Windows 11 just got better for DX11 games and anyone who insists on playing with a controller

The new Windows 11 update is rolling out from today, and if you’re a PC gamer with a penchant for windowed gaming or using a controller there are some upgrades in this version you’ll want to check out.

The headline feature for gamers in this update is something called Controller Bar. Essentially it’s a popup bar that works in conjunction with Windows 11’s integrated Xbox functionality to deliver a list of your most recently played games and launchers—all accessible via a few button presses on any controller you may have plugged into your machine. If you have an Xbox controller plugged in, you need only hit the Xbox button to bring it up.
