One of the most anticipated things of 2021is windows 11. Microsoft is about to announce the brand new windows 11 on June 24 at thescheduled event. Before that, windows 11 is already here and I got a chance to test outthis early developer build of Windows 11. Hey guys My Name Is KSK Royal, Welcome tothe new video of Microsoft windows. This is the First Look At The Upcoming Windows 11,in this video, I am gonna walk through the top features & changes of windows 11 thatare going to change the overall look of windows 10. Before talking about the features, I am wannatalk about the good news of the windows 11 update.
According to XDA developers Thosewho are running Windows 7, 8, or 10 with an officially licensed key from Microsoft, aregoing to upgrade to windows 11 for free of cost. This is yet to be confirmed by the Microsoftteam at their event. Now lets get into the features part. The moment you are done installing windows 11, it’s gonna show you the brand new andupdated welcome screen that tells the user to create the user account and activate thethings like location & more. This welcome screen has been completely redesigned fromscratch and looks fantastic. Microsoft is taking Windows 11 to the nextlevel.
In one word they have done a lot of visual improvements to the system UI. Let’sstart with the taskbar & start menu. TaskBar & Start Menu One of the biggest changes of windows 11,is the brand new taskbar and start menu. By default the taskbar items are moved to thecenter there is an option in the setting that you can still customize the taskbar alignment.Also, notice there is a brand new start menu windows logo, which looks more modern. Tappingon this icon shows the start menu, this is the brand new start menu which looks supercool. On the top right, you can see an option to view all of the installed applications.This start menu is divided into three sections. The top section shows the pinned applicationswhich are user-customizable and the Center section is the recommended section, whichprovides suggestions about the recent changes happened in the system, the bottom sectionshows the user ID and power button.
Overall I would say the all-new start menu is easierto use compared to Windows 10. Search Its time to talk about search. Just likeSpotlight in macOS Monterey, Microsoft has done a lot of things to all new search toimprove its capabilities beyond you imagine. You can almost search anything on the systemlike contacts, ask about the weather, perform some calculations, and more. New WorkspacesNext To the search bar there is a new icon. Microsoft is calling as a task view, aka Workspaces.With Windows 11, the workspaces are getting an overhaul. Thanks to these brand-new horizontalworkspaces that are very easy to navigate across the system. Check this out, tappingon this icon reveals the all apps from that workspace, you can quickly glance throughall of the opened apps. You can also create a new workspace by clicking on the new desktop.These workspaces are super fancy and give the true power to an end-user to organizethe apps according to their workflow.
Also, there is a keyboard shortcut, holding Ctrl+Win+ Arrow keys switch between the workspaces. Widgets Section Time to talk about widgets, you might haveseen in the latest build windows 10. With windows 1 1, Microsoft is calling it as awidgets. This section shows all the information and cards about your interests.Kinda similar to the google card feed on android. There is no option on this build to add anyapp widgets like clock, screen time which is kinda bummer. We have to wait for the officialevent of windows 11 and see what Microsoft is gonna a say a word about this all-new widgetspanel. I would say, Microsoft should copy a macOS and provide a way to add real appwidgets that are most useful to an end-user. Redesigned Apps With Windows 11, many default apps are goingto have a new look. Apps like Settings, Microsoft store & more are getting a new design language.Take a look at the new file explorer. There are some new icons added to the frequent folders.Also if you notice there are rounded corners added to the edges of each window that lookssuper cool. At the bottom, you can see a very lite dark shadow added to the app. Updated Action CentreWith Windows 11, Action center also got a few design changes, The new system togglesat the bottom look more natural, and notice the rounded corners at the edges of each toggle. Improved Dark Mode & BlurThanks to the improved blur effect, The Dark Mode in Windows 11 is simply magnificent.Things like the start menu, taskbar, action center, and default apps look super fancy.All-New App Snapping Experience We all know that windows is one of the best-operatingsystem out there in the market, that allows the user to snap the apps on the screen sideby side.
With Windows 11 Microsoft is going to take the all-new snapping experience tothe next level. Inside any app, hovering on the maximize icon shows a way how you snapor align the app on the desktop. For example, lets say I wanna snap this app to the left,I would pick this option, instantly as you can see the app switcher on the right is poppedout and helps to snap another app to the right side. This is very interesting, also noticethat blur effect you get to see while snapping the apps manually. With all-new snapping tools,you can tell the system how you wanna snap the app and the system does it for you. These are some of the top features of windows11, other features include a new ink workspace, faster performance, brand new system animations,new icons, brand new media controls & more.
