few development builds in this time span.
