Window’s is one of the largest computer operating systems in the tech world. It is no surprise that when it comes to staying up to date, it is something we want to prioritize for ourselves and our customers.

According to Microsoft they estimate 1.5 billion users have some version of Windows on their computers. As we see a steady increase in remote workers and children taking classes online, the need for faster and safer processing systems is imperative. So, what does windows 11 offer?

Virtual Desktops. If you have owned a Mac in the past and enjoyed the ebb and flow of a Mac, then Microsoft 11’s desktops are for you. You can now switch between different desktops created for specific needs, such as business, personal or gaming.

    • Widgets.

Widgets are a helpful new tool that Microsoft will be adding to the update. Microsoft creates a clean and smooth panel that moves over your desktop; however, it can also be used Full-screen so you can see everything in one place. Microsoft is creating the ability to arrange your widgets to use quickly and easily as you need them.

      • Voice to text.

Windows is also introducing voice typing. This is a great tool for on-the-go note-takers. Helping you stay organized and on task.

        • Task View

Windows 11 now offers task view. This gives users the ability to switch from windowpanes more easily. You will be able to organize windows by size, to create ease and simplicity for your projects. You will be able to set this up through your settings upon updating.

Distraction free work.

I think everyone can agree that we could get more work carried out if we had fewer distractions. Often phone calls, new emails and text messages will arrive while we are working, and we find ourselves at once derailed from our train of thought.

Well great news! Windows has created focus sessions!

This is a great tool for those of us who want to create a time where we can double down and get work done quickly and efficiently.

Focus Sessions will cut emails, messages, and other distracting notifications so you can focus on your priorities. You can find this feature through your Alarms app on Windows. You can set aside several hours of focus time completely undistracted.

Faster Processing System.

I know from my experience how frustrating a slow processing system can be. When things are quick and easy our stress levels and our work time decrease. We work smarter, not harder.

Windows 11 provides an even faster system, with minimal wait times for loading applications or other accessories.

When you put Windows 11 to sleep, it powers down all other components except the RAM. Then, when the PC wakes up, it resumes much faster because the RAM doesn’t have to power up all over again. According to Steve Dispensa, keeping the RAM energized results in two key advantages. First, the low-level call-to-hardware functions are perfected for better memory management. Second, at the higher-level software layer, Windows 11 keeps important threads from starvation. Starvation happens when a thread “dies” because of the lack of resources. Windows 11 keeps important threads alive by sharing resources when and where the resources are needed.

How much will Windows 11 cost?

This really depends on your current processing

system. If you are currently running windows 10, then windows 11 appears it will be free to those users for a time.

If you don’t have a current windows 10 version, then it appears the cost may be just over $100.
