Windows 11 ending tasks without Task Manager, Steps

Microsoft is reportedly working on adding a new end task option to the Windows 11 taskbar, which will allow users the ability to force close an application when they right-click on it in the taskbar.

According to Windows Latest, this new option has started appearing in the latest Windows 11 test builds.

Windows 11 currently allows users to kill any process using the Task Manager, Command Prompt, PowerShell, and Settings as long as they can identify the name or Process Identifier (PID).

Additionally, the report mentions that Task Manager also comes with a new search bar, which makes it easier to identify background processes.

The new Windows 11 test build also comes with major updates to accessibility features.

This update enhances the Live Caption feature by adding support for several new languages, including Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish, and others.

Additionally, the tech giant is also experimenting with different designs for the Snap layout, including new ways to improve the look and feel of the Snap layout.

Meanwhile, Microsoft will reportedly bring a new feature to Windows 11, which will allow users to control RGB lighting.

Twitter user Albacore has discovered that the latest internal build of Windows 11 includes a hidden feature to control RGB components.
