How to enable Fluent Design Task Manager in latest Windows 11 build

Microsoft today launched Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22538 version. In the new version, Microsoft quietly added a new version of the task manager based on the mica dynamic material language design. Why is it silent? Because Microsoft did not mention this new version of the task manager in the blog, the new version is not turned on by default and it is difficult to find. After checking, the author of ViveTool found a new version of the task manager, which can be opened after testing and also supports dark mode and light mode.

The new version of the task manager remains basically the same in terms of main content, such as the performance of the navigation bar, services, users, details, application history and processor, and so on. The main options of common task management functions are the same as in the previous version, but the buttons to run new tasks and end tasks are added directly on the main interface for easy operation. In the past, to run a new task, you need to click the file in the task manager to operate, and to end the task, you need to right-click the corresponding process to operate. In addition, the top of the process management also adds information overview of CPU, GPU, memory, disk, and network, etc., that is, you can view most of the content in one interface.
To enable the new version of the manager, we need to use the ViveTool tool, then follow the parameter instructions provided by the author and restart the system to see the new version. Of course, this function is only limited to the latest development version of Windows 11. In addition, the tray area on the right side of the taskbar of this version has an overlapping display, and users can suspend the upgrade.
