The day before, Microsoft announced the release of a new update for Windows 11 2022 Update (version 22H2), which brought with it a number of innovations announced earlier. In particular, after installing the update, users will have a tabbed interface in Explorer, a taskbar overflow function, and an item to launch the Task Manager should appear in the context menu of the taskbar.
But there is a little nuance called A / B testing. Because of this, some of the presented functions are available only to a limited circle of users. And the funny thing is that it was the “Task Manager” item in the context menu that turned out to be unavailable.
Fortunately, we can always use the ViveTool utility to force a feature to be enabled. And if you do not want to use third-party utilities, then below you will find a way to enable the function through the registry editor.
cd /d "C:\ViVeTool"
vivetool /enable /id:36860984 /store:bothand press Enter.
If you want to disable the features, then use the following command:
vivetool /disable /id:36860984 /store:both
regeditand press Enter.
