Windows 11 KB5039319 beta adds Start Menu jump lists, new Spotlight UI | Laptop News

Windows 11 KB5039319 is now available for those in the Beta Channel, and it bumps the OS to Build 22635.3785. Windows 11 Build 22635.3785 comes with a lot of new improvements, such as support for jump lists in the Start Menu, an improved Spotlight experience, and more.
