9 Newest Features Of Windows 11
Windows 11, the new operating system by Microsoft, is all set to take over the market. The old versions of Windows are still working, but it might be time for an upgrade. Now all those users who were reluctant to get their hands on the new operating system can breathe easily. With Windows 11, they can finally get rid of old and sluggish machines and move on with a brand-new operating system that will give their computers a new lease of life.
Here are some of the features:
1. Improved OneDrive
OneDrive is a new feature that allows you to access all your files in the cloud without having to download them. This can save space on your device and make it easier for you to use OneDrive from anywhere, even when offline.
You can access OneDrive files from File Explorer, which means you won’t have to worry about remembering or typing their full pathnames anymore. When viewing a folder or file that is stored in this way, Windows 11 will automatically display its contents within an icon or thumbnail preview window depending on what kind of app is displaying it.
If there are multiple folders with this same name but different paths and therefore different filenames, then each one will be displayed as separate icons instead of just one big icon representing all of them together; this makes finding specific types more intuitive because they are easier to distinguish visually through color-coding alone.
2. Task manager
Task Manager is a utility that allows users to manage processes and applications installed on their computers. The main purpose of this tool is to provide real-time information about the running, stopped, and attached processes in your system.
With Windows 10 version 1607 (Build 10586), Microsoft replaced Task Manager with Performance Monitor as they had done with File Explorer and Command Prompt before. This can be done by opening Task Manager by pressing CTRL+Shift+ESC key combination.
The Timeline feature is a powerful tool that allows you to go back in time and see what you were doing at any given moment. It is like a version of the cloud, but here it is all available on your desktop computer or laptop.
The feature also shows you all of your files and documents, the ones, which have been, opened up since the last time they were accessed. This can be useful if you need to find an old document that was never deleted from your hard drive.
4. Reintroduced start menu
The new Start menu has a search box and a list of recent apps, which you can pin, but the most important thing to know about the new Start menu is that it allows you to customize how it looks by choosing which tiles will show up on your screen.
You can also resize the Start button so that it takes up less space on your screen when open; this is useful if you have multiple monitors or want an extra bit of real estate for other programs or windows.
5. Unified notifications & volume control
The unified notifications feature allows you to view, manage and respond to notifications across all your devices.
6. Cleaner, simplified settings UI
The new Settings menu is a cleaner, more streamlined experience than the old one. It is easier to find what you need and uses, with all of your settings listed in one place. You can also see a preview of each set’s configuration before making changes, no more digging through multiple menus or clicking on links to get there.
The Settings menu is more powerful and efficient than ever before, too. It allows you to be able to customize how Windows looks by choosing from several different themes, adjusting how often Windows checks for updates automatically, turn off notifications about battery life if desired…all without leaving this menu.
The new Settings UI has been designed with privacy in mind; everything you change here stays private unless you choose otherwise.
7. Your Phone App
Your Phone app is a great way to access your phone from your PC. You can use it to send photos and messages, access your apps, and much more.
You can also use the Your Phone app to remote control presentations you are giving with a webcam on your computer screen.
8. Updated clipboard experience
The updated clipboard experience in Windows 11 allows you to copy, paste. You can also copy multiple items at once by pressing Ctrl+C on your keyboard.
9. Microsoft Edge improvements
Microsoft Edge is faster and more secure than Internet Explorer, with an all-new reading mode for those who want to read websites without distractions.
Edge also has better tab management, so you can easily view multiple tabs at once and switch between them quickly. In addition, it has an improved web engine that uses machine learning to improve page-rendering performance across sites.
Microsoft has a lot of features and improvements coming to Windows 11 that will make it even more useful for users.
