How to enable new System Tray in Taskbar on Windows 11

In Windows 11 build 25211, you can now enable the new system tray which includes a new modern design with the ability to drag and drop items.

The new design includes a broader interface with mica texture and rounded corners, a modern tooltip for items, and the ability to drag and drop icons into the system tray.

If you want to get hands-on with the new feature, you can use a third-party tool called “ViVeTool” created by Rafael Rivera and Lucas on GitHub, to enable the option on your PC.

This guide will teach you the steps to turn on the tabs feature on Windows 11.
