Microsoft is currently experimenting with a new audio control feature Windows 11 Allows the user to control the volume of multiple applications from the quick settings.
As we all know, Volume Mixer is currently available for Preview 25281 (opens in a new tab) Dev channel from the Windows 11 Insider Program.It works with Discord and ear horn Due to the similar function of adjusting the volume level for different audio sources. For example, you can turn up the volume on a Skype call while turning down the music playing on Spotify, and have WhatsApp in between to receive notifications. This is a management level not currently seen, as Windows 11 currently only offers universal tweaks. Users typically use third-party applications such as EarTrumpet to gain this level of control.
Most interestingly, though, Microsoft made no mention of Volume Mixer in the Preview Build announcement. It was only discovered after a user dug through the build files and found a hidden function. Hopefully this tool becomes a reality, as it would be great to be able to adjust the volume of each app individually. Windows 11 needs better audio tools.
We say “hopefully” because this is an experimental feature and there’s no guarantee it’ll ever be released.as in a Windows Insider Program posts Starting in 2022, some “concepts will never be released…” It’s possible that Microsoft will bring Volume Mixer back to the drawing board for improvements, but at this point, who knows?
New features and redesign
As for what’s actually revealed in the preview build 25281, Windows Spotlight is getting a minor redesign. The interface will display more details about the image, such as the subject name and a short description. The developers are also experimenting with different ways to switch images; for example whether it should be a “full screen experience”. Adjusting graphics settings will be easier, according to Microsoft. Certain configurations, such as GPU preferences, will now appear front and center in the Graphics section of the Settings menu.
also, Notepad application now supports multiple tabs So users can manage multiple files in one window.Similar to browsers, you can drag one of the tabs (opens in a new tab) becomes its own instance. And there’s a new Notepad setting that lets users decide “whether files open in a new tab or a new window by default.”
Other new Notepad features include additional keyboard shortcuts and the app’s ability to automatically create file/tab names based on existing content. The Notepad update appears to be separate from Preview Build 25281, so you’ll have to download both.
Microsoft is working hard to pave the way for Windows 11 to eventually become the company’s only and only supported operating system.except for the sunset Windows 7 and 8.1the company recently announced that it will no longer sell Windows 10 Home or Pro licenses on its website Starting on January 31st.
