What makes Windows 11 better than Windows 10 anyway? Today, I will list some of the reasons Windows 11 is so much better than Windows 10, which makes it worthwhile to upgrade. If you’re hesitant about upgrading to Windows 11, I don’t blame you. You have probably been using Windows 10 for 5-6 years, and all of that memory is now useless. Windows 11 is better than Windows 10 in many aspects that make it worthwhile to upgrade.
Trust me, I was one of those people who kept my main computer on Windows 7 through the entire life of Windows 8/10. Only used Windows 10 for work purposes. But Windows 11 was released, and I didn’t look back.
Note : I upgraded from to Windows 11 by using the official ISO provided by Microsoft. Your experience with a Windows 11 computer may differ if you’re going to purchase one. This is due to manufacturers adding extra bloat to it.
It’s easy, right from the beginning
After installing Windows 11 the first thing I was pleasantly surprised by was the fact that it placed me on the desktop with no setups or popups. It gave me everything. Windows 10 has many popups that allow or block features. Some of these are quite shady. In the end Miss Cortana is almost there to help you.
Windows 11 will not have that futuristic personality. Once you have installed Windows 11, you can simply go through the privacy settings, then log in to Microsoft to access your account.
It’s not perfect by default, however. It’s still possible to modify the settings according to your needs.
Windows 11 is minimalist in all aspects. Windows 11 is compact in its settings, Cortana has been disabled by default and the start menu is simplified to concentrate on what is important (more details next). Windows 11 will be a great choice if you are a fan of simple things, such as how Windows 7 worked.
New Start menu and Taskbar
Windows 11 will immediately make you notice the new Start menu and taskbar. The taskbar now has all icons, including the Start button. New default icons have been added, Cortana has been removed, and the internet and sound buttons have been merged into a single popup that offers a lot more options.
The Start menu tiles have been removed. Instead, the Start menu only shows pinned items and recommendations that are based on recent activity. All apps can still be seen, but you’ll need to click on a button.
The question is, are these changes better than the old version? It doesn’t really matter. The taskbar is customizable so that you can switch to Windows 10 style almost instantly (might need registry hacks).
You can change the behavior of the taskbar by changing the settings. Third-party Start menu options may be helpful.
Ask me about my experiences with the changes. I fully embrace the new Start menu/taskbar and have not made any changes. It is more productive for me to have the Start menu and icons at the center of the screen, since my focus is often in the middle of the screen when I am working. The icons are closest to my mouse cursor and I appreciate the Start menu focusing only on what is important.
Better management of background processes
My favorite game runs fine in Windows 7 at 60fps. However, it crashes in Windows 10 at 35-38fps. The game was still running at 60fps when I tried it in Windows 11. All tested on the same PC. This is because of the amount of background processes that they run and how they manage it.
Windows 10 comes with a lot of background apps. These include skype and OneDrive. Windows 11 has fewer background processes/apps running by default. The resource allocation algorithm is also updated in order to prioritize foreground applications.
Windows 11 will perform better on a PC with less RAM or CPU power. This is because it focuses more on the front-end apps and uses fewer resources from background processes.
Better gaming performance
Windows 11 is designed for gamers who are serious about gaming. It supports DirectX12 Ultimate which provides better visuals and frame rates for supported games. DirectX 12 Ultimate is used to give better visuals and performance in many new games.
DirectStorage, another cool feature, takes the load off your PC CPU and decompresses data directly inside the GPU. This allows for faster load times and better frame rates. This feature requires NVMe SSD to function, and DirectStorage must be supported by the game.
You can also enjoy many other features, such as Auto HDR, which is for those who use an HDR monitor, and the built-in Xbox App.
Windows 11 is the right choice if you are looking for the most advanced gaming standards.
Windows 11: Use Android apps
Windows 11’s ability to run Android apps was one of its most popular features. Microsoft promised that it would be available in 2022, but the feature was delayed. It appears that the next Windows 11 update will make Android apps available in Windows 11.
Microsoft has partnered with Amazon appstore and intel in order to allow you to use Android apps natively in Windows 11. Soon, you will be able install your favorite Android apps directly from the Microsoft Store and then run them in an Android subsystem within Windows 11.
Windows 11 allows you to use some Android apps on your desktop, without having to touch your phone. It is not clear if Windows 10 will receive this support.
Windows 11 widgets help you stay on top of the latest information
The taskbar has a widgets button that displays a variety of useful widgets that display the most recent information customized for you. The latest stock, weather, sports, esports and entertainment information is available on the taskbar.
Many widgets include a click more button that allows you to open the specific update in a new browser tab. To view a complete list of widgets, click on the Add widgets link. You can then add widgets to the page. You will find a list of posts below the widgets that provides the most recent news updates.
While you could also get some of these functions in Windows 10, using Cortana or Start menu titles, the dedicated widgets offer much more functionality and are far superior.
Multitasking is easy with snap layouts
Windows 11 has a snap layouts feature. This allows you to snap multiple apps to different grid layouts. Snap layouts are not limited to the drag-and drop feature in Windows 10, but instead use a visual popup that lets you select the type of layout that you desire.
The feature can be accessed by hovering the mouse cursor above the maximize icon in an app, or pressing Windows+Z when an app is open. A small popup will appear with different grid sizes depending on the size of your monitor. There are 2-6 grid layout options.
After you have selected a grid, the app will snap the grid to that area of the screen. You can also choose to snap other open apps to the rest of the grids.
Snap layouts is a better option than Windows 10’s snap assist feature if you frequently snap multiple windows side by side.
Windows 11 is supported by the latest laptops and desktops
Windows 11 is the most popular OS from Microsoft and the preferred operating system by manufacturers for their latest devices. Windows 11 is the only OS you need to have a new computer. It is impossible to downgrade to Windows 10, and it is not possible to buy Windows 10 separately with a new computer.
The sooner you adopt the latest operating system, it’s easier to get a new computer running on it. Windows 11 is the operating system that runs most of the latest laptops from most popular manufacturers.
