Right now, Microsoft is focusing good part of its resources on the Windows 11 operating system, a version that has been slowly adopted by users. At first it didn’t have the expected acceptance, but now Windows 10 users are migrating. But Windows 12 is on development and almost ready according to some rumors.
The Windows 11 operating system has many detractors and Microsoft is already working in the next big project. Initially it may be called Windows 12 but the name Next Valley is also circulating. Nowadays little is known about Windows 12. The occasional rumors surface from time to time but there’s no official or definitive statement. We gathered the most recent updates in order to know what is being cooked in the Microsoft operating system world.
The updates coming with a Windows 12 release
The new Windows 12 will bring, according to the rumors, important updates that users wanted to see. For example, improvements in the taskbar features, fragmented operating system tools and greater compatibility with Android devices.
The improvements in the taskbar of Windows 12
The taskbar of Windows 11 is one of the most criticized elements of its interface. Microsoft is working on this issue and there may be improvements in Window s12. The floating taskbar similar to Apple’s desktop one and icons located on the upper right corner may become the solution for this interface issue.

Greater compatibility with Android mobile devices
In the last years Microsoft has been trying to improve the compatibility between Windows and Android. We can talk about several apps and platforms that help both operating systems to interact faster and more efficiently. The Your Phone application will receive significant improvements in Windows 12.
