Widgets are designed to help you stay on top of what’s important by bringing together personalized content from favorite apps and services. Windows 11 continues to improve widgets in the latest updates, with additions to widget viewing options, badging, and layout.


All new features will be available to organizations and managed devices, as long as administrators have not disabled widgets entirely.


Here are features rolling out in the latest updates.


Adjust widgets taskbar settings for badging, rotation, and hover: you can control whether widget notifications appear on your taskbar through the widgets settings. Select the profile icon in the top right corner of the widgets board and use the toggles to adjust your notification settings.
Updates to the header, margins, and greetings: you might see some different positions for the widgets board header. The new layout aims to bring consistent, clean, and accessible icons to communicate action and features with simple visuals.


When will this happen:
New features began rolling out starting November. Please note, if you have installed the latest quality updates for Windows 11, versions 21H2 or 22H2, but still don’t see all the new widgets features, it might be because some will roll out over several weeks, and might not be available to everyone at once.
