Microsoft’s Windows 11 Features: Android apps coming to Windows 11 !

The new Windows version includes a new Start Menu and Taskbar, alongside widgets that will work with developer apps.


Microsoft’s Windows 11: While the Windows 11 interface has been overhauled, it is more of a facelift than a total overhaul. Yes, Microsoft has relocated the Start button to the bottom centre, but don’t worry, you can always return it to its original location in the left corner. There are also a slew of new productivity options, including the headliner: Android applications!

While the icons, settings menus, and other elements are more contemporary, they are still recognisable. Mr. Nadella described the transfer of the Start button as a “subtle adjustment.” As you launch new apps, the button moves to the left. If you don’t like it, you may configure it to always be in the left corner.

What’s the big deal? Many of the new productivity features were influenced by the epidemic. “Over the last 18 months, we shifted from the PC fitting into people’s lives to people fitting their lives into the PC,” Microsoft Chief Product Officer Panos Panay told me. “People have to get things done and be more productive and creative.”

Here is the lit of features

  • Start Menu: When you click on the Start button, you’ll get a list of your apps. Below that, you’ll see cloud-powered recommendations for the programmes and files Windows believes you’ll need next. For example, if you recently saw a Microsoft Word document on your phone, it will appear on your PC here.

  • Snap Layouts: When you hover over the maximise button in the upper right corner of a window, you’ll see a variety of window layouts that will let you position your open programmes side by side on screen. Possibilities are matched to the size of your screen, so if you’re using a smaller laptop, you’ll get four layout options. A large monitor? There are six possibilities.

  • Desktops: Similar to MacOS’s Spaces, Windows 11 allows you to create designated desktops for the many programmes you use. You may, for example, designate one desktop as “home,” with your grocery lists and personal correspondence, and another as “work,” with all your spreadsheets, Slacks, and other files.

  • Widgets: A new task bar button exposes a widgets layout with the most recent news and weather. Microsoft is considering making this section available to app developers so that they may add their own widgets.

  • Mute the microphone: No more of everyone’s favourite game, “Can’t Find the Mute Button!” The system tray now includes a global microphone mute button, so you don’t have to dig around in your video-call app of choice to discover the setting. In that vein, Microsoft is making a concerted effort to make Teams a reality in Windows 11 by placing the app’s Chat function directly on the task bar. Fortunately, you can get rid of it.

  • External monitors: Did you know that when you unplug an external monitor, all the windows on your laptop screen congregate? When you disconnect your large screen with Windows 11, the active windows just reduce to the laptop’s task bar. When you reattach it, they return to their original position.
