The day before, Microsoft released a new insider build of Windows 11 numbered 25197, which began testing the updated system tray on the regular taskbar. Now, when you hover over the icons in the lower right corner of the taskbar, all buttons will have a rounded shape. Previously, it was part of the tablet version of the taskbar, which, by the way, also returned to the system.
And, of course, there were some hidden changes. Microsoft is working on a new system tray icon animation, but it’s disabled by default. It will probably be introduced in one of the next builds of Windows 11 for the Dev channel, but in the meantime, you can force it to be enabled using the ViVeTool utility.
cd /d "C:\ViVeTool"
vivetool /enable /id:26008830 /store:bothand press Enter.
If you want to disable animations, then use the following command:
vivetool /disable /id:26008830 /store:both
