Windows 11 will seek to optimize its performance on low-power computers
Although Windows 11 has been on the market for a short time, it has not received very good reviews and opinions from its users, especially for its functions.
Specifically, a series of functions that were never missing in previous versions have been removed from the operating system.
However, Microsoft continues to seek to add new functions and possibilities within the operating system that improve the user experience. Indeed, if version 11 already surpasses the previous ones in performance, now they have included another function that optimizes their work.
What does Windows 11 bring new for users?
One of the most constant complaints within the Microsoft community regarding the use of Windows 11 is about the file explorer.
They reported that loading times exceeded normal beyond the fact of having low-power computers. In addition to this, there was also the problem of the screen hanging due to the waiting duration.
File indexing optimization
It is an improvement that is directly focused on those computers whose space on the hard disk is minimal. That is, having a device that executes activities slowly and inefficiently.
Starting with this feature, already implemented within Windows 11 Build 22526, users will receive file indexing optimization.
Basically, it consists of the task of locating any type of file more quickly through the browser of the operating system itself.
The problem comes when users have several hard drives on their computer and constantly have to search for files between each one.
This is where the performance problem becomes present, which is reflected in the load times that result in hanging screens.
Now, thanks to the new feature, loading times are expected to be much more efficient and allow the user to find what they are looking for.
When will it be available?
The improvement in the file indexing system will be much more powerful on those computers with more information. In other words, you will be able to optimize the performance of those who need it most.
In addition to improvements in file search, the solution to the problem related to explorer.exe would also arrive altogether. This came when looking for information and the browser was hanging, but after closing it and reopening it, the browser did not work.
The two improvements, which seek better performance for a pleasant user experience, would arrive in the second half of the year.
In doing so, they adhere to a strict policy of not releasing constant updates to the operating system which can lead to major compatibility issues.
