What to expect from Windows 11?
Some things are confirmed, according to previous accesses and others are rumors, but one thing is certain: Microsoft is striving to make this new operating system as good as the last one. As you can see, Windows 11 Beta is an update of Windows 10, even being able to be tested only via a few clicks, if your PC is able to do so. So there’s a lot of expectation that Windows 11 will deliver more fluidity and fewer bugs. Check out some aspects:
- New design : Unlike other versions of Windows, the Start button will default to the middle. “It puts you at the center,” says Panos Penay, head of product at Microsoft;
- New Start Menu : just like the new Start button, the Start Menu itself will be based on the “centralized” concept, with slightly more spaced icons and a somewhat “cleaner” view of the applications;
- New modes : you’ll be able to switch between Light and Dark Modes, so you can offer your views, if you choose Dark Mode, more rest; while Light Mode has a white look and can be a little more aggressive. Not to mention that there is sync in the application icons according to the chosen Mode;
- Snap Layouts : here is not an improvement, but a novelty. With Snap Layout you’ll be able to organize how more than one application or program will behave on the screen, as you decide;
- Snap Groups : with this also new feature, you’ll be able to open groups of applications and/or programs at the reach of a click. The system will remember how you used more than one of these mentioned and will open again when activated;
- Windows Widgets : very popular on smartphones, widgets will help you view information about certain applications and/or programs without having to click on them, in a preview that will be on your desktop;
- General improvements : the new system will also offer a reduction of up to 40% in the updates carried out, as they will be made while you move your PC;
- Android Apps on PC : You can also download and use Android apps on PC running Windows 11.
