Cons of Windows 11

Windows 11 changed how right-click works… It may not seem like that big of a deal but when you are used to how something works for many years, it can be hard to adjust to change. Right-click with Windows 11 is something that has changed, and for many, not for the better. Most typical settings are now nestled under Show more options, meaning users have to click an additional option to reach features that have always been available upon right-click in the past. Windows 11 replaced Skype with Teams… Many people have been using Skype for quite a few years now and were a bit confused upon seeing it no longer automatically featured. Teams has taken center stage and is now the default communication program Microsoft would like you to use. Users can download and install Skype separately, it just is not featured any longer.

Windows 11 has removed Cortana… For some people, this may actually be a pro, but for many though they find it to be a con. Cortana was the AI assistant that could help with various tasks much like Alexa or Siri.

Windows 11 may not even run on your computer… Due to the fact Windows 11 requires hardware of certain specifications, it may not run on devices that are a bit older. Requiring a new device entirely or at the very least a hardware upgrade. Wondering if Windows 11 will work on your device? We’d be happy to help you find out. Missed our pros of Windows 11 blog?
