Serious Windows users have long observed an unfortunate trend: every version of Windows has disappointed in recent years. Windows 95 is an exception, and its performance is quite good. Windows 98 is not a good system overall, but Windows 98 SE makes things better. Windows Me is so bad, most people have never even used this system. Windows XP is obviously the most legendary and classic system. Windows Vista is too bad. Windows 7 is almost perfect, but there are some minor issues. Windows 8...a system that most people have never used before, so I won’t go into details.

Windows 10 is pretty good. However, now windows11 is here. There is no doubt that Windows 11 has two points. Microsoft really needs to iterate the system to improve system security and user experience. But this does not mean that Windows 11 will be suitable for everyone.

In fact, all Windows 11 users have to face a series of bad experiences. There are eight here.

Changing the default browser is like a bad game of whack-a-mole

Microsoft wants all of us to use Edge. Most users think Edge is an excellent browser. But Windows makes his diet look a bit ugly through complex changes to the default browser operation. If you don't want to use Microsoft Edge, you need to map the different file names one-to-one. Although, Microsoft issued a related announcement not long ago, stating that it will be convenient to change the default browser in subsequent version updates.

Windows 11 incorrectly replace default apps

If you want to roll back the WINDOWS 11 upgrade, you only have ten days.

Microsoft only gives you ten days to resume the upgrade. So, in other words, you must know that you might want to resume the installation before the end of 10 days in order to decide to give yourself 60 days to evaluate it. However, if you do not plan to return early and find that you want to return on the 12th day, please reinstall the system!

Suppose you just want to use the computer in your own way. Maybe you don’t want to have to register and log in to Microsoft every time you want to use your machine. Perhaps you don't want (or can't have) a continuous online connection. Maybe you don’t want the Microsoft cloud to manage your every move.

Windows 11 Home Edition does not allow you to set up a local account. Windows 10 makes it very difficult, but if you know where to look, you can still find this setting. But what about Windows 11? For Windows 11, you must log in to Microsoft before you can start working.

Of course, you can also solve this problem by spending more money on Windows 11 Pro.

No "open file location"

In Windows 10, there used to be a context menu option called "Open File Location". If you need a file and perform a search, you can right-click the file found in the search result field and select Open file location. This will not only put you in the folder that contains the file, it will also select the file. It is fast, simple, efficient, and very useful when moving and managing files.

This option is not available in versions prior to Windows 11. Fortunately, Microsoft fixed this problem in time, and now this lovely feature is back in our context menu.

Setup and control panel room

Let us make it clear here. For the quarter ended June 30, 2021, Microsoft brought in revenue of $46.2 billion, a year-on-year increase of 21%. Total annual revenue exceeds 121 billion U.S. dollars.

So, with so much money, do you think it is possible for the company to provide a consistent setting interface for its flagship operating system? No! No! Still none!

Over the years, Microsoft has forced users to endure the ugly mashup of the settings interface and the control panel interface. Windows 10 came out in 2015, this problem has existed for more than six years, and the current version of Windows 11 still has this problem. Fortunately, Microsoft released the Windows 11 closed beta preview Build 22523, indicating that they will gradually ban the control panel.

Simplified context menu cuts out useful functions

Too complicated choices affect the user experience. Having too many options on things such as context menus can be a burden for novice users. But Windows 11 is a powerful operating system; adding too many features under the "Show More Options" menu can greatly affect the user experience.

Windows 11 users who want to circumvent this restriction can do so by cracking the registry. Most importantly, Microsoft has reduced intuitive choices and made it more difficult to get commonly used features. This is bad news for many long-term Windows users. Microsoft has stated that it will fix this problem in a future update, see: Microsoft is optimizing the right-click menu of Windows 11.

Search bar is missing

This is another feature that is convenient in Windows 10 but requires an extra click in Windows 11. The search bar that was once on the taskbar has disappeared. This completely violates the premise that all Windows 11 user interface changes are designed to improve usability for novices. But for novices, what could be easier than displaying a "Type here to search" field next to the "Start" icon?

Windows11 search function

In Windows 11, this has passed. After clicking the Windows icon, a search field will appear. Doesn’t this assume that the user knows where to look? Take away obvious searches from new users?

The entire hardware compatibility issue

Since the announcement of the new operating system, we have encountered Windows 11 hardware issues many times.

I personally think that when it comes to setting stricter minimum hardware requirements, Microsoft does not have much choice. By requiring modern Windows users to use hardware that helps mitigate cyberattacks, Microsoft is helping to strengthen PCs around the world.

But this does not make the minimum requirements easier to absorb. Millions of machines will still use one or older operating systems. Since the support windows for those older operating systems have been closed or are about to close, these vulnerable machines are unlikely to be updated with more secure code.
