Microsoft appears to be working on adding a couple of new settings to its Task Manager app on Windows 11. According to this latest Windows Insider leak, Microsoft could add information about App Health, Battery Health, and more in the Windows 11 app.
This new home page for Task Manager has been spotted in the Windows 11 Insider build 22543 and it was shared by the Twitter account FireCube yesterday. The hidden page is clearly a work in progress as it still includes comments from Windows developers about upcoming new features and changes.

Microsoft has yet to discuss these new Task Manager updates for Windows 11, the Windows Insider team recently made it clear that new builds coming to the Dev Channel could become more experimental soon. This means that Windows Insiders may get access to more new features than before, even though everything that makes to public testing isn’t guaranteed to ship to all Windows 11 users.
In addition to these Task Manager changes, Windows enthusiasts also spotted new Wallpaper Stickers and other secret features in recent Windows 11 Insider builds. Microsoft hasn’t released any new bits for the Dev Channel since two weeks, and we’ll see if the company starts rolling out some of these new features with the next Windows 11 Dev Channel build, which may well be announced later today.
If you’re not a Windows Insider, Microsoft previously announced that Windows 11 is also set to receive its first big update later this month. The new features coming to the OS include taskbar improvements, a redesigned NotePad app, as well as a new Media Player app that will replace Groove Music. This update will also bring Android apps and the Windows Subsystem for Android to the OS in preview.
