Microsoft has been running an experiment that places a search field on the leftmost position of the Windows 11 taskbar. In the latest redesign, the company positioned the taskbar in the center of the page.
The search widget test puts it on the taskbar of the operating system. Windows 11 displays a search icon by default next to the start menu, but the new test removes the icon from its default location and places it, as a search field, on the leftmost position on the taskbar.
The weather widget icon is placed to its right side in the build, according to ghacks.net.
The available taskbar options work with the new search field as well. Users can disable Search under Taskbar Items to hide the element on the taskbar, and may still run searches when they open the Start interface on the taskbar.
