Main features of Windows 11

The UI, in particular, appears to be slicker than in previous versions of Windows. Snap layouts, which let users to easily snap an application on their screen, have been improved to offer numerous configurations based on what users want. The operating system also makes docking and redocking easier, removing the need to modify apps.

 

Redesigned Start Menu and Taskbar

The new Start Menu is the first thing that we noticed with Windows 11. This is one of the most exciting things for us, despite the fact that it is contentious. The new design heralds in a new era of Windows for Microsoft, while Windows 10 fades into the background.

Instead of being off to the left as it has been since Windows 95 (except in Windows 8), Microsoft has moved the Start Menu to the center, and however it can still be moved to the left if desired. What’s more, it floats!

That is a significant alteration in and of itself, but the design has also changed. Instead of Live Tiles and a large list of apps, the Windows 11 Start Menu gives you your most recent files and “pinned” apps that makes it friendly.

There are now a variety of animations available with Windows 11. Moving windows around your screen for multitasking creates a hazy look in front of your wallpaper. Touching the top of a window with your finger will reveal a new window outline, allowing you to see where it will go.

That isn’t all, though. The animations for opening and dismissing programs, as well as maximizing and reducing windows, have all been updated. Apps are now minimized as soon as they reach the Taskbar. When you press the maximize button, they also have an effect where they open from the inside. It gives the old Windows a new look and feel.

Touch controls have been improved.

When you touch a window with your finger, Windows 11 shows you a larger representation of where it is moving. If you have a tablet, this makes it easier to use Windows. A redesigned keyboard is also included in Windows 11. It supports inputting GIF pictures, as well as providing a cleaner representation and improved aural feedback when you press keys.

Microsoft also considered those who utilize accessories such as the Surface Pen. The Windows Ink Workspace now has a new menu where you may modify your apps. You may now add your own programs to the Windows Ink Workspace so that you don’t have to go to the Start Menu every time you want to start inking.

New Action Centre

The entire user interface has been made more consistent by Microsoft. You’ll notice that Action Center now has softened corners and larger slider buttons, which makes pressing buttons much easier. The buttons of Action Center are fashioned in such a way that they naturally fit the tips of your fingers. It’s an energizing refresh that makes you want to reach for your phone or tablet.

New looking icons

New icons for documents, downloads, and images are included in the update. You’ll notice newer icons as you progress through the Operating System.

Virtual desktop management has taken on a new dimension.

In Windows 11, there is also a new feature for virtual desktops. Virtual desktop management has been moved to a dedicated section at the bottom of the screen. You can also change the background on each virtual desktop individually by dragging it left and right with your mouse or finger. It’s a more natural and integrated approach to dealing with problems.

Widgets

Widgets are a new feature in Windows 11, and they are driven by Microsoft Edge and Artificial Intelligence. These widgets allow you to quickly check your calendar, weather, news, to-do list, photos, and more.

 

Widgets provide you with a customizable information feed that you may arrange on your desktop in any way you choose. Widgets can slide out to cover a section or the entire desktop, depending on your needs.

New Windows Store

Microsoft is overhauling the Microsoft Store with Windows 11, making it faster and easier to find the apps you want. That’s all well and good, but the announcement that Android apps would be immediately available for Windows 11 is likely to get the most attention.

Android Apps

You will find Android apps in the Microsoft Store and download them through the Amazon Appstore.

Microsoft Teams integration

Despite the fact that many Microsoft apps will no longer be included as standard in Windows 11, Microsoft is striving to make Teams considerably more mainstream by incorporating it directly into Windows 11. Microsoft Teams chat allows you to communicate via video calls, text, or voice. It will function on Windows, Android, and iOS (although FaceTime will only work over web links and will not have an app). Alternatively, you can start presenting right from the taskbar.
