Pros of Windows 11

Windows 11 looks wonderful… It would appear they’ve taken some notes from Apple when it comes to UI design. Things look sleeker, almost glass-like. There are rounded corners, drop shadows and other features that make it one of the best-looking Microsoft operating systems in many peoples’ eyes. The taskbar looks and operates a bit differently as well, being able to be placed centrally (some touch screen users prefer it) along with placed how it usually was.

Windows 11 brings back widgets… For some people, having widgets easily accessible with information such as weather, news, etc. is an important feature that has been brought back. There are various widgets to select from and more will most likely be added over time.

Windows 11 has snap layouts and groups… These features can make it easier to juggle a handful of tasks on a single screen. For many on-the-go with laptops and tablets, having the ability to quickly move between programs, tabs, screens, etc. is highly important. Windows 11 allows users to use Android apps on their devices… Android has some pretty awesome applications that aren’t featured in other places like computers. Many had to resort to emulating Android devices to run these applications. Now with Windows 11 and the Amazon Store, many Android applications can be used right from your Windows 11 computer.
