Newsdelivers.com – After releasing the Microsoft 10 version in 2015, Microsoft is now ready to launch the latest Microsoft 11 version on October 5, 2021. When this new version is released, users can upgrade their existing compatible PC to Windows 11 and purchase a new PC with a pre-installed operating system.
Regardless of whether the user wants to test Windows 11 or update to Windows 11 on October 5, the user must meet the specified system requirements. Users should also ensure that they have an 8th generation Intel processor or AMD Ryzen 2000 or later and a PC with a TPM 2.0 chip. If users have a seventh-generation Intel processor, they can also run Windows 11.
With the launch of Microsoft version 11, users will enjoy all new experiences. Starting from the appearance, animation, sound, speed, security, to the flexibility in playing the game. Compiled by brilio.net from various sources, Monday (27/9), these are 5 new features of Microsoft 11 that will give a fresh impression and feel.
1. Visuals for the Taskbar and Start menu are better.

Apparently this update has been rumored before and became a reality. The floating, centered Start menu along with the centralized taskbar are the two most visible new elements in Windows 11. These two updates give Windows a drastic new feel by removing Live Tiles and adopting a more touch-friendly design.
Instead of Live Tiles, users have standard icons that link to their apps and can “pin” for their own convenience. Microsoft even recently changed the Windows 11 Start menu to bring back the search box.
In addition to the Start menu, rounded corners and menus throughout Windows 11 will also appear new, as will the Action Center with a redesigned look that focuses on cleaner sliders and rounded buttons. Microsoft even changed the windowing system in Windows 11 so that hovering over the maximize icon will show a new way to divide apps for multitasking.
Furthermore, there is also a feature known as Snap Layouts, where Windows 11 will remember the work the user did and save it to the taskbar as a group for faster access. More than this, Microsoft is changing the way Windows docks with monitors. Now, when the user returns to Windows 11 on the big screen, Windows remembers the layout of the user’s applications and projects and keeps them running as is.
2. New animations, sounds and widgets.
To make it look smoother and feel more natural, animations throughout Windows 11 have been updated. This update is most noticeable when the user clicks on the Start menu or minimizes and closes the window. The animations look and feel fluid, unlike anything users have ever seen on a mobile operating system.
Like the old Windows Vista, Windows 11 brings back a new “widgets” section. This widget functions somewhat as a News and Interests feature in Windows 10. When users click on the widget icon on the taskbar, they will see things like weather, news headlines, stocks, sports scores, and much more.
Microsoft itself says that this widget is powered by artificial intelligence (AI) that serves users with regulated content. Users can also choose the topics they want to follow, support local content creators by tipping them directly in the feed, and also rearrange widgets however they like.
3. The new Microsoft Store with Android applications on Windows.
Another big feature that is part of the upcoming October 5 release is the new Microsoft Store. Users can finally run Android applications through the Amazon App Store. Microsoft revealed that it is still working on “the journey of bringing Android apps to Windows 11 through collaboration with Amazon and Intel, with previews for Windows Insiders over the coming months.” Keep in mind, this new update cannot be confirmed whether or not it can be used on October 5th.
Apart from the Android apps in the store, Microsoft also mentioned some updates on the Windows side so that users will be able to find Win32, UWP, and PWA apps in the store, including apps like Google Chrome. Disney+ and the Adobe Creative Cloud suite are also examples that Microsoft mentions.
4. Gamers can be more flexible.
Finally, Microsoft announced an update for games in Windows 11. This update is focused on “superior graphics, incredible speed, and a large selection of games” so that users can freely take advantage of this new feature.
In the update, Microsoft mentions the existence of automatic HDR which will update the colors and appearance of the game to make it look more alive. No changes are required on the part of the user or by the developer, and everything will be automatic in games like Skyrim. With this feature, which is the same as on the Xbox Series X and S, games will load from the graphics card without burdening the computer’s processor. This means faster load times.
An update to the Xbox Gaming App later this year will bring Xbox Cloud Gaming to Windows 11 PCs via streaming over the internet to use services like Google Stadia and Apple Arcade.
5. Improved touch screen.
Windows 11 also brings a new experience in terms of screen touch. The dedicated tablet mode of Windows 10 is now deprecated and Microsoft has replaced it with gestures and other features. This means users should notice that icons and squares are easier to touch with a finger.
Window animations are also clearer to show where things are moving. The touch keyboard has also been improved, so users can swipe it with their fingers and use the spacebar as a trackpad. As for gestures, users can use three or four fingers to swipe up and down on Windows to minimize and close windows.
Microsoft even added haptics to tablet mode. When using the pen, users will feel vibrations and hear more sounds when editing or sketching.
