Rejoice! Task Manager is finally getting a search bar in a future Windows 11 update

After years of trying to find the app that was slowing down your PC in a long list, Task Manager is getting a search bar in an upcoming Windows 11 update, so you quickly can type in the app in question and close it.

According to Windows Latest, this is currently a hidden feature in the Insider builds, which allows you to test features that may or may not appear in a future update for everyone.

However, a search bar in Task Manager is something many have been requesting for a long time, so we don't expect this to disappear anytime soon.

This is only further proof of how Microsoft is looking at the smaller details in its existing apps to reduce the frustrations many of us have had across Windows in the last few decades.

Task Manager is getting better with every update

Task Manager is mostly the 'cure all' of Windows issues, where you can go in by pressing CTRL + ALT + DELETE, or by right-clicking the Taskbar, and you can monitor your system's resource use or force-stop an app that's become unresponsive.

It's only in the 2022 update, released in September 2022, that Task Manager saw a glow-up in its design to match the overall look of Windows 11, alongside some new features, and it was a welcome change after what felt like abandonment by Microsoft for so long.

While a search bar sounds like a standard feature to have in a time of being able to ask voice assistants about the weather or to command a Wikipedia search, Task Manager did feel like the odd one out for this.

Once this future update arrives, however, you'll probably wonder how you managed without it, and what else Task Manager could be getting in other updates down the line.

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu

Google Announces Support for Account Passkeys

Google today announced that it is introducing support for passkeys, providing an easier and more secure login method for Google accounts. Apple integrated passkeys into iOS with the launch of iOS 16 , and it is also available in iPadOS 16.1 and later as well as macOS Ventura . Passkeys are an industry standard developed by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium, so Google's passkey integration will work on Apple devices as well as on other devices that support the feature. As Google notes: Last year — alongside FIDO Alliance, Apple and Microsoft — we announced we would begin work to support passkeys on our platform as an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. And today, ahead of World Password Day, we've begun rolling out support for passkeys across Google Accounts on all major platforms. They'll be an additional option that people can use to sign in, alongside passwords, 2-Step Verification (2SV), etc. Passkeys are both easier to use and more
