Windows 11 Preview 25206 Dev/ 22H2 2022 Update

Windows 11
 is a major version of the Windows NT operating system developed by Microsoft It major changes to the Windows shell influenced by the cancelled Windows 10X, including a redesigned Start menu, and the replacement of its “live tiles” with a separate “Widgets” panel on the taskbar.

Also, it offers the ability to create tiled sets of windows that can be minimized and restored from the taskbar as a group. There are new gaming technologies inherited from Xbox Series X and Series S such as Auto HDR and DirectStorage on compatible hardware. Internet Explorer (IE) has been replaced by the Blink engine-based Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft increased the hardware requirements compared to Windows 10. Now supports only the operating system with updates on devices using an eighth-generation Intel Core CPU or newer (with some exceptions). Also, AMD Ryzen CPU is based on Zen+ microarchitecture or newer. Or Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 ARM system-on-chip or newer. Windows 11 is built for UEFI secure boot and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 support. Additionally, Windows 11 no longer supports 32-bit x86 architecture or systems using BIOS firmware.

To fully understand the magic of Windows 11 you must get it in your hands. In Windows 11 you will find more features such as Chat with Microsoft Teams and Android apps in the Microsoft Store over the coming months as they are ready for you.

Beautiful, fresh, calm visuals and sounds

From rounded corners to the centring of content and new animations, this new visual design extends across multiple areas of Windows 11. Here are some key highlights that you will see after installing this build:

  • Start: Start puts everything you need on your PC at the centre with a set of pinned apps and a cloud-powered “Recommended” section. It shows your recently opened files from both your PC and across your devices like your smartphone with OneDrive.
  • Taskbar: The taskbar is also centred on beautiful new animations. Try pinning, launching, switching, minimizing, and rearranging your apps on Taskbar to see the beautiful new animations.
  • Notification Center & Quick SettingsThe lower right corner of the Taskbar has a button for Notification Center (WIN + N) and Quick Settings (WIN + A). Notification Center is the home for all your notifications in the OS and a full-month calendar view.
  • File Explorer: File Explorer has been made modern with a clean look and brand-new command bar. Also introduced beautifully designed context menus when right-clicking in File Explorer or on your desktop. App developers will be able to extend the new context menus.
  • Themes: In addition to brand new default themes for Windows 11 for both dark and light mode, it also includes four additional themes so you can make Windows feel the way you want it to. All the new themes were designed to complement the centred Taskbar. To change your theme, just right-click on your desktop and choose “Personalize”.
  • Sounds: The sounds in Windows 11 nos are lighter and more atmospheric. They are also slightly different depending on whether your Windows theme is in dark mode or light mode. The startup sound for Windows also makes its return which you’ll hear when your PC boots up.
Widgets

Widgets bring you closer to the information you both want and need. Just click on the widget's icon on the Taskbar. Swipe from the left using touch, or hit WIN + W on your keyboard. And your widgets slide out from the leftover of your desktop. You can personalize your experience by adding or removing widgets, re-arranging, resizing, and customizing the content. The set of widgets we provide currently focuses on your calendar, weather, local traffic, and your Microsoft Do lists. Also your photos from OneDrive, sports and esports, your stock watchlist, and tips.

Multitasking

Increase your productivity and creativity with these new multitasking features:

  • Snap layouts: Just hover your mouse over a window’s maximize button to see available snap layouts, then click on a zone to snap the window. You’ll then be guided to snap windows to the rest of the zones within the layout with the guided snap assist. For smaller screens, you’ll be offered a set of 4 snap layouts. You can also invoke the snap layouts flyout with the WIN + Z keyboard shortcut.
  • Snap groups: Snap groups are a way to easily switch back to your snapped windows. To try this out, snap together at least 2 app windows on your screen.
  • Desktops: Access your Desktops via Task View (WIN + Tab) on the Taskbar. You can reorder and customize the backgrounds for each of your Desktops.
Docking

When you undock your laptop, the windows on your external monitor will be minimized. When you re-dock your computer to your monitor, Windows puts everything back exactly where you had it before! You can find the settings for these features under System > Display > Multiple Displays.

Input (touch, inking, and voice)
  • Touch Keyboard personalization: To personalize your Windows experience, we have designed 13 new themes for the touch keyboard including three hardware matching themes that match the Surface colours. A brand-new theme engine allows you to create a fully customized theme including background images. Based on your feedback we have also introduced a setting to resize the touch keyboard.
  • Voice typing launcher: The new voice typing launcher is a quick and easy way for you to start voice typing in a selected text field.

You can try out DRR on your laptop via Settings > System > Display > Advanced display, and under “Choose a refresh rate” select a “Dynamic” refresh rate.
  • Other display improvements coming in Windows 11: Auto HDR, Content adaptive brightness control (CABC) disabling, HDR support for colour-managed apps, and HDR certification.
