Windows 11 Support Thread

I used to be able to double click a zip file and then just drag it into the folder in the address bar. But no, not on Windows 11 anymore. Just one of the many annoying things. Yes, there is more than one way to do something, but why change something that used to work.

Another annoying thing is that the address bar doesn't work or display properly

One of the new AI features that will be available on these first Copilot+ PCs is named “Recall.” If you remember the now-deprecated Timeline feature on Windows 10, Recall will let users scroll back in time and find apps, documents, messages, and more that they previously used on the device. The feature is powered by different small language models, and Microsoft said it won’t be using user data to train these models.
 

Microsoft removes AC-3 Dolby Digital codec from Windows 11 24H2 - Neowin​

Microsoft has published a new support page with details about codec support in Windows 10 and 11. For those unfamiliar, codecs are software bits that make it possible to play different audio and video files on your computer.

By default, Microsoft's operating systems come with plenty of pre-built codecs, with more available in the Microsoft Store. However, the upcoming Windows 11 version 24H2 will introduce some changes.

According to the new support page, Windows 11 version 24H2 will remove the AC-3 codec, which is also known as "Dolby Digital" for multi-channel or "surround sound":

Beginning with Windows 11, version 24H2, the AC-3 codec is no longer included with Windows. However, many device manufacturers will pre-install an AC-3 codec. In these cases, you will still be able to play files encoded with the AC-3 audio codec.

There is no word on why Microsoft decided to remove AC-3 from Windows 11 24H2. Also, Microsoft does not say what will happen to AC-3 support when upgrading to version 24H2 from older releases or Windows 10.


However, users should not panic—many third-party apps, such as VLC, include AC-3 support.

Additionally, some codecs are available from Microsoft in the store. They include MPEG-2 (MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 video formats), HEVC (H.265), VP9, AV1, and Web Media Extension (OGG audio and video, Vorbis, and Theora). Keep in mind that some of them, such as HEVC, are not free.

You can learn more about codec support in Windows 10 and 11 on the official support page. Windows 11 version 24H2 is expected to ship later this year, and it is currently available for public testing in the Release Preview Channel.

Microsoft has released the May 2024 non-security preview update for Windows 11 versions 22H2 and 23H2, which includes 32 fixes and changes.

Among this cumulative update's highlights, Microsoft mentions fixing an issue causing the Windows File Explorer to freeze when swiping from the screen edge after turning off edge swiping and a second bug fix that causes it to start with a two-minute delay after pinning a folder on a network share to Quick Access.

This month's preview update also rolls out a new account manager on the Start menu, making it easier to manage account settings and a new sound settings backup feature when the user signs into a Microsoft account.

KB5037853 is a monthly optional update that allows Windows admins to test improvements and fixes, which will be pushed to all customers with next month's Patch Tuesday release.

To install it on your computer, click 'Download and install' after checking for updates from Settings > Windows Update.
