There’s more coming to Windows 11 at some point during this year, and three of them are of particular interest to the type of people who read OSNews. First, Windows is finally getting support for more archive file formats.
Microsoft has finally added native support for more archive formats, allowing you to open tar, 7-zip, rar, gz, and other files. In addition, Windows 11 users will benefit from improved compression performance when zipping files.
You’ll soon also be able to force quit applications straight from the taskbar, instead of having to open Task Manager, and as we noted not too long ago, ungrouped taskbar buttons are also making a comeback – among other things.
Content adaptive brightness control also sounds intriguing. I’d appreciate an hour more on my battery.
That’s nice, some actual good changes in Windows for once.
I’ll still probably go with 7z at work in any case. The interface for compressing and uncompressing using the MS interface in Explorer isn’t very good, especially in Windows 11. And that’s being kind.
Needs LHA! Granted, due to the Amiga’s file system capabilities, extracting some of the whdload stuff on a windows machine will cause filenames to be truncated…
