Reports suggest that Microsoft is going to be releasing the subsequent update as Windows 11, leaving the Windows 10 nomenclature behind.

The new leak suggests that Windows 11 could even have a replacement widget icon within the taskbar.

The Verge’s Tom Warren has leaked screenshots of the planning elements of Windows 11. tons of design inspiration is taken from the Windows 10X that was originally built for dual screens but was scrapped later. The app icons appear within the center of the taskbar, the tray area has been cleaned up, and a replacement Start button and menu are incorporated. you’ll place the app icons and therefore the Start menu within the center of the taskbar or move them to the left side. There are not any Live Tiles within the Start Menu. it’s a simplified design with pinned apps, recent files, and pack up and restart options.

Screenshots show that Windows 11 can also accompany a system-wide dark mode. The interface is cleaner. It includes redesigned app icon and rounded corners overall. The new Windows app store isn’t reflecting yet but should be included within the final version.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella at the Build 2021 conference said that subsequent updates are going to be ‘one of the foremost significant updates to Windows of the past decade’ and it’ll ‘unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators.’

Windows 11 also will likely have a widget icon with quick access to news, weather, and another web page. There are new snap controls that you simply can access from the maximize button on all apps. it’s essentially a redesigned version of the cascade windows function that has existed within the OS for years. you’ll quickly snap windows side by side, or arrange them in sections on your desktop. Microsoft is reportedly also improving the Xbox experience in Windows 11 with quick access to Xbox Game Pass games, the social parts of the Xbox network, and therefore the Xbox store.

YouTuber Michael MJD has also done a summary of the upcoming Windows 11 and shown elaborately what it’s like in his new video. you’ll watch the video below:

The launch event for the new Windows is scheduled for Midsummer Day at 11 am Eastern Time (8.30 pm IST).
