The new widgets panel will undoubtedly be the next major change in Windows 11. It’s easy to find thanks to the new centred taskbar icons. It is a personalised feed that displays weather updates, the most recent news curated to your preferences, and other information. We’re not sure if this 11 version will support third-party widgets from other app developers.

Furthermore, Microsoft has redesigned the Settings UI to make it look cleaner and easier to use. In this 11 version, there is also a redesigned ‘Action Center’ for quick access to certain settings and notifications.

The Redmond giant has also introduced a new “Snap Layouts” feature, which makes it easier to snap apps on your Windows 11 PC. In apps, you can now see the layout options by hovering over the maximise button.
• New Desktop User Interface + Start Menu
The taskbar icons are now centred, all apps have rounded corners, and Windows feels revitalised. The most noticeable change has to be the redesigned Start Menu. Furthermore, it is floating (separated from the taskbar) and has a new pop-up animation when compared to Windows 10.
• Enhancements to Gaming
In terms of gaming enhancements, Microsoft is including Auto-HDR support in Windows 11 to provide you with a better graphics experience. In addition, the company is porting its Direct Storage API from Xbox Series X to enable faster launch times and gaming performance.
• Redesigned Microsoft Store
The Microsoft Store has been redesigned and is now more powerful in Windows 11. The most significant change is that the company now provides access to UWP apps, PWAs, and Win32 apps directly from the Store.
Microsoft Store will have Android Apps
The Amazon Appstore has been integrated directly into the Microsoft Store, allowing you to download Android apps on Windows 11. To make this a reality, Microsoft employs Intel Bridge technology. You can then pin these Android apps to the Start menu, taskbar, and other locations.
• Integration with Microsoft Teams
In addition, the new operating system includes native Microsoft Teams integration. Thanks to a dedicated icon in the taskbar, you will be able to contact your friends or colleagues directly from the taskbar.
