Speaking of the impact of the Windows operating system on the world, Microsoft Chief Product Officer Panos Panay said: "Windows has always been the stage for world innovation. The web was born and thrived on Windows. Many of us wrote our first emails here, played the first PC game, wrote the first line of code. Windows is where people create, connect, learn, and achieve, and today it’s a platform that more than a billion people rely on.” “PC happened powerfully. The transformation from a practical and functional thing to a personal and emotional thing.”

Recently, Windows 11 is pushing a new round of updates. This time, the Alt+Tab window switching interface has been changed, and there is more and more apple flavor.

Before this, after pressing the Alt+Tab shortcut in Windows 11, the effect of a full-screen frosted glass background and stacked tabs would be displayed.


In the first major version update, codenamed "Sun Valley 2", this interface will change.

Starting with Windows 11 Build 22562, after pressing Alt+Tab, it is no longer a full-screen display, but a set of application thumbnails arranged horizontally, displayed in the center of the screen, very similar to Apple's macOS, press and hold Alt and click Tab repeatedly Naturally, it can be cycled through.

Also, the background blur effect is now more prominent.

Microsoft has confirmed that this new design is indeed being developed, but only some users participating in the closed beta can experience it.

As for whether Windows 11 is becoming more "Apple-like", is it good or bad? The answer may be benevolent to see benevolence and wise to see wisdom. Some people will say that Windows and Apple are becoming more and more similar, which leads to the homogenization of future operating systems and the lack of collision of technology; while some people say that technology is originally based on the advantages of hundreds of schools. But no matter which point of view you prefer, the only constant is that we all hope that technology companies can make excellent products for consumers to use, not upgrade for the sake of upgrading.
