Microsoft announces the imminent arrival of a new feature that will allow you to perform a force close directly from the taskbar.
Microsoft continues to increase the functionality of its not-so-new Windows 11 operating system with the aim of attracting more and more users to its ranks. Yesterday it became known that the company will integrate native support for additional archive formats, including tar, 7-zip, rar, gz and many others.
Today it surprises again with the announcement that it will soon add a function similar to that of MacOS: add a force close option to the taskbar.
This is an idea that has been around the media since February. At that time, the possibility was introduced that in Windows 11 a new option was already beginning to appear in the test versions, offering the possibility of forcing an application to close by right-clicking on it on the taskbar.
Now the company —at its developer conference Build this week- has confirmed that it will add the feature soon.
Microsoft continues to focus on improving the taskbar in Windows 11
One of the big criticisms of Windows 11 has focused on the taskbar, which has been poorly implemented from the start and which many new users have considered to be a huge step backwards from Windows 10.
This was built from the ground up as a completely new experience, which is why it has left many features out, breaking with some features that users were used to.
Knowing this, Microsoft has been little by little including improvements and news that calm the chaos generated. For example, added support for drag and drop to be set to the Windows 11 taskbar or pin shortcuts to the taskbar, allow you to see the name of the programs you already have open on the taskbar, among other changes.
With this novelty now, it seems that the company continues to insist on focusing on this essential aspect of Windows and continues to include new features that encourage users to make the change.
