CNET 25 June, 2021 - 03:18am

It's official: Windows 11 is on the way. At a virtual event on Thursday, Microsoft unveiled "the next generation of Windows," with big changes to the longstanding operating system, including its first name change in six years. The update comes shortly after Microsoft rolled out the latest version of the Windows 10 operating system, the Windows 10 May 2021 update (also known as version 21H1). 

Windows 11 includes a slew of new features, including the ability to download and run Android apps on your Windows PC, and updates to Microsoft Teams, the Start menu, and the overall look of the software, which is more clean and Mac-like in design. 

Here's every detail we know so far about Windows 11, including price, compatibility, release date, how to download, new features and more. 

Stay current on the latest Microsoft news, plus reviews and advice on Windows PCs.

Here are a few of the standout new features in Windows 11:

Images of Windows 11 were leaked about a week before the event, so we had an idea of some of these features ahead of time. 

Microsoft Teams will get integrated directly into the Windows 11 taskbar, which is now centered in the display. 

Windows 11 will be available as an early beta download next week, and as a public beta in July. It will begin rolling out to all compatible PCs and new PCs around the holiday season

To see if your current Windows 10 PC is eligible for the free upgrade to Windows 11, visit Windows.com to download the PC Health Check app, the post said. And if you buy a new PC between now and the general release, that computer will also be eligible for the free upgrade. 

You can use a tool on Microsoft's website to see if your PC will be eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 11. 

Once Windows 11 becomes generally available around the holidays, you'll download it the same way you would with any new version of Windows. Most users will go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update, and clicking Check for Updates. If available, you'll see Feature update to Windows 11. Click Download and install. (Here's more information on how to download Windows 11. If you haven't yet upgraded to Windows 10, you may still be able to download Windows 10 free, too -- here's how.) 

If you're already a Windows 10 user, Windows 11 will appear as a free upgrade to your machine

Microsoft has just announced Windows 11 as the next successor to Windows 10. But, when can you get it and do you have to upgrade?

There are likely a few answers. Here is why.

Microsoft has announced that starting the week of June 28 it begin to share an early build of Windows 11 to the Windows Insider Program.

As expected, the release goes first to the Windows Insider Dev Channel. Later, it will migrate to Beta and then finally Release Preview towards the fall.

There will be exceptions to which PCs can join the Windows 11 Insider Dev Channel, as Microsoft notes:

All Windows Insiders who have already been installing builds from the Dev Channel on their PCs up through June 24, 2021 will be allowed to continue installing Windows 11 Insider Preview builds even if their PC does not meet the minimum hardware requirements. Insiders with PCs already in the Dev Channel have been installing and giving feedback on builds with Windows 11 features since last year.

Microsoft also comments about the Beta channel:

In preparation for releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview builds to the Beta Channel later this summer, we are moving PCs that do not meet the hardware requirements for Windows 11 in the Beta Channel to the Release Preview Channel. Some of these PCs may be able to move back to the Beta Channel, but at their own risk. See the above chart for details.

In other words, there are a lot of cavets, so make sure to read Microsoft's full post detailing the how the Insider program will work.

The Windows 11 update is a free upgrade for all Windows 10 users and is optional.

No final date has been given for the release of Windows 11, but October is a good rule of thumb (and it was even spotted in the Windows 11 presentation). Indeed, October 6th (Wednesday) could be the actual official day, but we'll have to wait and see.

Windows 11 will be available through a free upgrade for eligible Windows 10 PCs and on new PCs beginning this holiday. To check if your current Windows 10 PC is eligible for the free upgrade to Windows 11, visit Windows.com to download the PC Health Check app.

Windows 11 is going to be one of the biggest releases for Windows in over a decade. While the recent leak gives us a good look at what to expect, there are still many questions and unknown details. These will be revealed in the coming weeks and months as Microsoft officially discloses the OS, which we'll be covering in great detail.

Windows 11 first impressions: Our initial thoughts on using Microsoft's new OS

Pocket-lint 25 June, 2021 - 03:18am

Like many others, we downloaded it, installed it on our beta machine (a Core i5 Surface Laptop 2) and here are our first impressions, which we've now further updated with more information. 

While Microsoft will pitch Windows 11 as a fully marketed full new version of Windows, the simple fact is that it’s a design tweak to the existing operating system – it’s most definitely not a revolution. In that sense, it’s unusual for a new version of Windows; 98 to XP or XP to Vista this is not.

This shows in the way that Windows 11 works since it’s very stable and all our apps work without issue. A new version of Windows will drive PC sales, and it's probably this - pressure from Microsoft's partners - that has driven the move to a wholly new version. 

Also, some of the design tweaks are quite a change, so it's reasonable to switch the name. 

The most striking change is to the Start menu, which is now much more of an app/recent file launcher than an attempt to show you recent news or stock updates which the Windows 8 Start screen and the Windows 10 Start menu certainly tried.

In many ways, it's a simpler approach as most people will see all of their most recent apps and oft-used files right in front of them. 

The bottom section of the menu is ‘Recommended’ stuff which will basically gather together anything you’ve recently saved, used or installed. 'All apps' and 'More' arrows enable you to dive deeper should you need to. 

Many app icons have been refreshed as part of a broader design rethink, often to update ancient designs. But dive deep enough and the same underlying Windowsness is still there. Something like Device Manager could still be whipped out of Windows 95. 

Does this matter? Probably not. A small minority of users ever touch this stuff. The Settings app has become continually more powerful since its introduction in Windows 8 and you no longer need to ever access the old Control Panel unless you are changing something deep within the OS. 

It does feel a little odd to have them centred because we naturally move our cursor to the bottom left to open the Start menu. Again, you can search using the dedicated icon in the taskbar or the Start menu and as you'd expect you can hit the Windows key and start typing to search. 

Task View is still present and correct as is previous versions’ super window snapping. However, there are more options for snapping now thanks to a new dropdown menu in each window like that pictured below. This enables you to more rapidly set up a multi-window desktop. 

Ours is filled with stories from Microsoft News at present and you can click on the stories and say what you like or remove various news sources. Clicking widgets open the relevant story in Microsoft Edge.

Presumably, this bar will be more powerful as time goes on, but you can control what’s in it right away – not least by managing your interests on your Microsoft Account. 

It's worth noting that many features of Windows 11 might change, of course, as Windows 11 nears launch. Despite it working very well, this operating system clearly wasn’t meant to be installed yet – it has confused Windows Update no end which is still suggesting a Windows 10 insider preview build for us.

Windows Update gives us a little bit of an insight into some internal jargon though – a system update refers to Windows 11 as Windows 10 Version Next.

Some things – like the Microsoft Store – are apparently going to be updated in Windows 11 but it looks exactly the same here. But our early impressions are great – it’s stable, looks good and is a step on from Windows 10, even if it’s a baby step rather than a giant leap.

Windows 11 is real and Microsoft hasn't announced yet

Texasnewstoday.com 25 June, 2021 - 03:18am

You can’t actually download the operating system yourself, but videos are already starting to appear from well-known tech sites such as our sister site, Windows Central, where we downloaded and tried a new OS.

At first glance, this is a complete rework of the Windows UI, with the new taskbar making the most immediate and noticeable difference. It looks like macOS with a Windows twist, and most of the icons, including the start button, are tapped in the center of the taskbar. Fortunately, just like in Windows 10, you can go to Settings and move all taskbar buttons to the left side of the taskbar.

Many UI elements, such as volume lockers and notification displays, look much like Windows 10, but it’s possible that a new version of these elements is still under development. But the animations and movements look much smoother.

I don’t know when Windows 11 will actually be announced, but it’s clear that Microsoft will announce it soon after it’s released. Redmond’s company cannot avoid it. From the bag.

Everything We Know About Windows 11

Gizmodo Australia 25 June, 2021 - 03:18am

Microsoft had intended to bring Windows 10X to market this year but it was indefinitely postponed and many of its features have been rolled into this next version of Windows, which is officially called Windows 11.

After early builds of the software leaked onto the internet, Microsoft fans have been waiting to see what exactly Windows 11 will entail. The tech giant revealed its new operating software at an official event on June 25.

Here’s everything we now know about Windows 11.

As leaks revealed, a big design change is coming to Windows 11.

The new design is modern and fresh introducing rounded corners on windows and a transparent glass look to their design. There a range of new themes on offer too, including multiple variations of dark mode.

Microsoft has also made the decision to move the Start Menu to the centre of the console rather than keeping it to the side – a feature some are not too happy with.

The menu also features a new embedded search bar and cloud power to bring up a list of recommended documents and apps.

Split and multi-views are also made easier by selecting the maximise button in any app window, which will bring up a panel of options for you to arrange your apps to be viewable on-screen all at once. This is what Microsoft is calling ‘Snap Layouts‘.

It’s also possible to fully customise your different desktops in Windows 11 with assigned wallpapers, apps and shortcuts so you can compartmentalises your workspace for different functions.

As expected, Windows 11 is also introducing widgets in a similar style to MacOS. Clicking a button on the taskbar will bring out a panel that you can customise with different widgets like weather, news, calendars etc.

Communication is more important than ever following the pandemic and Microsoft has spent a lot of time upgrading Microsoft Teams to compete.

Windows 11 will allow cross-platform messaging integration for text chat, voice chat and video calls.

Given its focus on Teams, Microsoft has also done away with other messaging apps like Skype, which will no longer be pre-installed.

For those who utilise Windows 11 on a tablet or two-in-one device like a Surface Pro, Microsoft has implemented some new changes.

The process of switching from desktop to tablet mode will be smoother with the UI automatically changing as soon as you detach the keyboard on a device like a Surface. The same goes for if you rotate your device.

Tablet touch keyboards have also been given an upgrade with voice typing and haptics for styluses.

The App Store on Windows 11 has undergone a redesign with one of its best new features targeting app developers. Microsoft will let developers choose their payment platform and system which will allow them to keep 100% of their revenue.

Windows 11 will also integrate Android and Amazon apps giving easier access to things like TikTok and Kindle.

Microsoft has spent a lot of time cultivating the console side of gaming with the next-gen Xbox, but it hasn’t forgotten about PC players.

Windows 11 takes some of the best features from Xbox and brings them over to PC. Auto HDR looks to instantly improve the lighting and colour of games and Direct Storage is designed to speed up loading times and improve performance.

Xbox Game Pass will also be directly built into Windows 11 giving users cloud-saving, crossplay and access to thousands of cloud games with a monthly subscription.

Not all devices are created equal so if you’re looking to install the new Windows OS you’ll want to make sure your computer can run it.

Here are the minimum system requirements:

You can check if your system is compatible with Windows 11 on Microsoft’s website.

The good news is that Windows 11 will come as a free update for anyone with a Windows 10 PC.

When it comes to buying Windows 11 outright, Microsoft is yet to release pricing.

We may not have a solid release date but we do know Windows 11 will release later this year in the ‘holiday season’.

If you’re not keen on waiting there is a way to get your hands on Windows 11 before everyone else via the Windows Insider Program.
