Windows 11 is almost here. Back in June, Microsoft released “the next generation of Windows” at its virtual event, and some big changes are coming to the long-standing operating system, including its first name change in six years. Windows 11 is the next evolution of Windows and it offers many innovations and focused on enhancing end-user productivity in a fresh experience that is flexible and fluid. The Windows 11 public beta is already available to download, and the full release will begin rolling out in October 5.
Here are 5 cool features of windows 11
A new, Mac-like user interface: Windows 11 features a clean design with rounded corners, pastel shades and a centered Start menu and Taskbar.
Widgets: While they’ve been around for a while (remember desktop gadgets on Windows Vista?), including in a recent Windows 10 update, you can now access widgets directly from the Taskbar and personalize them to see whatever you’d like.
Easier transition from monitor to laptop, and better multitasking: The new OS includes features called Snap Groups and Snap Layouts — collections of the apps you’re using at once that sit in the Taskbar, and can come up or be minimized at the same time for easier task switching. They also let you plug and unplug from a monitor more easily without losing where your open windows are located.
Better virtual desktop support: Windows 11 will let you set up virtual desktops in a way that’s more similar to MacOS, toggling between multiple desktops for personal, work, school or gaming use. You can also change your wallpaper on each virtual desktop.
Integrated Android apps: Android apps will be coming to Windows 11 and installable from within the new Microsoft Store via the Amazon App store. (There were a couple of ways to access Android apps on Windows 10, including if you had a Samsung Galaxy phone, but this will make it native. Note that Android apps will not be available upon the first release of Windows 11 in October.)
Those are just few out of many features, Windows 11 is designed to support today’s hybrid work environment, and intended to be the most reliable, secure, connected, and high-performance Windows operating system ever. It can only get better.
Enjoy the revolution of new Microsoft’s new operating system
