Among the latest releases 22621.891 and 22623.891 from Windows 11 Preview ReleaseAvailable as of yesterday for BETA participants Some interesting functional innovations. The change associated with the official announcement is quite evident in this, and among the improvements that have been made The main protagonist is definitely Task Manager.
The novelties related to it are different but the main thing is functionality Operation filter / search. The window allows you to filter the search for a process using the binary name, PID, or publisher name. This is a screen that makes you better understand what we are talking about.
The filter algorithm will then be able to process all possible matches on the current page, but it will also apply when switching from one page to another. In addition to being able to access the search filter box directly, users can also use the keyboard shortcut ALT + F. This is definitely a useful function when you want to locate a process or group of processes and take an action or just monitor the performance of something specific.
But this is not the only novelty of the task manager, it is also presented Better theme support. Specifically, the ability to Use your favorite theme in Task Manager Regardless of which theme is currently active for Windows. You can activate it directly in the settings page of the task manager, as well as select it. The theme customization will also extend to all task manager dialogs within the app, except for the Run New Task dialog and the properties dialog. Finally, a simpler way to turn efficiency mode on or off is introduced by selecting “Don’t ask me again” in the mode dialog. And then there are the other minor changes, ubiquitous in builds like this, which we report on in list form according to the official changelog:
