5 highlights not to be missed on Windows 11

Windows 11 is an operating system update that is not as exciting as what people expect, but there are still features that people should not ignore.

New Design and Start Menu

The new design of Windows 11 isn't a drastic overhaul but there are a bunch of changes that those upgrading from Windows 10 will notice.

The new-style Start Menu system is very reminiscent of macOS.

Since most of Windows users' time is spent on apps, the most notable change to the Windows 11 UI is the new Start Menu. The first thing users notice is that the Live Tiles are now gone. The new Start Menu in Windows 11 basically looks like a smartphone operating system launcher with an additional section of recent documentation. Specifically, users will see apps at the top, while recent documents and a dedicated search bar are located below them.

Performance improvements and optimizations

Microsoft has promised some serious performance improvements in Windows 11 thanks to a series of optimizations as well as a host of new technologies. Among the new technologies that will help boost performance is DirectStorage – which is now available on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Users will need one of the latest NVMe SSDs to take advantage of this particular feature, however it will lead to a significant reduction in load times on Windows 11.
