Windows 11 build 22523, according to the official notes, brings Snap groups to the Task View (Alt + Tab) experience to all users. This was previously only available for a subset of testers. As part of the File Explorer changes, on This PC, the add media server and (if appropriate) remove media server option is now available when you click the See more (three-dotted) menu in the command bar.
