What to expect at Microsoft’s Windows 11 event?
In terms of what we can expect during Microsoft's event, the company has teased a “new version of Windows," without confirming the Windows 11 name. Microsoft recently released a video teaser with the new startup sound that will be a part of the next-generation OS. The build that leaked a few days back, suggested that the new PC operating system will come with a new design.
As far as the next generation Windows is concerned, this time Microsoft can make some changes in the user interface. The overall interface may look similar to Windows 10X that Microsoft had showcased in 2019. Apart from this, a new start menu, an updated Files app and a completely redesigned taskbar were hinted in the leaked build.
With the new update, a new Windows logo can also be launched. The photos that were leaked a few days back, revealed that the new logo will be presented with a new Sun Valley design theme with blue color.
Apart from the new user interface of Windows 11, it is also expected that the company can revamp Windows Store. During its Build developer conference, last month, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella teased “significant updates” for Windows that will focus on the economic opportunity for developers and creators.
Satya Nadella said, “We will create more opportunity for every Windows developer today and welcome every creator who is looking for the most innovative, new, open platform to build and distribute and monetize applications.” That means a Windows Store update could be a part of Windows 11.
