Microsoft’s new operating system, Windows 11, began a phased deployment earlier this month (it’s the first major upgrade since Windows 10 in 2015). While only certain PCs received the update notification, you can still download Windows 11 to your device if it matches the eligibility criteria. If you already have Windows 10, you will be able to upgrade to Windows 11 for free. However, you might be wondering what’s new and whether it’s worth downloading right away. It’s a good question even if you don’t have Windows 10 yet (you’ll need it before upgrading to Windows 11). You have until 2025 to make a decision, when Microsoft claims Windows 10 will no longer be supported.
Let’s go over the major changes Microsoft made and get into what’s truly changing before you install the new OS. Everything that has changed between Windows 10 and Windows 11 is listed here. Also, see our top Windows 11 features and how to use them, as well as everything we wanted in Windows 11 but didn’t get, and how to change your default search engine.
Windows 10 V/S Windows 11: Every Big Difference In The New OS
Design And Interface
Windows 11 introduces a brand-new, more Mac-like user interface. It has a minimalist style with rounded sides and pastel colors. Along with the Taskbar, the Start menu is moved to the center of the screen. If you wish, you can shift them back to the left, as they are in Windows 10.
Android App Integration
Android apps will be available in the Microsoft Store via the Amazon AppStore for Windows 11 (albeit not right soon). (You could get Android apps on Windows 10 in a variety of ways before, including if you had a Samsung Galaxy phone, but this will make it native.) This is something that Windows fans have been waiting for for years, and it represents yet another step toward the convergence of mobile and laptop systems.
Better Virtual Desktop Support
Windows 11 will allow you to set up virtual desktops in a more Mac-like manner, allowing you to switch between many desktops at the same time for personal, work, education, or gaming purposes. This was more difficult to set up and utilize with Windows 10.
Easier Transition From Monitor To Laptop
Snap Groups and Snap Layouts are new features in the new OS, which are groups of apps you’re using at the same time that sit in the taskbar and can come up or be dismissed at the same time for simpler task switching. They also make it easier to plug and unplug from a display without losing track of where your open windows are.
Microsoft Teams Added To The Taskbar
Teams will get a makeover and will be integrated right into the Windows 11 taskbar, making it quicker to use (and more similar to Apple’s FaceTime). Teams can be accessed via Windows, Mac, Android, or iOS.
While widgets have been around for a while (remember desktop gadgets on Windows Vista? ), you can now access them directly from the Taskbar and customize them to show whatever you want.
Enhanced Touchscreen, Voice And Pen Support
With extra space between icons on the taskbar and gestures, Microsoft has attempted to improve the touch experience on tablets. In addition, Windows 11 adds haptics to your digital pen, allowing you to hear and feel vibrations when taking notes or drawing. Finally, the operating system integrates voice typing and commands across the system.
Xbox Technology Is Set To Improve Gaming
To better gaming on your Windows PC, Windows 11 will include features similar to those present in Xbox consoles, such as Auto HDR and Direct Storage. Microsoft has taken another step toward merging PCs and Xbox consoles.
