Windows 11 Sun Valley 2 Update with Drag & Drop for Taskbar Coming Summer


Last November, Microsoft was rumored to be bringing back dragging files and programs to the taskbar. It was not yet clear when this would start. Windows Latest claims that an update called Sun Valley 2 is coming that will bring this functionality, among other things.

Sun Valley was the codename for Windows 11. According to Windows Latest, the second major update (or the first major update to Windows 11) will come in the summer of 2022, and will therefore be appropriately named 22H2. The main addition has to be the drag and drop feature. You should be able to move files, folders and programs to the taskbar with it. This is possible on Windows 10, but Microsoft had previously decided to remove it from Windows 11. Also, according to Windows Latest, the taskbar itself will be movable again, just like you can put the taskbar on the side or at the top on Windows 10.

Also, Windows needs to better handle “snap groups,” which allow you to divide your windows in a more specific way. You could already choose from more options than just placing windows on the left or right or in a corner, but it is not clear exactly what the improvements will entail. The Windows Subsystem for Android would also be improved, as would certain parts of the Settings app and Control Panel.

The tech site also suggests that third-party widgets will be allowed through a new API. Currently only widgets from Microsoft itself are allowed, but earlier this year all the news went that this was in development.
