How To: Enable New Taskbar Animation in Windows 11 Build 25179

A few days ago, Microsoft released a new Windows 11 Insider Build 25179 to the Dev Channel, which brings with it several improvements and bug fixes. But, as it turned out, not all the changes made are mentioned in the official blog. For example, some insiders noticed updated animation of the appearance of icons on the taskbar. In the video below you can see a comparison of the old and new animations:

Alas, even such a change is undergoing A / B testing and is not available to all participants in the Windows Insider program by default. But if you still want to personally evaluate the new animation, then you can activate it using the ViVeTool utility. To do this, use the following instructions:


  1. Download the ViVeTool utility by this link. This is a new version of ViveTool 0.3.1, the details of which we described in our material.
  2. Unzip the downloaded archive to any place on your computer (for example, you can create a ViVeTool folder in the root of the C: drive and place the files there).
  3. Open a command prompt as an administrator (for example, by typing CMD in the search and selecting the appropriate item).
  4. In the command line, navigate to the folder with ViVeTool using the command cd /d , then press Enter. For example: cd /d "C:\ViVeTool"
  5. Enter command vivetool /enable /id:39072097 /store:both and press Enter.
  6. Make sure that the command line shows the message “Successfully set feature configuration”
  7. Restart your computer to apply the changes.

If you want to disable the new animation, then use the following command: vivetool /disable /id:39072097 /store:both
