Windows 11 adds support for Auto HDR, VRR in windowed games

The Windows 11 2022 update is releasing today, and while it’s mostly a behind-the-scenes update for most PCs, gamers can look forward to some new features. First off, Microsoft is adding support for Auto HDR, VRR (variable refresh rates), and better latency for windowed games. Previously, these were only features you could use in full-screen mode. The change should be a boon for streamers and anyone looking to multitask while deleting theirs Halo infinity daily newspapers.

Controller Bar in Windows 11 2022 Update


Speaking of HDR, it’s now even easier to adjust your monitor’s settings with an improved HDR calibration tool. Auto HDR is on its way to more titles too, which should be good news if you want to (literally) see older games in a new light. Less importantly, the Xbox game bar will be transformed into a new Windows controller bar that will display your recently played games and launchers. You can access it by pressing the Xbox button on an Xbox controller (or third-party equivalent).

While none of these changes are groundbreaking, they all help make Windows 11 a better environment for PC gamers. (Let’s just hope we eventually find a more flexible way to install games from the Microsoft Store.)
