With the new version of Windows, Microsoft hopes that users will not take their eyes off the computer to look at the mobile phone. In addition, there will be news for players and increased IT security.
It has been known for some time that a new version of the Windows operating system has been running, but now Microsoft has shown all the news. Much of it has to do with the design and interface, which Microsoft describes as “clean and simple.”
The so-called widget area should be able to collapse and contain things like weather, news, images, and menus. Microsoft’s stated goal is that those who take a break from working on the computer should not pick up the phone, but instead head to the surface of the gadget.
Adds the difference to the taskbar
The start menu has also been given a new look and has moved to the center of the screen. Another novelty is Snap Groups which makes it possible to group applications and programs to be able to see several things at the same time and to easily switch between different documents and windows. Integrating Microsoft’s Teams video chat program right into the taskbar should make it easy to get started with the program.
Some important security features, such as hardware-based isolation, encryption, and malware prevention, are enabled by default for Windows 11. Gamers can enjoy automatic HDR mode as well as DirectX 12 Ultimate and live storage to make games look and charge faster.
No App Store Fee
Android apps will now be found in the Microsoft Store. Within the Store, Windows also takes the opportunity to pay Apple, which is under fire for high Store fees. Apple gets 30 percent of revenue from many of the major app manufacturers, while Windows now announces that they won’t charge the Store at all. This applies as long as the app’s manufacturer uses their own payment system – if they want to use Microsoft’s payment tools, the company takes 15 percent of the revenue.
Windows 11 will be released gradually during the year and also next year.
