The new Windows 11 update improves the start menu

Microsoft continues to work on Windows 11, gradually developing its new operating system. According to user requests and comments, this new OS is taking shape and receiving new functions and features before its official arrival at the end of the year. Insider users targeted to the Dev channel (the most unstable of all) can already test the new operating system for a week. And now, build 22000.65 brings us a little more of this expected Windows 11, with functions that we really liked.

What’s new and changed in Windows 11 build 22000.65

Although it is unlikely that we will see many big changes within this new operating system, the truth is that Microsoft has taken advantage of the arrival of Build 22000.65 of its operating system to change some details within the operating system.

The first of them, and the most important, is that now the start menu has a search bar that allows us to easily find all kinds of programs and elements that we want. A feature highly requested by users, from how little we missed Windows 10, which has become a reality.

One step closer to Windows 11, should I install the new Build 22000.65?

All users who have installed Windows 11, either on the PC or in a virtual machine, will be able to download this new build of the operating system. However, we must bear in mind that it is still a development version, unstable, which, although it has corrected many errors, still has many others. Both known and unknown.

If we are already testing the new Microsoft operating system, we must update as soon as we have the opportunity, since it will work better than the previous build. And some of the news that we have seen is really appreciated. However, if we use the PC to work, and we need stability, it is better to let it go and wait a little longer.
