On Windows 11, Microsoft will finally retire the volume indicator from Windows 8.
Windows 11 may have been released at the end of 2021, but there is still a lot of work to refine the operating system. This is what Microsoft is preparing through builds available for testing for members of the Windows Insider program.
The latest comes to modify a few interface elements, including one that was long awaited.
Build 22533 is available in the Dev channel of the Insider program. Here are the changes made.
Microsoft announces that it has changed the volume and brightness change indicator. Until then, the system was still using the interface of Windows 8, which had never been reworked under Windows 10 to the chagrin of many observers. The old interface was poorly adapted to changes in resolution, remained on the screen for a very long time and above all was not adapted to the light/dark mode chosen by the user. The new indicators correct all these problems.

It is also now possible to uninstall the Clock system application, which was mandatory until now. Finally, the “application and features” shortcut accessible from the Win + X menu (or by right-clicking on the Windows logo in the taskbar) is renamed to “Installed applications”.
Microsoft also offers to test a new version of the Your Phone application, which allows you to control your smartphone from a PC. Here, the new version modifies the interface of phone calls for something more simple and modern.
