The “Moment 2” features in Windows 11 22H2 were enabled by the previous optional update. The optional March 2023 update is smaller than the February 2023 update, but it still includes a lot of cool features.
For instance, the company is integrating Start menu notifications for Microsoft accounts. The Start menu will display a notification advertising Microsoft accounts and OneDrive. The tech giant said a small number of users would get the notification at first, but that number would grow in the coming weeks.
In Windows 11, Microsoft is also updating the search bar. The update also made the search box appear lighter in the custom color mode of Windows. This occurs when the Settings > Personalization > Colors default theme for Windows 11 is dark while the app mode is light.
