Undoubtedly, no one expected the launch of Windows 11. But Microsoft wanted to take advantage of this resurgence to make it known. Therefore, this company has made public all the details of this operating system. This has made very important changes in the sections and at a visual level.
Windows 11 wants to leave behind the Windows 10 interface. In fact, to achieve this, it has made some visual changes. Mainly in the start menu. For many years, that menu has been located in the same place. In the lower-left corner of the desktop. However, with this update, this menu changes its format and position.
Now, the start button and the applications pinned to the taskbar are in the middle. This is something that reminds us of the position of the macOS Dock. Therefore, it is a radical change within the Microsoft operating system. However, if this position is not your favorite, you can change it without any problem. All you have to do is press the right mouse button on the taskbar. In order to go to the settings. There, there is an option to put all the options on the left side.
On the other hand, when you click the start button, the menu is also different. Also, this button is not glued to the taskbar. This is floating on the desk. Also, the corners of those windows are now rounded. And, in this update, there are no animated tiles anymore. Because these have been around since Windows 8 and it was time for a change. Instead, Microsoft added two distinct areas.
At the top, we will find recent application launchers. While, at the bottom, there are shortcuts to recent files and documents. Also, documents that the system recognizes should be there.
Iconography in Windows 11
The iconography will also change significantly. In the operating system leaks, there are new icons for the Windows logo. Also, for folder icons such as Images, downloads, documents, among others. Even for different applications.
However, the operation of the start menu inherits the behavior of Windows 10. Despite the fact that the search bar does not appear in the first term within it. As we type, suggestions will start to appear. In order to launch applications or search quickly.
As if that were not enough, the multitasking experience also changes. With this update, we will be able to continue placing two windows facing each other. But now things will go even further thanks to Snap Layouts. Because these allow you to place windows in different positions. In order to distribute them on the desktop in halves, thirds, quarters, and more sizes. This option will allow you to get the most out of multiple monitors. We can connect or disconnect them without losing work because they adapt to the scenarios.
Virtual desktops are also another of the outstanding elements. These allow us to reorganize different types of tasks to organize ourselves better.
Full integration of Teams in Windows 11
With this update, Teams is now integrated. In order to allow the use of this messaging and video conferencing platform natively. However, this decision is very curious because they leave Skype in the background. In addition, suspicions about Microsoft’s practice are born with this idea. It even favors different solutions over other alternatives.
Windows Widgets are distinguishing features of this edition. It is a feed that is powered by artificial intelligence. Through this, we can access content of our preferences and experience of use. On the other hand, the tactile experience is also powered by haptic technology. Because it responds to touch strokes or stylus strokes. Windows 11 even includes a virtual keyboard that can be accessed by voice.
An update every year
Microsoft has made it clear that there will now only be one update per year. Instead of two, how the present was happening now. In fact, this will avoid issues in performance, stability, and more. Because the previous biannual rhythm of Windows 10 had affected the system in a considerable way. Also, the updates will be 40% smaller in size. This will even help reduce download and installation time.
Games with Xbox series x/s features
Innovations in the world of video games could not be absent. For example, the case of Auto HDR support. This is an option that is present in consoles but will now be available in Windows 11. Thanks to this alternative, we will win integers in dynamic ranges. Also, this will improve the visual experience.
DirectStorage API: An option that allows you to load some resources quickly. In order to make virtual worlds more spectacular than before.
Xbox application: An item that will greatly strengthen the system. In the same way that Windows 10 was doing it. Also, here Game Pass has the starring role.
Windows 11 and the redesigned store
Through the new Microsoft Store, developers earn a lot of integers. Therefore, the company seeks for the community to obtain benefits. Through this new software distribution system. Also, this is a very important step. Because now it will be possible to integrate your own payment gateways. Developers will have the possibility of taking 100% of the income from each of their applications. They will be able to distribute them using the Microsoft platform and others.
In fact, they will be able to take the total revenue without Microsoft taking anything. This update includes the best ranking of apps. On the other hand, the native support of Android applications is another surprising news. Because these can be used on PCs as their own applications. However, it is necessary to verify how these applications will work. But, without a doubt, the proposal is completely interesting. And, it is a coup because it will compete with Chrome OS.
Through the official Windows 11 site, it is possible to verify this information in detail. There, it is specified that a computer with a 64-bit CPU is required. Also, with at least two 1 GHz cores. Also, it should be noted that there will be no support for 32-bit processors. Storage of at least 64GB AND 4GB of RAM is a big deal.
Another essential requirement is to have TPM 2.0. Because this standard is focused on hardware security. All this, through cryptography. In addition, it is a common component in PC manufacturers in recent years.
