Windows 11 Already Leaked: New Start Menu, Explorer and Taskbar

Microsoft will unveil its latest Windows 11 software on Thursday, June 24, but it hasn’t been able to keep the software a secret. The first beta version has already been leaked and has been extensively analyzed left and right.

At its developer conference nearly a month ago, CEO Satya Nadella promised that Microsoft would release “one of the most important Windows updates in the past decade”. Soon, the company announced that support for Windows 10 would end in 2025. And what many already suspected: the new Windows is actually called Windows 11.

The company is not satisfied with the diversion. Last week, Microsoft Japan released another software try to To move an article that offered offline Windows 11 installation files.

When Windows 10 was launched, Microsoft promised that the build number would not change. Version 9 was even skipped. It is possible that the name change is limited after all due to the newly designed start menu, explorer, and taskbar.

Windows 11 appears to be based largely on Windows 10X, which is the system software meant for dual-screen devices like the Surface Duo and Surface Neo. Recently, Microsoft decided to stop its development.

The most significant change is the taskbar whose icons are centered, like Chrome OS or macOS. Familiar tiles have disappeared from the start menu. It gave way to a fairly simple network of software icons. However, there is still a distinction between viewing all programs and choosing from them. The start menu can still be moved to the left side of the taskbar by the way.

Many of the changes are cosmetic in nature: Microsoft uses many rounded corners, including in context menus, around apps, and in the start menu. The search function has also been given a new interface.

The recently launched widget app, which contains personal information about weather, news and stocks, has been changed to the language bar. The new Xbox app is also integrated into Windows 11 and provides quick access to games.

Windows 11 also has a new Snap function, which allows windows to be placed on one side of the screen or a corner.

Thursday will be clear when Windows 11 comes out. It’s usually sometime in the fall, but Windows Central thinks it could be close to the holidays. As of Thursday, Windows 11 will likely already be available through the Windows Insiders Program. Windows 11 will definitely be a free upgrade for Windows 10 users.
