Microsoft’s upcoming operating system, Windows 11 has leaked online on June 15. As soon as screenshots went viral and first published at Chinese site Baidu, the complete Windows 11 OS has appeared online with a new user interface, start menu and lots more.
Windows 11 user interface and Start menu look similar to the original Windows 10X. Microsoft was simplifying Windows for dual-screen devices before closing the project in favour of Windows 11.
The biggest noticeable change is the taskbar. The tech giant has centred the app icons, cleaned up the tray area and added a new Start button and menu.
The updated start menu is a simplified version of existing Windows 11 without Live Tiles that includes pinned apps, recent files, and quickly shutting down or restarting Windows 11 devices’ ability. It’s indeed a more simplified version of Windows 10.
The app icons and Start menu are adjustable. If you don’t like the app icons and Start menu centred, you can move them all using an option back to the left-hand side. With the additional dark mode, Windows 11 starts looking like a more refined version of Windows 10 but with a dramatic view.
The company is also put rounded corners throughout Windows 11. These can be seen in context menus and around applications and the File Explorer. The Start menu itself has rounded corners.
You will notice a new icon in the Windows 11 taskbar and its labelled widgets in the OS. According to the rumours, Microsoft is introducing back Windows Widgets. As this is an early version of Windows 11, the widgets haven’t been loaded fully in the OS. But these are designed to slide out and allow access quickly to news, weather and other web content.
As this much about Windows 11 came to light from the leaked video, so everything is not included yet.
Therefore, a lot of changes and modifications to the built-in apps within Windows 11 are expected. As a trench of the operating system has been built, we can expect to see a beta of Windows 11 to arrive soon for Windows insiders to examine.
