Windows 11 Moment 3 is reportedly updated with new features, and in this post, we will be going through some of the amazing new features that is packed with the Windows 11 Moments 3 update.
Windows 11 Moment 3 New Features
The latest feature update for Windows 11 is now set to roll out and it is full of some really big changes. Termed “Moment 3”, the new release brings with it some long-awaited and requested features as well as quality-of-life improvements that make it an update that is worth installing immediately.
And seeing as Moment 2 was released very late in February, it is quite an excellent surprise to see just how quickly the next release has hit the shelves. These Moment updates as you should know are part of an approach to improving Windows 11 by Microsoft, instead of just dropping a huge update every year, the company has now shifted to putting out new features as part of more frequent cumulative updates. And so, without further ado, here is our pick of the best five features that are set to be coming our way with Moment 3.
Improvements to Notifications and Taskbar
Veterans of Windows will surely be happy to find a couple of improvements to the taskbar, just like a network icon that will simply indicate an active VPN connection with a small lock icon which can be very helpful if you are one of those people who at most times forget whether or not that they have got their VPN turned on. You should keep in mind, though, that the icon in question will only appear when you make use of ‘native’ VPN connections that are set up in the settings app and will not pop up in the event you are using third-party VPN applications. So that is quite a bit of a bummer.
Improved Widget Board
The updates to Windows Widgets in Moment 3 as you should know with this update are a little sparse, but one thing we do is get a redesigned widget picker so you can easily preview a widget just before pinning it to the board. This is one bonus for those users that are a little particular about just how their widget boards look like, so at least for now you can easily and properly plan out the layout of your board instead of just finding out after the widget is in place that it messes up your widget feng shui.
New Task Manager Feature
The new task manager will now support live kernel memory dump, which is one feature for gathering data to troubleshoot problems in the background all the while the operating system keeps running. This may however not mean a lot to the average user, but if on the other hand, you are a developer that needs to investigate unresponsive applications or get to weed out the source of other problems, this is a pretty useful addition.
Once the update has been installed, you can then create a live kernel memory dump simply by heading to the Task Manager and right-clicking on the System Process, where you will get to find the ‘create live kernel memory dump file’ option.
Better Settings Menu
There are quite a couple of changes and improvements to Windows Settings with the Moment 3 update, but we will be going directly into the more interesting ones for now.
Tab hoarders and multitaskers should be happy with this one; Snap Assist now has been bulked up just to help with your numerous open tabs! Normally you just can press Alt + Tab or trigger Snap Assist simply by dragging your window to the top of the screen, and then you can split the screen into a maximum of four tabs. But with the Moment 3 update, you can now head over to a new section of the Settings menu and then select between three, five, and 20 tabs. You have been heard, and now your many tabs are valid.
Of course, we really cannot talk about the Moment 3 update without getting to make mention of the snazzy new wallpapers! The iconic Windows 11, the swirly pattern which you know now comes in wonderful shades of pink, magenta, as well as purple, which quites stand out even more in the darker versions of the new wallpaper.
Hopefully, these new wallpapers in question pinpoint a fresh new era for Windows 11 that will be packed with a lot of positives. The cheerful wallpaper tones in question really are the cherry on top of a really solid, well-thought-out feature update.
