 Microsoft Edge browser’s new Drop feature has been rolled out to Canary preview users, which helps users share files and notes across devices using the browser, similar to Telegram’s saved messages feature.

Today, the foreign media Windows Latest has a hands-on experience with the feature, which can transfer almost everything, including applications, text, notes, files, and other types of attachments.

According to tests, Microsoft is not developing a new cloud storage service for Edge, but using OneDrive. In order to access the feature, users must be signed in to a Microsoft account, and storage space depends on OneDrive space.

To use this feature, users need to click the paper airplane icon in the toolbar in the upper right corner of the browser, and then they can enter text in a chat window-like interface, or send a file.

After testing a text message, all other devices that have Edge installed and that support the feature were able to receive the message.

Additionally, Drop can share file content in most formats. For example, the foreign media uploaded an app called “MPV Player” (mpv.exe), and downloaded the player on another device, and the video can be played normally.

In one of the tabs in Edge Drop, we can see the OneDrive storage capacity data , which indicates that Drop transfers will count towards OneDrive storage.

The Deepnewssource understands that this function can also be hidden. If you don’t need it, you can turn off the Drop icon by customizing the toolbar icon in Settings -> Appearance in the upper right corner.

Windows 11 wants you to use widgets with the new expanded view

Published

Windows 11

Microsoft released the latest build of Windows 11, numbered 25201, on September 14. The new system preview includes an expanded view of widgets, the removal of the web search tool from the taskbar, Game Pass shortcuts, and new File Explorer features.

The main focus of this update is, without a doubt, the new view of widgets — what they call the Expanded View. Now, when clicking on the dedicated button, the widget panel will move out of the left side of the screen and become an independent window in the center of the screen, showing more content.

You can switch between the expanded and normal view by clicking the button positioned in the upper right corner of the panel — the one next to the “Add widgets” button. Still, Windows will remember the user’s preference, so if you close the panel in the expanded view, the next time you want to access it, it will open just the same. The feature, however, is in the testing phase. As such, it is only available to users who are part of the Windows Insider program.

Take a Look here:

Improvements to the Game Pass widget:

The Game Pass widget now allows the user to log into their account. When connected, the tile shows a list of suggested games or recently opened ones that serve as a shortcut to launch from there.

Because it is a trial version, some users have reported that the option to log in does not work as it should. According to them, the widget opens the Xbox app to connect the account instead of starting the game, even when the login is already done.

What Has Changed in File Explorer Search?

There is good news for anyone who uses the search function in File Explorer. The results will now be displayed as the user types the query, eliminating the need to press “Enter” to check them.

Another new feature is that, as of this build, Explorer will display more cloud-based files in its search results. However, not all users have access to the feature.

The new system also says goodbye to the different looks of the search tool on the taskbar. This could be due to negative user feedback, as Microsoft stated that it had finished testing the tool.
