  • start menu: Search should be faster and more accurate, and the display of current events in widgets should be improved.
  • window layout: The automatic window grouping function (Snap Layout) becomes more versatile – with better tactile navigation on the one hand, with the possibility of multiple tabs on the other Microsoft’s Fix Edge browser.
  • “neglect”: So-called focus sessions can now be started, which automatically activate the “do not disturb” function. This will mute notifications and taskbar badges, as well as app notifications in the taskbar. The focus function is also integrated into the Clock app and there’s a timer that supports concentration steps, but also reminds you of breaks.
  • Windows Studio: Under this label, Microsoft has brought together a range of new camera and audio features for optimal video and sound quality for video conferences or gaming. New features include Voice Focus to hide background noise and Background Blur to blur the background. There are also other video effects such as automatic framing or eye contact, which help to stay in the center of the picture and maintain eye contact regardless of movements.
  • Clipchamp: Microsoft makes its video editing program an integral part of Windows 11.
  • Gaming: Gamers should benefit from performance optimizations that improve latency. A variable refresh rate is now also available for games in windowed mode. Auto HDR is also new in gaming windowed mode: this function optimizes the performance of games that don’t output high-contrast images (HDR), but only images with normal contrast range (SDR).
  • Android Apps: The announced Amazon Appstore is now joining the Microsoft Store on Windows 11 computers. So users can run Android apps on Windows if they want. The whole thing is officially still running as a preview, so there may still be issues here and there.
  • Security: A new security feature (Smart App Control) is designed to help prevent untrusted applications, script files, and malicious macros from running. In addition, Windows should recognize and warn in the future when login data has been entered for potentially harmful applications or on compromised websites (Defender SmartScreen).
