Steve’s finally done it… He was brave enough to switch to Windows 11.
With the recent Windows 11 launch late last year, many of the users might not be aware of what differences there will be between 10 and 11. Windows 11 begun its free release to the public on October 5th and came with a bunch of new features. Not every PC will have the update immediately, as the age of your PC matters – with newer PC’s getting it first and older ones having to wait. Below are some standout features of Windows 11:
- New clean and simple interface. The most noticeable feature of Windows 11 is the brand-new interface. This features a clean design with rounded corners, pastel shades, and a centered Taskbar (which can be changed back to the usual left side).
- Integrated Android apps. Android apps are coming, and they may not yet be available. They will be accessible from the updated Microsoft Store.
- While widgets have been around for a while, they weren’t the easy to access. They will now be accessed directly from the Taskbar.
- Integrated Microsoft Teams. Teams has been given a full re-look and now comes pinned to the Taskbar in Windows 11 to make is easier to find and access.
- Integrated Xbox features. Windows 11 will get some features found in Xbox consoles, like Auto HDR and DirectStorage. This is aimed to improve your gaming experience on Windows 11.
- Multiple desktops. An amazing feature in Windows 11 is the ability to set up multiple virtual desktops. This includes toggling between each desktop, which can all be named, used differently, and given different backgrounds.
- Easier transitions from monitor to laptop and better multitasking. A new feature within Windows 11 is called Snap Groups and Snap Layouts. This is a collection of apps you’re using at once that sit in the Taskbar. The collection can come up or be minimized at the same time for easier task switching. They also let you plug and unplug a monitor without loosing where your open tabs are.
If Steve can do it, so can you!
