Windows 11 Widgets to Get New Feature: Pinnable Widgets
Pinnable widgets are the latest feature coming to Windows 11
Microsoft is reportedly making further strides in its efforts to integrate widgets into Windows 11, with plans to allow users to pin widgets directly onto their desktop. Renowned leaker Zac Bowden, known for his insights on Windows Central, has shared insider information from sources within Microsoft, indicating that this feature will aim to enhance widget engagement by keeping them in constant view on the desktop.
By bringing widgets out of the confinement of the widgets panel, which is currently accessed from the taskbar, Microsoft hopes to increase their utility and visibility for users. While the exact timeline for this development remains unclear, Bowden highlights that Windows 11’s widgets will receive dedicated attention at Microsoft’s upcoming Build 2023 conference in May. This suggests that the company may unveil details about this feature during the event, potentially signaling its imminent testing phase.
