While Microsoft had started rolling out the Windows 11 2022 update, more popularly known as the Windows 11 22H2 update, all the new features the company was testing in the beta builds did not make it to the stable version. Microsoft did promise they will be available to general users pretty soon, and now some of the new features are showing up in the Release Preview Channel for Windows 11 Insiders.
The 22621.608 insider build of Windows 11 includes some of the new features including an enhanced file explorer with support for tabs, much like web browsers. There are also other new features like suggestions for actions when you copy items, a taskbar overflow menu, and the ability to share to more devices.

Windows 11 will soon feature an enhanced file explorer, in line with modern web browsers. The file explorer in the insider build includes tabs to help you organise your FIle Explorer sessions like you do in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge. You can now keep multiple instances of Explorer open in the same window, and cycle between them as needed, as opposed to minimising the current window to go to another which feels quite cumbersome.
Suggestions For Actions When Copying
Windows 11 will offer suggestions for actions when you copy something on Windows 11. This is a new feature not seen before, and gives suggestions to users when copying something like a phone number or future dates, Microsoft will provide options like make a call with Teams or Skype or add an event in the Calendar app.
Taskbar Overflow Menu
The taskbar will now offer an entry point to a menu that shows all your overflowed apps in one space.
Share To More Devices
The latest Windows 11 Insiders build lets you discover and share to more devices, including nearby desktops using its own version of Nearby Share.
