Microsoft Rolls out new Windows 11 Build with Updated In-Box Apps
Microsoft has released a new build of Windows 11 and with this release, the company is pushing out updates for many of the in-box apps. Updated with this release are the Snipping Tool, Calculator, Mail, and Calendar.
There are actually two releases today, one for the beta channel and the other for the dev channel. If you are on the beta ring, you will now see the new Teams app and if you are on the dev channel, you will see the updated apps below.
The snipping tool now has a new visual design, updated settings pane, honors your Windows theme (light or dark), and has new editing tools as well.
Calculator now matches the theme of Windows 11 and also has been re-written in C#. If you would like to help build calculator, there is a repo on GitHub.
Say Goodbye to Traditional PC Lifecycle Management
Traditional IT tools, including Microsoft SCCM, Ghost Solution Suite, and KACE, often require considerable custom configurations by T3 technicians (an expensive and often elusive IT resource) to enable management of a hybrid onsite + remote workforce. In many cases, even with the best resources, organizations are finding that these on-premise tools simply cannot support remote endpoints consistently and reliably due to infrastructure limitations.
Mail and Calendar have also been slightly refreshed and now match the style of Windows 11.
You can download the update now if you are part of the Windows Insider program.
