  • Microsoft is continuing to tweak and modify all software for the upcoming operating system. 
  • Internet rumors suggest that Dark Mode will slowly make its way to the Task Manager as well.
  • The announcement was made via Twitter, by StartIsBack, the company that brought us the classic Start menu for Windows 11.
  • However, not everyone that heard about this is excited, as some feel that this is just another weak attempt to take our eyes off what's really wrong with the OS.

Microsoft’s new operating system is right around the corner, rolling out on October 5th, so there is little time for developers to make any other remarkable tweaks.

However, there still is a small window in which they can add some small but significant changes to the work they’ve done so far.

New rumors point towards Redmond officials deciding to extend the reach of the Dark Mode feature to even more system software.

Task Manager is about to go dark as well

With Windows 11 almost on our doorstep, finishing touches are in order. So, after we received the revamped Calculator, Calendar, Snipping Toll, and Mail apps, Microsoft is exploring more design solutions.

Ever since this upcoming OS became available for testing, we could enjoy its Dark Mode feature. However, this important safety measure did not apply to every little corner of the operating system.

This is all about to change prior to the official release of Windows 11, as the tech giant is extending the reach of Dark Mode so that it engulfs the entire system.

If you remember, not very long ago, we were talking about how you can bring the Windows 7,8, or 10 Start menu style to the future Windows 11 OS.

The trick was to use some third-party software called StartIsBack, which would modify your system’s registry and restore the Start menu to its former self.

This company posted an interesting tweet yesterday, through which they said that Microsoft is actually hinting at the above-mentioned change.

A much-appreciated effort, seeing how a lot of users depend on this feature because it puts less of a strain on the eyes.

This being said, not everyone salutes this initiative. A lot of people feel like the Redmond company is just trying to sweeten the pot a bit, after failing so miserably with designing Windows 11.

That is pretty ridiculous. History has shown it. Most software companies have roadmaps, it isn’t a sign of intelligence. I can show you a screenshot of a button that doesn’t even have its label centered that I reported two months ago. As of right now, it’s going live.

Or the explorer bug that drops your FPS to .5 and you get to watch a slow-motion scene of your last attempts to use it play out on front of you—yeah it’s not that exciting to want to watch it in slow-no.

The great majority of Windows 11 users feel that this won’t have such a huge impact, as it is applied to software that we don’t use that often at all.

Instead, they were hoping for some more notable change, one that would be of more help than just Dark Mode for the Task Manager.

But don’t think that the version of Windows 11 we are getting starting with the 5th of October will be a final one.

Even though Redmond officials decided to start the rollout process for the OS, developers will still be performing behind-the-scenes tuning.

This is just the beginning and it will take a lot more work to bring the upcoming operating system up to user standard.

Also, remember that if you are experiencing any issues with your Start menu or taskbar, you are in the right place to find a solution to your problems.

SO let’s just kick back, relax, and wait for everything to be ready. In the meantime, if your device isn’t compatible with Windows 11, you can have a look at these hardware choices for running the new OS.
