The “Controller bar” is an updated view of the Xbox Game Bar that gives you quick access to recently played games and game launchers. The new experience works when connecting an Xbox Wireless Controller or compatible controller and pressing the Xbox button. The “optimizations for windowed games” feature affects presentation modes for windowed and borderless windowed DirectX 10 and 11 games. “Presentation” defines the process of rendering the game on frames in the most optimal way, allowing you to have a more consistent experience whether you play a game in full-screen or windowed mode. The gaming feature upgrades the legacy presentation model in games to a modern one to improve latency and unlock other features, such as Auto HDR and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR). You can use these instructions to enable the feature after the upgrade to version 22H2.

The “Windows HDR Calibration” app is available for Windows 11 22H2 and 21H2, and it includes tools that allow you to tweak the display settings to improve color accuracy and consistency when viewing content on HDR monitors. In addition to these new features, the company is also bringing Auto HDR to more titles, and DirectStorage is now supported in more configurations, including RAID 0.
