Windows 11, everything we know

Windows 11, everything we know

Windows 11

Since July 2015, when Microsoft released the latest version of its operating system, Windows 10 to the public (please note: one of the most successful), we have seen a myriad of updates that have helped to constantly improve the user experience. , as well as the operating system itself. But it is well known that the public is never satisfied: after 6 years, Microsoft may have reached the turning point with Windows 10 (which was initially declared as the latest operating system developed by the company), blowing a wind of good. news that becomes more and more intense as June 24 approaches, the presumed date on which a new Windows should be presented, the long-awaited Windows 11 or Windows Sun Valley, as reported by the latest rumors.

in the last few days there has been much talk about Windows Sun Valley: will it be an important update for Windows 10, or is it the code name of the new Windows? We do not yet know if Microsoft wants to launch on a more macOS-style nomenclature or remain faithful to the numbering used so far in most of its operating systems, so let's wait together for the event on June 24 to find out all the highly anticipated details.

Price and release date

As already mentioned, it is not yet official that Windows 11 will actually be announced on June 24th: if this happens, however, it is likely that we will see the update on our PCs by November 2021, after the usual beta test phase. The price of the new Windows is another big unknown, on which we can only make analyzes and forecasts based on the previous operating systems: if Microsoft were to continue to follow the line of the "Home" and "Pro" versions, a Windows 11 is expected. Home on $ 119 and Windows 11 Pro on $ 200, unless the update is released for free in the style of transitioning from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 or from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

It is not however said that Windows 11 will be announced on June 24th. Microsoft could also decide to remain consistent with what was said in 2015 and continue to release only updates for Windows 10, whether simple or important. Windows Sun Valley could therefore be "only" one of the "major updates" of Windows 10, and not the new Windows or the code name of Windows 11.

New feature

One of the main novelties of the new Windows will be the renewal of the design with the new Fluent Design, which will modify the graphic interface, icons and animations. In the past months there has been a lot of talk about this aspect and the news that we would have seen in Windows Sun Valley: in addition to a new UI, the new Windows should integrate a new clipboard accessible with the Win + V key combination, which in addition to having a chronology will also allow the insertion of Emoji and GIFs, it will also offer the possibility to pin the most used elements at the top and to paste the text without formatting.

Among the novelties there is also a new management system of the disk, characterized by a Modern interface and which will allow you to manage partitions and volumes directly from the settings screen, an improved system for battery monitoring and news for the task manager. In addition to this, the new Windows (Sun Valley or Windows 11) will also offer better GPU management: on computers with more than one GPU, Microsoft will allow you to select which one to use for running the various apps and programs. Users will then be able to manage whether to use the energy-saving or the high-performance GPU directly from the Settings app.

The rumor that Windows Sun Valley will not be an update of Windows 10, but the new Windows, is powered by a post in which Microsoft talks about the May 2021 update, which explains that some functions of Windows 10X (operating system whose development has now been abandoned) will take place in other parts of Windows. The fact that the version of Windows has not been specified in the last sentence suggests that we are facing an increasingly probable announcement of Windows 11, which could indeed be Windows Sun Valley.

These "transported" functions from the Windows 10X project would involve a design update for the Taskbar, Start Menu, Control Center, and other graphical changes for dual-screen devices. Some of the new features would then concern a new technology for app containers (which basically serve to package applications in a logical way), an improved Voice Typing experience and some optimizations in the on-screen keyboard.

Someone also talks about a “floating” Start Menu and Jump List based on specific user customization, therefore no longer anchored to any vertex of the screen. The customizations would also include the ability to display more rounded and rounded corners, instead of the classic squared corners. The Microsoft Store will be redesigned, through which the company aims to favor developers by increasing the flow of money into their hands.

Microsoft will certainly not leave us dry-mouthed. We are sure that the news that will be announced in the conference on June 24th, whether it is a completely new operating system or an important update for Windows 10, will amaze us and give us a user experience that always aims to improve, as it is. It has (almost) always been.

You could open a book about the innovations, both graphic and technical, that could be introduced and that users would appreciate (maybe pay a little more attention to the dark mode, or an update of the classic icons that we carry with us from Windows 98), but until June 24 all we will have in hand are only speculations and rumors. In the meantime, we at will take care to report in this article any updates that will arrive before the date of the official announcement.
