Windows 11 Is Set To Fix Its RGB Lighting Issues

Windows 11 is set to fix its RGB lighting issues. The platform is set to introduce Dynamic Lightning to the platform and it will allow users to adjust their RGB lightning across all of their devices as well as components from just a single hub in the settings menu.

Windows 11 RGB Lighting Issues

Microsoft is at the moment adding a much-needed feature to Windows 11 which is the ability to customize your RGB lighting via the Settings menu. The goal here is to create a hub where you can easily adjust the lighting of all your accessories and components, no matter the type of brand.

Microsoft has dubbed the hub Dynamic Lighting, but however, details on how the feature will actually work still remain unclear. We got a potential glimpse at what it might get to look like in a set of images that was leaked in the early parts of this year, which show a new “Lighting” option within the Settings menu that allows users to set the lighting effects for all linked devices.

A central RGB controller could easily help to solve the hugely fractured RGB lighting landscape that at the moment has users downloading the proprietary software that is associated with each of their devices and components. Personally, I currently control my RGB lighting setup via three different apps, and they are Razer Synapse, Corsair iCue, and MSI’s Dragon Center.

All of these apps in question suck up a lot of resources on my PC and not to mention that it is really annoying to keep switching between the three apps, especially when I’m in the process of trying to create matching lighting effects. And while there are some third-party RGB controller software such as OpenRGB that aim to consolidate the RGB settings across all of your devices, it would however still be very nice to have this all condensed and pressed into the Settings menu on Windows.

What Microsoft Has To Say about the New Update

“With Dynamic Lighting, Windows users will be able to effortlessly set up and customize their devices with RGB lights directly from Windows Settings,” Panos Panay, Microsoft’s chief product officer in a blog post writes. “It has never been easier to help all your RGB accessories seamlessly work together for Windows apps.”

Microsoft has stated that it is rolling out the lighting hub to Windows Insider this very month, and there is still no word on when it will become accessible and available to everyone.

Windows 11 Will Soon Have Native RAR Support

This means that with a new Windows 11 update, Tar, 7-zip, rar, gz, and many more will all be supported. Microsoft just announced that Windows 11 will natively support RAR as well as a bunch of other archive formats that users of Windows 11 have been waiting for decades.

“We have added native support for additional archive formats, including tar, 7-zip, rar, gz, and many others using the libarchive open-source project,” Windows chief Panos Panay in a blog post today stated. “You now can get improved performance of archive functionality during compression on Windows.”
