Microsoft announced the rollout of Windows 11 which they say a “Redefinition in the computation”. It is not necessary to have a formal introduction to windows but it is a fact that Windows is the most used operating system across the globe for almost three decades. Almost 73% of PCs have windows as their OS today.
People use it on their PC at home, for gaming, for business and many more. An upgrade in windows beyond the concern of the tech world. Every windows user must know about the upcoming major upgrade.
Because the UI & workflow might differ. It will not be the same as Windows 10. Getting to know about new features and new workflow will help users to adapt well to the OS. Or else, it would take a lot of time for them to get along after the final version rollout. Microsoft worked on every feature with a purpose in mind.
All New Start Button and Task Bar
The start button is not only an identity of windows but, also an immediate helper to all of its users. You can go anywhere and access any file in your system quickly using the start button. In Windows 11, the position of the start button and the entire taskbar is aligned to the centre from the left. Microsoft made this change to ease access. Start button with the help of Microsoft 365 and cloud to track and list the recently used apps and files for quick toggling.
Gaming features in Windows 11
For most of the first introduction to Windows is through gaming. Today, gaming has been the way to let all the stress out after a hard day. Millions of people use Windows for gaming. It supports social gaming where we connect with our friends online and play together.

A Better way of Multitasking
We are using more than one application to complete work today. For example, you are going to create a presentation about Green energy. You will search that in the search engines using a browser. From there, you have to take all the necessary points as notes in the notepad or word software. Then, you have to sort the key points and put that as a neat presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint.
You have to traverse between these applications at any point without any hassle. To support even more complex multi–tasking, snap layouts, snap groups & Desktop layouts are introduced in Windows 11.
Microsoft Teams in Windows 11
The covid-19 pandemic made a huge difference in the way we live. Microsoft teams, Google Meet and Zoom has become the office pantry, park and auditorium. We are now meeting with the people who we love and people with who we work more through digital mediums than in person.
In Windows 11, Microsoft teams are integrated with the taskbar for quick access. This helps you to ping, chat, call your contacts anywhere and anytime despite the OS they are using. For an instant meeting or screen share session, Microsoft teams will be handier when it is available all-time in the taskbar.

In Windows 11, Microsoft initiated stopping this way of working and made available android applications in the Microsoft store. You can download all the android apps through the Amazon app store on your pc. Unbelievable right? This feature is a boon to users like us.
