Hearing lot about the new windows 11 ?
Tech Aficionado brings you a detailed article explaining all about Windows 11 and what are some of the pros and cons of it.
First of all, we'll be discussing some of the great features you're going to get with Windows 11 as well as the minimum system requirements.
The look is just amazing, the Windows 11 has a glossy effect which gives it a very sober and minimal look. The new features added are the improved widgets panel. You can directly hit "Windows+W" to get your widget panel and customize it as per your wish. There is a total of six custom themes are available for your desktop wallpaper. Ther's a light as well as the dark theme of Windows 11.
The on=screen keyboard now has an option to switch between pre-defined themes, you can even set your own picture for the background of the keyboard.
To switch to multitasking all you need to do is hover the minimize/maximize option of the current tab and you'll get several options to choose from.
Start puts everything you need on your PC at the center with a set of pinned apps and a cloud-powered “Recommended” section that shows your recently opened files from both your PC and across your devices like your smartphone with OneDrive.
Some new features also include a voice typing launcher which gets activated by pressing "Windows+H". If you're in a text box and want to type but don't want to use the keyboard, you can simply use it. As of now, this feature doesn't work like a charm but a stable version must be having some significant improvements.
Swiping left/right – quickly switch to the last used app window.
Swiping down – go back to the desktop (if you follow it with a swiping up, you can restore the app windows).
Swiping up – open Task View to browse all app windows and desktops.
Swiping left/right – switch to the previous/next desktop
Swiping up/down – (same with three-finger ones).
I have used these gestures and it doesn't feel right to use four fingers on the trackpad of the laptop. Your trackpad should be quite big to use these four-finger gestures and these gestures are not very smooth as of now. My laptop is old and the four-finger gestures don't even work properly due to the fact that all four fingers.
Here are the minimum requirements to run Windows 11 on your system

An important point to be added is that "Windows 10" will stop operating from 2025. You won't be getting any updates.
Some inputs from my personal use are that, we've got a huge habit of refreshing our screen several times. The thing is that the developer version doesn't have a refresh option on right-clicking on a particular tab, this ain't a big issue as people could simply use F5 for refreshing but this feels a bit odd.
