Microsoft is improvising some of its built-in apps available in Windows 11. Users with valid licenses of windows (Windows Insiders) in the Dev Channel can now check new updates to the Calculator, Snipping Tool, Mail, and Calendar apps. However, most of the updates are minor, but they all are designed to match the new visual style in Windows 11.
Microsoft is putting back the classic Snipping Tool and Snip & Sketch apps in Windows 11 with the latest Snipping Tool app that blends the best features of both apps. For example, to take a screenshot in Windows 11, press the Win + Shift + S keyboard shortcut, and it will turn on the snipping menu with several options for choosing what content to screenshot.
After a screenshot has been taken, the Snipping Tool includes edit options for cropping, annotations, and more that can be easily used. Microsoft is also including a dark mode to the Snipping Tool so that it’ll match your Windows 11 theme.
Dave Grochocki of Windows inbox apps said that Microsoft will also update its Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 11 to complement the operating system’s new visual style. Microsoft has included rounded corners and other adjustments to make them look and feel like part of Windows 11.
There will be some slight updates in the calculator app in Windows 11 that will allow you to set a different theme to the one you’re using in the rest of Windows. Microsoft has also revised the calculator in C#, allowing developers to improve over on GitHub.
And not to forget, Windows 11 testers can now enjoy one-to-one and group audio/video calling in Microsoft Teams. You can now share your screen as well, just as you do in the regular Microsoft Teams app.
These are just a small list of apps that will be updated for Windows 11. More updates are coming on, so wait for the latest news from Microsoft.
