Windows 11 OS Teased: UI, Start Menu, and More

The new Windows 11 OS has surfaced online.

The imminent Windows 11 OS from Microsoft has been leaked online today. The full Windows 11 OS has emerged online, complete with a new user interface, Start menu, and much more after photos and videos were initially released on the Chinese portal Baidu.

The new Windows 11 Start menu and user interface is quite similar to those present in Windows 10X. Microsoft was working on improving Windows more user-friendly for dual-screen computers before abandoning the project in favor of Windows 11.

The most noticeable visual modifications may be noticed along the taskbar. The program icons have been centered, the tray area has been freshened up and a new Start button and menu have been added.

This new Start menu is a simpler version of the one seen in Windows 10, but it does not have Live Tiles. However, pinnable applications, recently used files, and the option to swiftly shut down or restart Windows 11 devices are included. It’s a lot more minimalistic than, what’s available in Windows 10 right now.

If you don’t want the app icons and Start menu to be centered, you simply shift them all to the left-hand side. When combined with the existing dark mode, Windows 11 appears to be a more polished version of Windows 10 rather than something drastically new.

Microsoft has also used rounded edges in Windows 11. These may be found in context menus, as well as surrounding applications and the File Explorer. The Start menu has curved sides as well. Because this is a leaked early version of Windows 11, not everything is currently included.

We can expect more modifications to the built-in programs in Windows 11, although the most of them do not appear to be available yet. However, a major portion of the operating system appears to be ready, so we may anticipate a beta of this to emerge soon for Windows Insiders to test.

We could also see a new icon in the Windows 11 taskbar named Widgets. According to rumours, Microsoft is reintroducing Windows Widgets, and this early version seems to feature a few.

The widgets aren’t fully loaded in the OS because this is obviously a very early preview of Windows 11, but they’re meant to slide out and give easy access to news, weather, and other digital content.

Windows 11 also features new snap controls, which can be accessed using the maximize button in any app. They are advanced counterparts of the operating system’s long-standing cascading windows capability. You may easily snap windows side by side or arrange them on your desktop in segments.

Microsoft has introduced a fresh setup experience in Windows 11. It’s quite similar to Windows 10X in that it takes users with new hardware or those upgrading to Windows 11 through a series of configuration procedures. This out-of-the-box experience also features a new Windows 11 launch sound, which plays on every boot.

Microsoft has been dropping clues that Windows 11 would be released soon. On June 24th, the tech giant will host a special Windows event to introduce its new operating system. The event begins at 11 a.m. ET, and the event invite has a window that casts a shadow with a number 11 shape.

For months, Microsoft executives have teased an announcement about the “next generation of Windows,” and this leak now confirms that Windows 11 will be announced later this month.
