Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 11 operating system is being expected by many users. Windows 11 on PC leaks with beautiful and modern interface, new Start menu and more. Without making people wait long, here are the new Windows 11 features that you should experience right away.
1. Auto HDR mode for gamers
If you use an HDR monitor, Windows 11 will bring an automatic HDR mode when playing games. This is a DirectX feature that enables HDR capabilities for more than 1,000 games, even if they are not encoded to support HDR.
Even if you’re not a gamer, Windows 11 has HDR-related enhancements for you. Microsoft has added HDR support to color-managed apps, like Adobe Photoshop. This allows those apps to access the full range of colors on an HDR display. You need to enable this setting for each app according to its compatibility properties.
2. Emulator x64 for ARM devices
This is a big Windows 11 feature that helps support ARM mobile devices that can emulate x64 apps.
Until now, Windows ARM laptops like the HP Elite Folio could only run native ARM apps or emulate x86 (32-bit) apps. That’s a problem because there are some apps that no longer offer 32-bit variants. With support for x64 emulation, almost any Windows application will now work with ARM-based phones and tablets.
3. Better keyboard and input
Microsoft is dramatically improving the touch keyboard experience on Windows 11 without making any changes to your hardware.
The virtual keyboard has a new design with transparency effects, built-in emojis and animated GIF search. The menu has been overhauled to be easier to understand, with labels for every button and nested structure. Plus, you can now easily remove the touch pad from the bottom of the display and move it around.
You can also move the text cursor with the touch pad by holding the spacebar and moving your finger to the desired spot. In addition, there is a quick shortcut for voice input. Voice input also gets a new, more modern look, with transparency effects and smaller windows. If you want to use it without a touch keyboard, you can activate it with Windows key + H .
4. New Folder Icons on Windows 11
The icons for the File Explorer folders have changed, with more colors. For example, the Downloads folder is green. The Desktop folder is like a miniature desktop.
In addition to File Explorer, system applications also have new icons such as Windows Security, Notepad, Task Manager.
Microsoft also introduced a new font for Windows 11 called Segoe UI Variable. This new font scales better for high DPI screens, something the old Segoe UI font didn’t.
5. Improved Settings app
Microsoft has integrated more system settings into Settings . The Storage section has the most improvements. Disk management has been integrated into the Settings app, as is the Storage Space feature. These allow you to manage the drives connected to your PC, as well as create storage pools across different drives.
Another new innovation is the SSD reliability warning. When Windows detects that one of your drives is at risk of failure, you’ll receive a warning message so you can replace the drive before you lose data. Meanwhile, drive optimization remains separate from the Settings app, but Microsoft has added a new Advanced view that lets you see additional drives.
6. Add new apps
Windows 11 has two new applications, Windows Terminal and Power Automate Desktop. Windows Terminal is the next evolution of the command line, and it brings together all your command line environments.
You can run Command Prompt, PowerShell, Azure Cloud Shell, and your Linux distributions inside Windows Terminal, all with a tabbed interface so you don’t need multiple windows. You can also customize the look and feel of each of your profiles to easily identify them at a glance.
7. Personalized Setup
When you set up your computer for the first time, you can personalize your computer even more. Such as Gaming, School, Entertainment, Business, etc. for a more tailored experience.
8. Improved Task Manager
Task Manager Task Manager now shows the architecture used by each of your applications. In the details tab, you’ll see a New Architecture label, which will specify whether a given process is x86, x64, or ARM.
In addition, Windows 11 will add the Eco Mode feature to the Task Manager. If you notice an application using too many resources on your computer, you can switch to Economy mode to reduce that usage.
