Snipping Tool on Windows 11
The combo capture bar is the new protagonist. This feature eases the transition between screenshot captures and screen video recordings, eliminating the need to open the application. Users can use the key combination Win + Shift + S to start the snipping function or Win + Shift + R to start a video recording.
The recording experience has been improved as a result of user input. Now you can record PC audio and use a microphone for voiceover. With the new settings, users can customize the audio options and, if they have multiple recording devices, select their preferred device. It is important to know that some users may receive an unexpected dialog when taking a screenshot. If so, simply select “Snipping Tool” to fix the problem.
Notepad: autosave and other features on Windows 11
Notepad has also received a significant update. One of the most anticipated features is the automatic saving of the session state. This allows users to close Notepad without losing data and pick up exactly where they left off. Notepad now automatically restores previously open tabs and unsaved content. This feature does not affect users’ files, giving them the freedom to decide whether to save or discard unsaved changes. If desired, you can deactivate this function in the app settings. These updates are being rolled out. Therefore, they may not be immediately available to all users in the Canary and Dev channels. The complete distribution will take place after careful evaluation of the feedback received.
As we look to the future of Windows 11, it’s clear that we are at the beginning of a new era of innovation and refinement. Recent updates are just the tip of the iceberg of what Microsoft has in store for its users. The attention to customization, intuitive interface, and advanced features suggest a deep commitment to an unprecedented user experience. Additionally, Microsoft’s openness to user feedback and the rapid implementation of improvements based on that feedback indicate a dynamic, user-centered development model. Future Windows 11 scenarios could see more integration between devices, further evolution of the app ecosystem, and even more robust security. In conclusion, Windows 11 is presenting itself as a platform that is always evolving and prepared to meet the demands of the digital world.
