Windows 11

If you haven’t taken a look at our previous blog on “Windows 11 is here – Things you need to know on this interesting upgrade!!”, Do check it out. The former was based on the leaked developer version which was stable for normal use but digging deep and using it as our daily driver without a backup would have proved costly! So check this thread to know how you can download the official version here!

Step 1: Open Settings

Settings
Open Settings

Click on the Search bar found at the bottom left and type Settings. Then go to Update & Security which is the last option present.

Step 2: Windows Update

If you are on track with the updates, you’ll see that there will be no pending updates. If there’s anything available, Don’t Panic! Just ignore it and follow the next step.

Step 3: Windows Insider Program

The last option you’ll find in the left column will be the Windows Insider Program. Click on it and you’ll see this window. Make sure you are logged in to a valid Microsoft account.

Step 4: Change Insider settings

Most probably, we’ll all be using a stable version till now, but who knew, this crazy-fresh-new-looking Windows 11 will be the one worth trying. So change your Insider settings to Dev Channel and then go back.

Go back to the Windows Update window and click Check for updates! Within a few seconds, you’ll notice Windows 11 Insider Preview is available for your PC and it’ll start downloading!

Kind attention: If you do not have the TPM 2.0(which is usually a module present on the motherboard) or fail other requirements, sorry you cannot do it the official way (yet) 🙁

Step 6: Install and enjoy!

What next, just wait for the download to finish and then install once the Windows prompts to. The boot-up for the first time might take around 20-40 minutes.

Patience is bitter, but it's fruit is sweet

You’ll probably be able to enjoy the features mentioned here ——- HERE ——-. Keep sharing, we’ll be starting the next thread soon!

First look

This is our first look at Windows 11. This screen is visible after some installation as well. Here we can see Edge comes pre-installed (as usual). A major revamp on the taskbar can be seen. The Start menu now pops up in the center and all those icons got a major redesign in terms of location and style.

This is how the “This PC” window looks like and it’s pretty much fresh and catchy as well. These new icons make it easy to differentiate and for long-term use, these must be better!

Major update

One of the most highlighted features is this! The new SNAP feature lets you control where and how the window must be visible on the screen. There’s nothing much we could find out, with less time to experiment, these are some changes we look forward to!

Snap feature on the Windows 11 Pro!

Final verdict

The first look of the screen will look new and fresh to Windows users, but as per reports, Microsoft has adopted certain things from Apple’s macOS. So we would like to tell you that there’s much more this Windows 11 can do and you’ll eventually get to know it!
