Do you often use Notepad on Windows 11? If so, you’re in for a treat.

Just like what they did by introducing the Bing AI chatbot to Windows 11 taskbar, the Redmond-based tech giant also brought a new feature to Notepad. From now on, you can open a new tab from the same window to write a new text without having to open a new Notepad window.

The new tabs in Notepad will work exactly like how they function in Files Explorer and web browsers, meaning you will not have to open multiple windows for multiple folders and directories.

Previously, rumors of this feature have been circulating around for months, at least since December 2022 almost a year after Microsoft fully redesigned the app for Insiders, so just imagine how happy some people actually are.

What other features are coming with Moment 2 update?

Other than the well-revamped Notepad, Microsoft came with a bunch of good news.

Many people were wondering why the search bar on the taskbar got bigger all of the sudden, so Microsoft slapped it with a nice Bing AI chatbot technology in it. From now on, once you’re enrolled in the waitlist, you can perform complex searches on the chat mode.

Plus, iPhone and Windows 11 users are in for a treat, too, as the latest update brings a nice addition to Phone Link companion app. From now on, you can connect your iPhone devices to your Windows 11 PC so you don’t miss any call, message, or notifications from your mobile.
