Windows 10, which was released in 2015, is being phased out in favor of a new Microsoft operating system, Windows 11. This post will walk you through the major Windows 11 exclusive features. After going through this write-up of Windows 11 new features, you can decide whether an upgrade is right for you or not.
Make sure the device you’re going to upgrade satisfies the Windows 11 minimum system requirements before deciding if you want the additional system specifications.
Windows 11 New Features
Below are some popular and exclusive Windows 11 new features, on which you will get your hands after upgrading to Windows 11.
You can quickly resize windows in Windows 10 to take up either half of your screen. With Snap Layouts in Windows 11, you can resize and position windows in any quadrant of your screen and arrange them however you want.
In Windows 11, there’s a layout button between the ‘Close’ and ‘Minimize’ buttons at the top-right of a window that you may use to resize and reposition your windows much more quickly.
For much of Windows 10’s existence, users have chastised the delayed and intrusive nature of Windows Updates. Microsoft is taking another important step to address this in Windows 11 by saying that updates will be 40% smaller and hence delivered 40% faster.
Furthermore, Microsoft promises background installation of Windows Update, allowing users who have been annoyed by their computer being taken over by Microsoft to continually update itself to breathe a sigh of relief, as updates can now be installed while you use your device with Windows 11.
Widgets and other comparable features like Interests on the taskbar have long been a part of Windows, but Windows 10 has chosen to focus those elements into apps rolled into the Microsoft Store rather than using widgets.
You may view your Widgets at any time, which include a number of handy tools and services that are typically customized to you and your regions, such as the weather outdoors and your weekly calendar, among other things.
Android apps can now run natively on your Windows device in Windows 11. There’s no need for an Android virtual machine or another Windows-specific version.
Do you have an Android-only game or program that you’d like to utilize on your laptop, tablet, or desktop? It merely takes a few clicks on the Microsoft Store in Windows 11 to get such programs up and running.
You can enable HDR on a system level if you have a current gaming console and an HDR display, which will automatically convert traditional, SDR material to HDR.
This type of HDR isn’t as excellent as content that comes with its own HDR implementation, but for users who have an HDR display, the ability to watch their favorite everyday content in HDR is a welcome enhancement.
