Rumored Future Windows 11 Taskbar Update to Bring Back Drag and Drop

Microsoft just Might Bring Back a Very Popular Feature it Removed from the Windows 11 Taskbar (but not Anytime Soon)

Microsoft could be working to return a missing feature from the Windows 11 taskbar — the ability to drag and drop — though not until late 2022…

Microsoft continues to tweak Windows 11, including ironing out annoying bugs from the taskbar. Now, there’s some fresh scuttlebutt about the software giant resurrecting a tool it neglected to integrate into the system. Grapevine talk suggests the company is working on a major change to drag and drop functionality. However, it probably won’t roll out until the latter part of next year.

Rumored Future Windows 11 Taskbar Update will Bring Back Drag and Drop

The folks over at Windows Latest have recently pointed out that the major development in the works requested by many – the ability to drag and drop apps onto the taskbar, to swiftly and easily create shortcuts to the most commonly used programs – is still underway as previously rumored, with Microsoft testing the feature internally. If true, it would mean the return of a very handy option.

Right now, it’s experimental as inside sources from Microsoft reveal the capability will start to show up in preview builds over the next few months. But, the release versions won’t have it in Windows 11 until sometime in late 2022, when it will tentatively arrive in the 22H2 update.
