Everyone likes to watch videos while working on computers with our peripheral vision. It is relaxing and does not harm productivity either. However, that is not always possible and people find themselves jumping from one tab to another while working on one window and watching video media player on another. Notably though, with a laptop running on Windows 11, you can multi-task. Simply, you can watch videos while even working on some other task. How? With the Windows 11 picture-in-picture mode. This mode can help you play your favourite video over other open windows on your Windows 11 without the need to juggle between different tabs.

There is an app on Windows 11 called Films & TV which comes with the support for the picture-in-picture mode to let you enjoy your content even when some other task is being done. However, you need to note that this works only for the videos that are saved in your computer and not for the online videos from YouTube or any other video-streaming website. For that, you will need to use an internet browser that supports picture-in-picture mode.

What is picture-in-picture mode?

For those who don't know about the picture-in-picture mode, it is a feature that allows you to watch video content in a small window over a large screen of another window. Also, you can drag and drop the video window anywhere on your whole screen according to your need. This feature can let you enjoy your favourite content even while working. As Windows 11 is now available to most of the devices, this picture-in-picture mode can be accessed by a wider audience. Let's see how to enable picture-in-picture mode to watch videos on Windows 11.
