Windows 11

When Windows 11 becomes available to Windows users with compatible computers this Holiday season, you can download it the same way you would with any new version of Windows.

For most PC users you have to go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and click Check for Updates. If available, you’ll see Feature update to Windows 11. Click Download and install.

Windows 11 features a streamlined new design, with pastel colors, rounded corners, a new startup sound, and overall a cooler and new look. The Windows Start menu has shifted from the bottom left of the screen to the middle, with app icons organized in the center next to it. You’ll find loads of new desktop tools, like widgets that can give you at-a-glance details, and easier virtual desktop creation. And Android apps will be combined into Windows and installable from the Microsoft Store.

The new update marks the first significant change to Microsoft’s OS since Windows 10 was released back in 2015. Rumors about a significant Windows redesign have been circling the internet for the past year. At the Microsoft Build developers conference on May 25, CEO Satya Nadella said Microsoft was preparing “one of the most significant updates of Windows of the past decade,” confirming that a significant change was coming out for the 1.3 billion users of the OS in 2021. And in mid-June, Microsoft announced that it would end support for Windows 10 in 2025 as leaked images of Windows 11 gone viral on internet.
