Microsoft may repair Windows 11's worst feature.

Microsoft has put a search bar on the desktop of certain Windows 11 insiders as part of an experiment to remove widgets from the Taskbar.

This is in Windows 11 Build 25120, accessible in the Insider Dev Channel. Microsoft says this won't affect all programme participants, although restarting may help.

This is the first time you may utilise a widget on the desktop instead of via the Taskbar.

Windows Vista brought us here previously. Microsoft calls this an experiment, but it might be the beginning of addressing widgets, a sore spot for Windows users since 2006.

Microsoft has never mastered widgets. Before Windows Vista, third-party software placed news readers, media controls, weather alerts, and more on Windows XP desktops.

In Vista, they were called Gadgets and drained your CPU, so many people turned them off.
