The Chinese blog spot, Baidu, has reportedly leaked the next Microsoft software to flagship its desktop OS. The forthcoming Windows 11 appears to be interesting when it showed up unaware online — the mock-up screenshot revealed a new startup button and a new UI, including other interesting features, TechBooky writes.
Windows 11 with a simplified UI and startup menu depicts its developer’s consent to accomplish dual-screen devices on a single display screen. This design has featured in one of its previous OS releases, dubbed Windows 10X. At the time, Microsoft had to pause the Windows 10X project, reserving its soothing UI to feature in a future OS yet to release.
Per the anticipated Windows 11 screenshots, it looks different and enticing, with the app icons on its taskbar now placed at the middle, that was previously at the left side of the Windows taskbar — the taskbar also include a new startup button, the startup menu in the middle, and a cleared app tray.
It worth noting that this software has the option to reverse the app icons and startup menu in the middle of the taskbar back to the original left-sided position. Windows 11 is closely similar to the current OS, despite the new dark mode that features differently.
Still, Microsoft has this short while before Windows 11 release to make adjustments.
This leak also reveals the current Windows 10 has a complex UI in contrast with the anticipated Windows 11 that does not has live app tiles on its startup menu. Windows 11 OS is more simplified — a new UI design has a quick shutdown or restart button on its startup menu.
Windows 11 leaked visuals reveal the startup menu comes with round corners, app icons have round corners, alongside other default apps in File Explorer — all the icons in Windows 11 have round corners.
Remember, this update is only a leak, which means other features and tweaks will be added or excluded when it releases.
In line with TechBooky’s recent updates hinting at Microsoft’s next OS software, we expect to experience new apps or new changes in Microsoft custom-built apps such as its Web browser, Edge. This browser response has reportedly lag according to users’ experience on its previous versions.
We are also expecting Windows 11 beta version that usually arrives prior to the main release. This version is usually reserved for in-house developers to test its functions for possible adjustments. Meanwhile, rumours suggest the software developers will also revive Windows widgets.
The windows 11 beta version will determine if widgets will remain on the taskbar. Note that this widget is not designed to display on full screen, but a quick slide to access weather updates and other web notifications.
Microsoft chief executive, Satya Nadella confirmed the rumoured overhaul on the Windows app store — Microsoft requires a developer application from other tech companies, such as Google’s Chrome and Firefox.
The software company also design Windows 11 for users to easily configure — introducing an out-of-box experience that switches its startup sound while the system boots. Microsoft also integrated Xbox apps with this software — windows games mode and Xbox game bar appear to be the same here.
The update is added to the list of hints about the upcoming Windows 11, Microsoft set to release soon alongside their upcoming developer event.
Just as Windows 11 is anticipated, the current Window OS is scheduled to retire by 2025 — after being in service for almost a decade.
Nonetheless, these leaked updates confirm the next OS version to flagship Microsoft’s software business.
