Hands-on with the secret feature of Windows 11 22H2 – Desktop Stickers

Written by admin

Windows 11 version 22H2 will apparently launch in October with several improvements, including support for drag and drop on the taskbar, Windows Spotfight, and more. It looks like the operating system is getting another new personalization called “Stickers” in Windows 11 version 22H2, but the feature is apparently hidden in the preview builds.

As part of Windows 11 22H2, Microsoft is adding new ways to personalize your desktop operating system to your liking. In build 22621, the RTM as confirmed by Microsoft itself, it is possible to enable the new ‘Stickers’ features.

As the name suggests, the Stickers feature of Windows 11 allows users to edit and add stickers to the desktop. The Windows Clipboard or Emoji panel has been updated with built-in stickers of various objects, animals and even anime characters. Stickers can be placed over your desktop background and they will not disappear when you change your wallpaper.

At this point, the Stickers feature is purely for personalization and does not provide any kind of additional functionality. For example, you cannot add stickers to the desktop with notes or additional information such as the date and time.

Likewise, it won’t work if you’re using a slideshow as wallpaper or if you have multiple monitors. However, it works very well with Windows Spotlight, which changes the background automatically.

This feature will debut alongside Windows 11 version 22h2, and references in the operating system suggest additional stickers may be offered through the Microsoft Store in the future.
