Want to open some specific websites or webpages in the Chrome browser automatically when you start it? Here’s how to do that easily.
If you use Microsoft’s Copilot AI assistant on your Windows computer, you might have noticed that the web links in the Learn more section of the interface open in the Microsoft Edge browser.

In the Search bar on the Taskbar in Windows 11, there’s an illustrative image by default, which some users may find distracting.
The clickable image is there to highlight the search recommendations of content that Microsoft finds interesting. The image changes periodically, depending on the topic being recommended.
If you don’t want the search recommendations and prefer a more streamlined look and feel of the Search bar and Windows interface, there is a simple way to remove the illustration.

By default, web links in emails you receive through the Windows Mail and Calendar app open in the Microsoft Edge browser.

The most visually noticeable novelty when you log into Windows 11 is the taskbar alignment. By default, the Windows Start button and other icons on the taskbar are aligned to the center of the screen in Windows 11. These had been traditionally aligned to the left in Windows 10 and older Windows versions. Because of that, many people habitually reach to the lower left corner of the screen in order to open the Start menu or launch programs from the taskbar. If you don’t want to change this habit while using Windows 11, you can easily move its taskbar to the left to get the old-style alignment.
