Windows 11 Update: Little Things That Make a Big Difference

    March 20, 2024

    Microsoft’s latest Windows 11 update has dropped, and it’s got a small change that could make a big difference to you and your team.

    Microsoft’s latest Windows 11 update might seem insignificant at first glance, but it introduces a handy tweak. Microsoft has given Copilot, the built-in AI assistant, a new place on the taskbar. It now resides conveniently on the far right of your taskbar, within what we tech folks call the ‘system tray area’.

    If Copilot isn’t your thing, no worries. If you prefer your workflow untouched, Copilot can be easily removed from the taskbar. But an AI assistant offers a wealth of productivity benefits. It can help with tasks like scheduling meetings, composing emails, and finding information – essentially functioning as your digital sidekick. 

    Before you rush to check if your Copilot button has relocated, let’s talk details.

    This update (patch KB5034765 – yes, not the catchiest name) goes beyond a simple button relocation. It packs a punch with crucial security fixes and bug squashes, addressing issues like Explorer.exe crashes when restarting with a connected game controller (perhaps not the most common business scenario, but better safe than sorry!). Additionally, it tackles a slowdown problem with Narrator, the screen reader tool.

    While individual updates may seem minor, they accumulate to create a smoother, more efficient user experience. Less time spent troubleshooting technical glitches translates to increased focus and productivity for your team.
