Windows 11 Pro build 21996 setup
The first thing that stood out to us in Windows 11 was the new Start Menu. Although controversial, this is one of the most interesting changes. The design ushered in a new era of Windows for Microsoft.
Instead of skewing to the left as it has been since Windows 95 (with the exception of Windows 8), Microsoft is now pushing the Start Menu to the center, although you can still move it to the left if you want. And, now it floats in the middle of the screen!
That alone is a big change, but the design is different too. Instead of having Live Tiles and a long list of apps, Windows 11’s Start Menu shows you your “pinned” apps and most recent files. It makes the things you want to use easy with minimal distraction.
The biggest change to the operating system is on the bottom edge of the desktop, when the icons are placed in the center position, as well as a completely new Start Menu that seems to be inspired by Windows 10X, a project Microsoft has died earlier this year. According to the leak, if you don’t want to, you can still return the Start Menu to its old location like the current Windows 10.
The ISO installation file shows that this is still an incomplete build, there are many other features that have not been docked or have been docked but have not been used.
An interesting feature is that Widgets have been brought back by Microsoft to Windows 11. They are designed in a slide-out format, where users will be able to quickly see breaking news, weather and other content.
However, on the leaked version, most of them do not work properly.
At first glance, Windows 11 (at least through this build) is not too different from Windows 10. Both operating systems share the same platform and design orientation, the jump from Windows 10 to Windows 11 will not be a radical overhaul like from Windows XP to Windows 7 or from Windows 7 to 10. More details about Windows 11, of course, we will have to wait until Microsoft officially announces the operating system. this.
Windows 11 is expected to be announced at the event on June 24. As usual, Insider users will get to experience this operating system first, while general users will have to wait until the end of the year.
Before this leak, Microsoft announced that it would stop supporting Windows 10 in 2025, 10 years since this operating system officially appeared. Therefore, there is plenty of time for you to consider whether to upgrade to Windows 11.
Even the Taskbar is centered so apps appear in the center of the screen, where your eyes naturally look. And that icon is then paired with a new search icon, showing a floating search bar, instead of a centered box like in current versions of Windows.
Again, this helps put the things that matter most to you front and center – just like MacOS or Chrome OS – and it’s pretty neat.
2. New animated motion
Remember the “aero” in Windows Vista and Windows 7? Windows has a glass-like effect behind them, and you can see a fancy image when you stack your apps and programs. This is also present in Windows 10, but Microsoft has softened it up a bit to make it more subtle. Well, that’s back in Windows 11 and it’s never been so pretty.
Now, there are a lot of different animations in Windows 11. Moving Windows around your screen to multitask will show a glassy blur in front of your wallpaper.
And tapping the top of the window with your finger brings up the new window border, helping you understand where it’s going.
But that’s not all. Open and close apps, maximize and minimize windows – all with new animations. Applications now minimize when they move to the Taskbar.
They also have an effect as they unfold from the inside if you click the zoom in button. It’s a new feeling compared to the old Windows.
3. A New Way to Multitask with Windows
One of the most common things people use in Windows are split-screen applications. In Windows 11, Microsoft seems to have added a “groups” feature. If you hover over the maximize button, you’ll see six ways you can pair your active windows with all other open windows. You can then click a button and create a group and Windows 11 will remember that combination.
This is pretty cool. This feature is actually part of Fancy Zones, part of Power Toys. The software is made by Microsoft and allows you to tile windows in a custom layout.
Looks like Microsoft has finally included that software in Windows without any additional downloads. And it’s really intuitive to use with no learning curve.
