Microsoft finally announced its new operating system today! Check out everything that was presented about Windows 11 and find out what’s new in it!
Today Microsoft officially confirmed that its new operating system will be called Windows 11. After months of numerous leaks about the OS, in addition to taunts made by the company itself, the successor to Windows 10 is a reality now. During Microsoft’s presentation, we noticed that the focus of the new OS is on simplifying the Windows user interface, plus we even had a redesign of the Microsoft Store, performance improvements, multitasking functions, and much more!
We separate an exclusive editorial with the contents of Windows 11 , check it out.
In Windows 11, the Start menu gained a new face, in addition to a change in its placement, now in the center of the screen, along with the apps pinned to the taskbar. This interface is similar to what we saw in Windows 10X, an OS project designed for dual-screen devices that the company ended up canceling. Now, as you can see, many of the ideas implemented in Windows 10X are in Windows 11.
“Live Tiles” will disappear
Compared to Windows 10, we’ve had the removal of “Live Tiles”, originally implemented in Windows 8, which consists of square icons that may or may not have animations when they’re displayed. Now, on Windows 11 we only have static icons similar to what you find on Android phones, plus the display of recently accessed documents and a search box at the top.
Windows 11 Dark Mode
It’s interesting to note how beautiful the dark mode in Windows 11 compared to what we have today in Windows 10.
Another interesting novelty implemented by Microsoft in the new OS were snap layouts (Snap Layouts), where the user can determine how the layout and format of applications on the screen will be, snapping several programs to be displayed at the same time on the monitor for work. In this way, it is possible to use a single large monitor instead of several, thus improving the efficiency of the activity performed.
Operating system upgrade improvements
But it wasn’t just the simpler layout that the new Windows gained in this new version of the operating system. In Windows 11 updates were 40% smaller and now occur in the background so as not to disturb the user in the middle of their work.
Microsoft Teams natively integrated with Windows
Another new feature that comes with Windows 11 is the integration of Microsoft Teams into the operating system. This will apply to both personal and business accounts. Teams will now be natively located on the taskbar, allowing for more fluid communication with friends, family, and the work team. With this demonstration, it is believed that Skype will be replaced by Teams.
Microsoft’s new operating system will also feature Widgets, where there will be a personalized feed with news, weather, and maps. You can make them appear by swiping your finger on the touch screen of a notebook or tablet, and can even expand to fill the entire screen and display information more comfortably.
Touch screen and pens in focus
According to the presentation by the Windows developer, the new OS will emphasize computers that have touch screens and pens. In this way, the developers have improved tactile feedback and voice typing functions.
PC Games on Windows 11 and native Xbox Game Pass
During the Windows 11 broadcast, operating system enhancements aimed at games were also announced. We will have the Auto HDR feature in the new OS, present on the Xbox Series X /S. In addition, the company promises improvements in Windows 11 performance speed.
In addition to integrating Microsoft Teams natively into Windows 11, another platform being integrated into the new OS is Xbox Game Pass. With the subscription service being natively integrated into Windows 11, the user will be able to more fluidly enjoy xCLoud and play multiple Xbox Series X games in the cloud.
Redesigned Microsoft Store and Android Apps
One of the biggest changes we had in Windows 11 was the redesign of the Microsoft Store. In addition to a new layout, the app store not only provides apps for Windows but also apps developed for Android, such as Instagram and TikTok.
Android apps can be downloaded thanks to a partnership with Amazon and its app store, which can be accessed within the Microsoft Store. With the optimization performed by Intel, Microsoft promises that there will be an excellent user experience.
Microsoft released the necessary requirements to install Windows 11 on your computer, check to see whether it will be possible to install on the computer you already have.
Will I be able to migrate to Windows 11?
Yes, the migration from Windows 7, 8.1, and 10 to Windows 11 will be free, Microsoft has already informed.
