What to Expect With Windows 11
Microsoft is saying Windows 11 is the most significant update to Windows in the past decade. The new version of Windows was officially announced yesterday by Microsoft. It includes visual improvements, Microsoft Teams integration for remote workers, a new Microsoft store, as well as other changes.
Some of the highlights include
- User Interface Updates: One of the most exciting features is the Start menu and new Start button that’s centered on the taskbar. The menu opens a window with pinned apps, “recommended” recently opened documents and a search bar. Also introduced is “snap layouts”, “snap groups”, and “softer visuals”.
- Teams Integration: Microsoft Teams will be directly integrated into Windows 11 and will have its own icon on the taskbar. You can chat, call, video call, with anyone anywhere in the world on any platform or device.
- Windows without a keyboard: Windows 11 will roughly keep the same visual appearance when the device’s keyboard is detached, for those users who like to use it like a tablet. Windows 11 also features a new, floating keyboard and voice typing that can automatically punctuate and follow voice commands.
- Gaming: Windows 11 will bring an “Auto HDR” feature for gamers that will automatically improve the color and lighting of game displays.
- New Microsoft Store: Microsoft completely rebuilt their store to make it quicker and to add more choices for users.
Windows 11 comes six years after Microsoft last overhauled its operating system with Windows 10, which is currently running on around 1.3 billion devices worldwide.
