Windows 11 adds Start menu jump list and new features (KB5039319)

  • Windows 11 build 22635.3785 (KB5039319) pushes several interesting tweaks for the Start menu, Spotlight, and Share in the Beta Channel.
  • In the Start menu, the update adds a jump list, drag-and-drop support, and the most used ground section for All Apps. 
  • Microsoft also releases Windows 11 build 26120.961 in the Dev Channel with changes with the Recall integration.

As part of the Beta Channel improvements, Microsoft is now making available the Windows 11 build 22635.3785 as the update KB5039319 with various visual changes and fixes for version 23H2.

According to the official changes, the update KB5039319 introduces a new jump list of apps in the Start menu, but it’s been discovered that this release includes several other tweaks, including drag-and-drop support for apps from the Start menu to the Taskbar and a new group in the “All Apps” menu to list the most used apps.

In addition, the company is testing a couple of new behaviors for the Spotlight feature. The Share interface now lets you share directly with Android phones and more.

As part of the Start menu improvements, Windows 11 now adds a new jump list for apps in the menu. (In the past, the jump list was only available for apps pinned to the Taskbar.)

You can now drag-and-drop apps and pin them to the Taskbar.

In addition, in the “All Apps” menu, you will find a new group listing the most frequently used applications, and clicking a folder will now show items in a grid view.

Furthermore, you will now start to see app suggestions from the Microsoft Store under the “Recommended” section every time you open the Start menu.

When using the Share interface, you will find the option to share files and links to your Android phone. This feature requires you to connect your phone to your computer using the Phone Link app.

Finally, Microsoft is also testing a new behavior for the Spotlight feature on the desktop. Right-clicking the Spotlight desktop icon launches the experience, double-clicking the icon starts the feature in full-screen mode, and a single click opens the image information on Bing.

Windows 11 build 26120.961 (KB5038575)

Windows 11 build 26120.961 is rolling out in the Dev Channel as the update KB5038575 for version 24H2. This update only includes some changes and fixes to improve the overall experience of the operating system.

In addition, the update KB5038575 quietly removes the Windows Recall feature. However, this is likely something temporary, as the company has already announced that it’s postponing the release of the controversial Recall AI feature as it needs more time for testing and ensuring security.

Also, the company recently released the Windows 11 build 26236 in the Canary Channel, which introduces the new Start menu account manager, a new animation for the Sign-in screen, and changes to the Windows 11 Recall feature.
