If you use Windows 11, you might know that the operating system ships with a new design and brings a wide range of new features. One of the great features of Windows 11 is the ability to process videos automatically to enhance the quality.

Yes, Windows 11 has a feature to control playback settings that automatically enhance videos for some apps. The only catch is that Windows 11 only controls the playback settings of Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps such as the Edge browser, Photos, Movies & TV, and the video apps that you download from the Microsoft Store.

Windows 11 can’t control the playback settings of videos playing on a web browser or any other video streaming app downloaded from third-party sources. Another thing that you should note is that the feature will only work on compatible hardware.
