New Windows 11 Features

Redesigned User Interface: Windows 11 introduces a new centered Start menu and taskbar, giving it a more modern and simplified look. The Start menu includes pinned apps, recent files, and a search bar, while the taskbar is centered by default, although it can be moved to the left if desired.

New Start Menu: The Start menu in Windows 11 features a simplified design with a grid of icons, and the Live Tiles from Windows 10 have been removed. It provides quick access to recently used apps, recommended files, and a customizable list of apps.

Enhanced Snap Layouts and Snap Groups: Windows 11 introduces improved window management with Snap Layouts and Snap Groups. Snap Layouts allow users to quickly organize and snap windows into predefined layouts on the screen, while Snap Groups remember the arrangement of apps when you switch between tasks.

Microsoft Store Redesign: The Microsoft Store in Windows 11 has been completely redesigned to offer a better user experience. It features a new layout, improved app curation, and includes support for a wider range of apps, including Win32, PWA, and Android apps via the Microsoft Store.

Gaming Enhancements: Windows 11 includes several gaming enhancements, such as DirectStorage, which allows for faster loading times, Auto HDR for improved visuals, and support for Xbox Game Pass directly integrated into the Xbox app.

Virtual Desktops and Multitasking: Virtual Desktops have been improved in Windows 11, allowing users to create and manage multiple desktops for better multitasking. The Task View feature has been redesigned and now includes a new feature called "Desktops Snap Assist," which helps users easily switch between apps across different desktops.

Performance and Security Improvements: Windows 11 brings various performance optimizations, including faster wake times, improved power efficiency, and better overall system performance. It also includes enhanced security features like secure boot, hardware-based isolation for protecting sensitive data, and improved Windows Hello biometric authentication.
