Microsoft is working on a new feature in Windows 11 that will remember whether you turned on Wi-Fi or Bluetooth while the computer was in Airplane mode.
With the current version of Windows 11, if you open the Quick Settings menu and click Airplane Mode, it will turn off all wireless connections like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular networks.
However, Microsoft is changing the functionality, so if you turn on Bluetooth while your computer is in Airplane Mode, Windows will automatically remember your preference and Bluetooth will already be on the next time you turn on Airplane Mode. This is promised to make it easier for you to stay connected to headphones when traveling.
Improvements for Windows 11 Notification Center
Microsoft is also working on new enhancements for the Windows 11 Action Center, adding a new feature where three high priority notifications can be stacked and displayed at the same time. The idea is that apps that have priority notifications like alarms, calls, and reminders can use this feature, which can currently be tested in the latest preview update.
This new improvement could reduce the clutter of the notification flow, as it will now host up to four notifications at the same time; one normal notification and three priority notifications.
Additionally, Microsoft is also working on more customization options for the Start menu and taskbar. The new options will allow users to view more apps and recommendations on the Start menu.
However, Microsoft has not provided a date for the official arrival of these updates, but we can see them being part of the next big update for Windows 11 – which could arrive around October or November 2022.
