Notepad and Media Player Updated on Windows 11

Microsoft stated last month that it will begin bringing out an Android app compatibility and Taskbar upgrades to all Windows 11 users in February. They also included a refreshment of Notepad and Media Player.

At the heart of Media Player is a full-featured music library that allows you to quickly browse and play music, as well as create and manage playlists. All your content in the music and video folders on your PC will appear automatically in your library, and you can also tell Media Player where to look for additional content in app settings. Media Player is optimized for accessibility, with improved keyboard shortcuts and access keys for keyboard users as well as with other assistive technologies.

The Media Player app has taken the position of the Groove Music app. As a result, if your music collection is already in Groove Music, your library and playlists will be immediately migrated.

As far as Notepad, Microsoft states, “Menus have also been simplified to make it easier to find the actions you want to take in the app, and we’ve added new highly requested features like multi-level undo, colorful emojis, and a modern and efficient find-and-replace experience.” The revamped UI, or user interface, seems modern with a new design aspect from Windows 11.

If you would like to try out the new Notepad or Windows Media Player, just head over to the Microsoft Store and download them.
