The first thing that surprised you after installing Windows 11 was that there were no popups or settings, and everything remained on your desktop. Windows 10 has to handle a lot of pop-ups to allow/block features, many of which are somewhat fishy. Finally, Cortana will serve you with a little power.
Windows 11 does not have these futuristic features. After installation, implement some privacy features, verify your Microsoft account and sign in, and you’re ready to use your PC. Still, challenge the configuration and change it as needed. For special features, you can downgrade from Windows 11 to Windows 10.
Windows 11 is also generally lean in all respects. The settings are zipped, Cortana is disabled by default, and the Start menu has been removed, focusing on what’s important. If you appreciate something as simple as Windows 7 works, you will love Windows 11.
- New start menu and taskbar
There are some new standard icons, Cortana is gone, the internet and volume buttons have been combined into a single popup, and more options have been added.
- Windows 11 taskbar
The Start menu tiles are gone, and the Start menu only shows fixed points and recommendations based on recent activity. You can still see all the applications, but you must click on the dedicated button.

Now the question remains, are the changes better than the previous version? If you do not like the changes, the taskbar will be very customizable, so you can almost switch to the Windows 10-style taskbar with the appropriate changes (you may need to adjust the registry).
You can move the icon to the left, undo Cortana, remove/add icons, and change the behavior of the taskbar from the settings. You cannot change the Start menu often, but a third-party Start menu option can help here.
- Better management of background processes
On Windows 7, your favorite game runs fine at 60 fps, but on Windows 10, it drops to 35-38 fps. And when you tested the game on Windows 11, it gave 60 fps again (all tested on the same test PC). If your computer has low RAM and CPU power, Windows 11 will focus on foreground applications and improve performance with fewer background processes using limited resources.
- Better gaming performance
For professional gamers, Windows 11 has tools to get the most out of your advanced hardware. It is compatible with DirectX 12 Ultimate and provides better graphics and frame rates in compatible games. Many new game titles have their visual settings that utilize DirectX 12 Ultimate to enhance performance and visual effects.
Many other features enhance the gaming experience, such as HDR monitors and Auto HDR for people using the integrated Xbox app.
- Windows 11 tools keep you informed.
The taskbar contains buttons for widgets, and many useful widgets display custom and up-to-date information. Get the latest information on stocks, weather, sports, e-sports, entertainment, photos, and more.
- Widget for Windows 11
Most tools have a Show Details button to open a specific update on a browser tab to see more information. Below the tool is a long list of publications that provide the latest news updates.
- Adding new tools for Windows 11
You can also get some of these features in Windows 10 using Cortana and the Start Menu title, but the dedicated tool is much better and offers more tools.New tools enhance your specialty after downgrade from Windows 11 to Windows 10.
- Snap scheduling makes multitasking easier.
Windows 11 has a new real-time layout feature that lets you adjust multiple apps with grid layouts of different sizes on your screen. Instant Layouts uses visual popups to select the exact type of layout you want instead of using the Windows 10 drag-and-drop feature. To use this feature, hover over the app’s maximize button or press Windows + Z while the app’s open.
The latest laptops and desktops are compatible with Windows 11
As the latest operating system from Microsoft, manufacturers prioritize Windows 11 as the operating system to be used for their latest devices. To buy a new PC, use Windows 11. You cannot switch to Windows 10, and it is not practical (or logical) to buy Windows 10 separately with a new PC.
