Microsoft's Windows upgrade brings too few updates

In 2015, Microsoft claimed that Windows 10 will be the last operating system of Windows, and all the resulting updates will be carried out under the umbrella of Windows 10. Shockingly, Microsoft delivered another Windows variant, Windows 11, on October 5, 2021. This update is free for all Windows 10 clients, but there are some caveats. Windows 11 brings a new layer of drawing to the Windows UI, while also presenting a new workspace atmosphere. When we investigated Microsoft's recent Windows product line cycle, there was a lot of discussion about the most recent Windows version.

Although Windows 11 is free for some Windows 10 clients, this version of Windows has a transitional experience. Not all workspaces and workstations can choose to use Windows 11, because this update comes with essentials, which may prevent many PCs from being updated. A 64-bit processor, no less than 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of additional space are essentials this time, but the prerequisites of the TPM (Trusted Platform Module) 2.0 module will make many people confused. There is no doubt that later PCs will have this TPM module, but many more mature and uniquely designed PCs may not. PCs running more sophisticated CPUs, in most cases Intel’s seventh-generation and more mature CPUs, are locked out of the update, while Windows 11, which is basically in its infancy, cannot perform well due to scheduler issues. Used in conjunction with AMD CPU. Many workarounds for these prerequisites are not official and may keep you away from future updates. Microsoft also deleted nearby client profiles for the Windows 11 home client, restricting individuals from interacting with the Web-based Microsoft account, which is used for information classification and telemetry for all expectations and purposes. Windows 11 may be free, but you need to pay for information.

Compared to Windows 10, Windows 11 is not completely unique. In addition to the new drawing layer and some elements, the working framework maintains the core practicality of Windows 10 to a large extent. On the surface, Windows has now adjusted the corners, and the taskbar symbol and the start menu have been moved to the middle. One of the most bumpy experiences for me is getting used to the focused "Start" menu. Although the new start menu looks pleasant, with stuck apps at the top, and ongoing logging below, the inconsistent development of the start button is an errand. In Windows 10 and previous versions of Windows, the adjusted start menu on the left has been in a similar position as usual. In Windows 11, the menu is focused, and the expansion of new symbols usually drives the symbols between each other on the focus plane. I have to check the taskbar and find where the symbol is moving before I can click on it. Leaving the start button on the side and moving the application symbol to the middle would be a better plan choice. Fortunately, customers can solve this problem by realigning all symbols to one side.

The start menu has a new look. Unlike longer pop-up windows, the new menu has a broader feel, with a search bar at the top, followed by fixed applications and recent files. The new start menu looks fresh and beautiful; fixed applications and recent files have a beautiful long search bar at the top. Although the simplified start menu is a visual upgrade to Windows 10, it is simpler and has no dynamic tiles or dynamic content. Even the context menu of the taskbar has been simplified, because right-clicking on the bar will only produce one result and remove basic options such as task manager or toolbar. Oh, you can’t move the taskbar at all in Windows 11—the bottom is the only option.

New design brought by Windows 11

The "Settings" menu has also undergone a major update. It currently displays a bound screen with all the options on the left and the clear content of the menu on the right. The document supervisor has received a similar visual upgrade, while the usefulness of the center remains the same as before. The new symbol requires a visual offset, assigning various shades to each client organizer (such as downloads and reports).

Performing various tasks and multiscreen support are probably the most attractive highlights of the new window. Despite some whimsical designs, the Snap format has received a major upgrade through a simple grid design. Assuming you go to a full-screen application, these stacked collections will also appear as a collection window in the taskbar. In fact, even windows organized on external screens will shrink normally and clearly when you stop the presentation. Decided to reinsert them and use all the profits for the way you leave them. Using multiscreen arrangements in Windows has always been a problem, but the new additions in Windows 11 make them easier to use.

For gamers, Windows 11 brings Auto HDR support, which is a component that has been pulled along with the progress of the Xbox Series X control center. Auto HDR allows games that have a sudden surge in demand for DirectX 11 and above to naturally expand to the powerful range of presentation, so that even games without built-in HDR support can redesign HDR rendering on Windows 11. DirectStorage is one of them. More elements focus on gamers. The game can stack graphics files and calculations directly on the illustration card instead of passing through the CPU funnel; eliminating this redundant method will make the game experience smoother, while also eliminating Stacking time. The game needs help with DirectStorage, because it may, today, no game can help that element. In terms of natural execution, the game is actually like Windows 10 in the rough shell of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, F1 2021 and Forza Horizon 4.

Windows 11 will also support native Android applications, although not from the Google Play store but from the Amazon store (may not include all Android applications). This element does not yet exist in Windows 11, but should be further implemented in the update cycle. Windows 11 is not without its flaws: the work frame freezes from time to time, the application crashes from time to time (Settings and Pioneer), and at a certain point, basic highlights like the emoji console do not work properly.


Windows 11 has its problems, should you upgrade without paying attention to these problems? I will say no. Windows 11 brings too few updates and is not a major generation upgrade. Most of the central purpose of the frame is the same as before, just a new paint layer and some designs like a small tool board. Although the framework provides a more advanced and more focused planning language, Windows 11 can be used as an update to Windows 10 rather than an upgrade. What's more, the configuration requirements required for the upgrade also give many people a headache. Every new element in Windows 11 feels like an auxiliary update to Windows 10.
