Windows 11 at a quick glance

  • A recent Windows 11 update is causing Start menu problems for many users — but a design change, not a bug, is mostly to blame.

  • Beware: Windows 11's data wipe tool can leave personal info behind on the hard drive, so if you're going to sell a Windows PC and you reset it back to factory defaults, double-check there's no "Windows.old" folder hanging around full of old files.

  • Preview builds of Windows 11 are getting Start menu folders, a revamped Task Manager, new touch gestures and the return of folder previews in File Manager and drag-and-drop abilities on the Taskbar.

  • Windows 11 will get worse about nagging users on unsupported PCs, so expect to see more little warnings popping up when your PC isn't up to snuff.

  • Windows 11 is finally getting more Android app support in February 2022, when Microsoft will roll out a preview of native Android apps to all Windows 11 users in the operating system's first major update.

  • Windows 11 has a more inviting and streamlined look, with rounded corners and a new Start menu that's front and center. Microsoft is continuing to update and streamline it -- the latest Windows 11 update finally axes ugly volume UI, for example.

  • New Desktops feature helps you set up multiple desktops for work and play.

  • New Snap Assist and Layouts make it easier to manage multiple windows on your screen.

  • Windows 11 widgets are fine if all you care about is the news, weather and your calendar, but at launch there aren't many others available and what's here is barebones.

  • Auto HDR and DirectStorage will improve game performance — if you have compatible hardware.

  • Steep system requirements mean most PCs built before 2018 are out of luck.

  • Native Android app support and other features missing at launch. However, Windows 11 users can now beta test Windows 11 Android app support — here’s how.

  • Google has launched a Google Play Games for PC app for Windows 10 and 11 in 2022, opening the door to all Android games on Windows 11.

  • Windows 11 is blocking Microsoft Edge blockers.
