Download Windows 11 Pro Insider Preview 10 - A preview build is said to be for Windows 11, confirming a new name for Microsoft's next generation of Windows will be officially released
Ever since Microsoft announced it would announce the next-generation version of Windows on June 24, speculation about a new Windows operating system has been rampant. The main part of this announcement was to be a presentation of a significant user interface change, codenamed Sun Valley. If the information being circulated online is correct and legitimate, then it seems to be so, we can now confirm the next version of Windows is Windows 11.
Modern interface images of Windows 11:
Logo and icons:
- The first change that users will see is the new Windows logo. This is a simpler version of the Windows 10 logo.
- According to BleepingComputer, the Windows out-of-box experience (OOBE) has received an overhaul with new colors, graphics, and settings wizard.
- Microsoft has also introduced a new light and dark mode default wallpaper in Windows 11, as shown below.
- The most important change Windows users will notice is the new Windows 11 Start Menu.
- Borrowed directly from Windows 10X, the new Windows 11 Start Menu floats above the taskbar and is aligned in the center of the screen.
- Users can change the position of the Start Menu from the center to the left side of the screen using the Windows 11 taskbar options.
- The new Start menu will be the change that users can easily recognize in Windows 11 and the change that will take the longest for users to get used to.
- The virtual assistant is now decoupled from the Start Menu and the OS's search engine and now integrated directly into the Windows taskbar.
- Quickly connect and share files with the people and groups that matter most. Simplify your life with tools that put you in control of your email and schedule.
The deep installers in Windows 11 also show a simpler layout and more rounded corners. The icons in My Computer add a modern color, but the arrangement is not much different from Windows 10. On each application window, Windows 11 allows you to choose how to display split screen - something that previous users had to use. use a third party application.
Windows 11 Tablet Improvements:
- Tablet mode has been one of Windows' weak points since Windows 8.
- However, the most important feature currently rumored is a new "gesture layer", which will sit above the user interface and allow users to perform hover-like actions on the touchscreen.
- Using the pen and voice is also expected to receive a nice tweak, with a new look for voice and a context menu for the pen.
- These tablet features could be a showpiece for Windows 11, especially with future Microsoft Surface products.
Windows 11 will be free for users:
The good news is that whether you're using Windows 10 or Windows 7, Windows 8, you can upgrade to Windows 11 for free. This will encourage people to upgrade early, quickly as soon as the official version of Win 11 is released. In my opinion, Windows 11 will release the official version next year, from now on, there will be many more beta versions.
Minimum configuration requirements:
In the event to introduce Windows 11 just took place, for the convenience of users, Microsoft also launched a tool to help users check whether the computer is eligible to install Windows 11 or not. This tool is called Windows PC Health Check and Microsoft allows users to download it for free.
