What Is New In Windows 11?
We have answered to the most frequent questions about Windows 11 that you should know.
Microsoft’s recently scheduled a virtual event for Jun 24, subtitled ‘Join us to see what’s next for Windows. The event is set to take place at 11 am ET/4 pm BST/5 pm CET, with presentations from both Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Chief Product Officer Panos Panay. However, the leak of Windows 11 testing ISO image has revealed many things about the feature, gesture, appearance, and many more things. The official date is yet to announce.
Microsoft may keep the upgrades available for free for a certain time as like Windows 10. But, we don’t have any clue about that. Based on the current pricing kept for the Windows 10 upgrade. We might guess that Microsoft will make their users pay some price to upgrade their Windows 10 to Windows 11. If you are in plan to buy any Windows Desktop/Laptop, you might see Windows 11 running on the new devices soon.
1. Windows 10 Home – £119.99/US$139
2. Windows 10 Pro – £219.99/US$199.99
3. Windows 10 Pro for Workstations – £339/US$309
To answer the Windows 11 system requirement. Microsoft will most likely keep the same as Windows 10s’. That means most of the Windows 10 running devices will be compatible to run Windows 11 either. However, Microsoft can make use of this opportunity to withdraw the support of Windows 11 from the old hardware on which Windows 10 is struggling to run.

It is very early to answer what is new in Windows 11. By looking at its first gesture, we can say that Microsoft has done a lot of changes on the desktop, background wallpapers, folder icons, taskbar, start menu, app search, Windows logo, and other GUI elements. You can also say that Microsoft has added new animations, sounds, touch controls, new widgets to its new Windows 11. In addition to these, you can also see the upgraded Action Center, rounded corners, and an entirely new way of handling multitask operations.
During the installation process, we didn’t notice any specific changes made except the Windows Logo. All the appearance, options, and installation procedure have remained the same as in Windows 10. However, we have seen the changes in the Windows setup wizard. Microsoft has made the setup wizard better than Windows 10. We have seen a clean and simple GUI on the setup wizard. One noticeable change is that Cortana has been removed from the setup wizard in windows 11.
We have seen many changes in GUI elements, but we haven’t seen the major changes in its core features and functions. We have to wait until the official announcement is made on the event, which is happening on Jun 24, 2021, at 11 am ET/4 pm BST/5 pm CET to see what is new in Windows 11.
