A new look for 11
Fluent Design is the new name for the look of Windows 11. Across the board everything looks more modern and fresh, with rounded windows and apps such as Snipping Tool seeing huge improvements in years.
One of the biggest changes users will notice is that the Start menu has been moved to the center of the screen – and it's now "cloud powered", so it dynamically changes depending on the time of day, and the content you're working with.
If you're using the Insider Build, there's already ways of customizing the taskbar and the start menu, including moving the icons back to the left.
Light Mode and Dark Mode are here too, with a unified design across the operating system, with colorful wallpapers to choose from as well.
Windows 11 provides a calming, creative space to pursue your passion through fresh experiences. From the all-new Start menu to new ways to connect with the people you love, news, games and content, Windows 11 is a place to think, express, and create in a natural way.
Windows Widgets are back in Windows 11, accessible via the dock, with Microsoft touting AI-powered dynamic features that enable widgets, as with the Start menu, to change depending on the apps you're using and the time of day. On the touchscreen, you can slide from the left on the desktop to have widgets appear.
There are plenty to choose from, such as the weather, Bing maps, news, and more.
These will be available for third-parties as well, so you may see as many widgets available to pick as there are on Apple's iOS and iPadOS operating systems.
Many apps are being redesigned for Windows 11, such as the Photos, Snipping Tool and Paint apps, bringing them in line with the Fluent Design language.
Tablet mode has been one of Windows' weaker points ever since Windows 8, and the new tablet features that Microsoft showed off for Windows 11 could be key to the operating system's fortunes, especially with future Surface products in the pipeline from Microsoft – to have a new, numbered operating system for its upcoming tablets could be a big selling point for new users.
At the event, Microsoft touted bigger touch targets and easier ways to move windows around, and better rotate optimizations, for example in how windows are rearranged, so you don't lose track of the applications you were using.
Gestures used with the trackpad of the Surface models are also coming to the touchscreen, bringing in some familiarity here. Haptics is also coming to Windows 11 when you use a stylus for better feedback when drawing or sketching.
The touch keyboard has also been redesigned, with a smaller keyboard just for your thumb, and emojis ready to be used. Microsoft says dictation will also be improved, alongside voice commands, with 'delete that' options and more.
When will Windows 11 be released?
Microsoft has announced that Windows 11 is going to be available for new machines starting October 5, 2021. Updates to existing Windows 10 users should start coming at the start of 2022, and Microsoft hopes to have offered Windows 11 to every compatible machine by mid-2022.
The Windows Insider build of Windows 11 is already available for beta testing on the Dev Channel, though, and users can now download the Windows 11 ISO.
Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 11 will begin rollout from October 5, 2021. This expands on a blog post by Panos Panay , the Chief Product Officer of Windows, previous to this, which stated "Windows 11 will be available through a free upgrade for eligible Windows 10 PCs and on new PCs beginning this holiday."
We could also see a chunky update for Windows 10 drop around the same time as well, although Microsoft will probably focus on its new OS for the main part. Windows 10 will still be getting updates until 2025, so there's plenty of life in the old dog yet.
This release date for Windows 11 is for new machines, with the update for existing Windows 10 users coming at the beginning of 2022. This should mean that any bugs and problems will be (mostly) sorted by the time you can upgrade. If you can upgrade, assuming you have a TPM 2.0 compatible machine.
If you're eager to see what all the fuss is about, then you could install the Windows 11 Insider build right now or the Windows 11 ISO. These are currently early builds, though they do feature the new interface and some key Windows 11 features. That said, we wouldn't recommend installing it on your main machine, as it's still early in the release schedule and there's a good chance it won't work flawlessly.
How to download Windows 11
Microsoft has been updating the Insider builds of Windows 11 on the developer channel since its announcement, so if you want to give it a try, we have a handy guide all about how to download Windows 11.
The build is now widely available on the beta channel, showcasing more refinements across the board, including the Microsoft Store.
Before you do though, the best point of call would be to make sure that your PC is enrolled for Microsoft's Insider Program first, as long as it meets the requirements.
But do be aware, we advise to only run it on a PC that's not your main machine, as there are plenty of small issues for now.
Hardware requirements for Windows 11:
|Processor||A compatible 64-bit processor (x86-64 or ARM64) with at least 1 GHz clock rate and at least 2 cores|
|Memory (RAM)||At least 4GB|
|Storage space||At least 64 GB|
|Security||Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0|
|Graphics card||Compatible with DirectX 12 or later with WDDM 2.0 driver|
|Display||High definition (720p) display that is greater than 9” diagonally, 8 bits per color channel|
|Internet connection and Microsoft accounts||Internet connection and Microsoft account required to complete first-time setup on Windows 11 Home.|
The basic system requirements of Windows 11 differ significantly from Windows 10. Windows 11 only supports 64-bit systems such as those using an x86-64 or ARM64 processor; IA-32 processors are no longer supported. Thus, Windows 11 is the first consumer version of Windows not to support 32 bit processors and 16-bit software (though Windows Server 2008 R2 was the first version of Windows NT to not support them). The minimum RAM and storage requirements were also increased; Windows 11 now requires at least 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. S mode is only supported for the Home edition of Windows 11.As of August 2021, the officially supported list of processors includes Intel Core 8th generation and later, AMD Zen+ and later, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 and later.The compatibility list also includes the "AF" revisions of Ryzen processors and the Intel Core i7-7820HQ (a 7th generation processor), although the latter is only supported on devices that shipped with DCH-based drivers. Devices with unsupported processors are not blocked from installing or running Windows 11, however a clean install must be performed as Windows Update will prevent an upgrade from Windows 10. Additionally, Microsoft has stated that devices using unsupported processors may be blocked from installing updates.
Legacy BIOS is no longer supported; a UEFI system with Secure Boot and a TPM 2.0 security coprocessor is now required.The TPM requirement in particular has led to confusion as many motherboards do not have TPM support, require a compatible TPM module to be physically installed onto the motherboard, or have a built-in TPM on the CPU firmware or hardware level that is disabled by default which requires changing settings in the computer's UEFI to enable.Original equipment manufacturers can still ship computers without the TPM 2.0 coprocessor upon Microsoft's approval.
