Windows 11 Release Preview Channel gets Search Highlights

 

What's new and improved in Windows 11 KB5014668 update?

Search Highlights

Search highlights is a new feature in Windows 11. If you are a Windows Insider in the Dev Channel, you might have already experienced it. Some people liked it, whereas some didn't. But that is definitely a good enhancement, for me at least. Now the company is rolling out this feature to the Release Preview Channel insiders too.

 

This feature will add present notable and interesting moments of what’s special about each day to the search dialog. It includes information like holidays, anniversaries, and other educational moments in time both globally and in your region.

 

If you are an enterprise customer, search highlights will also feature the latest updates from your organization and suggest people, files, and more.

 

 

To see the search highlights, click or tap on the search icon on your taskbar. Alternatively, you can also open the Start screen (WIN) and start typing to invoke the search.
