What you can expect from today’s Windows 11 launch event?
Ahead of the official announcement, a major leak has revealed the design and feature to come with the arrival of Windows 11. The users will get to see a whole new interface which will include a redesigned Start menu, app icons shifted to the centre of the taskbar and a more clear tray area. The app icon and the Start menu can either be moved to the centre of the taskbar or to the left side. The Live Tiles are said to be completely removed from the Start menu. In short, the interface will look more simplified with pinned apps and a lot more.

There will be a system-wide dark mode with the redesigned app icon and rounded corners throughout Windows 11. The new operating system is likely to include a widget icon that is designed to slide out and provide quick access to news, weather, and other web content.
New snap controls can be accessed from the maximize button on all apps. The company is said to have taken a lot of inspiration from Windows 10X which was scrapped later on. The users will be able to snap windows side by side or arrange them in sections on your desktop.
Besides this, Microsoft is also said to be working on the new app store for windows. The company’s CEO Satya Nadella and chief product officer Panos Panay both will be presenting the new Windows operating system. The Chief commented, “Soon we will share one of the most significant updates to Windows of the past decade to unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators. I’ve been self-hosting it over the past several months, and I’m incredibly excited about the next generation of Windows.”
Moreover, some product configuration keys were also spotted in the leaked Windows 11 build that carries titles of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. This indicates that the next generations of Windows will be brought as a free upgrade for users on older Windows operating systems such as Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 other than WIndows 10.
