The Notepad update brings a new design that matches the style of Windows 11 with rounded corners, mica material, and dark mode support.

The new version of the Media Player app will introduce a new design rounded corners, mica material, and support for the dark and light color system modes. The app is very basic with audio and video playback support, and it will replace the Groove Music app. You can also create playlists, and there’s support for album art and artist information. In addition, the app will automatically scan and add all your folders containing music and videos stored locally on your computer. In addition, the update will bring some visual changes to the Taskbar, including a new microphone icon in the system tray to mute and unmute calls, a clock in secondary monitors, and a new sharing option to share windows in video calls. Also, the February update will include an updated Widgets icon with weather information on the left side of the Taskbar when the rest of the icons are centered. However, the update won’t address some of the complaints from users, including drag and drop, and the ability to resize or change the position of the Taskbar. If this new feature update coincides with the February Patch Tuesday release, the rollout will also include an updated version of the Settings app with the new “Your Microsoft Account” page in the Accounts settings category to view your Microsoft account information. In addition, the page will offer details about your Microsoft 365 subscription, order history, payment details, and Microsoft Rewards. Furthermore, the update will also add a new feature known as “Help with” that uses Bing to suggest help topics in the Settings app and improvements to the auto-brightness control in low light conditions. Although Windows 11 will be getting new features and visual changes, this won’t be a new feature update like those the system receives every year. Instead, the new features will be part of a small update that won’t require reinstallation, and it will apply as a cumulative update. Also, apps like Notepad, Media Player, and the Windows Subsystem for Android will available through the Microsoft Store.
