Windows 11: Release Date, New User Interface, Start Menu, Leaked Build

Microsoft has been dropping hints that Windows 11 is nearing completion. On June 24th, the software beast will host a special Windows event to reveal its next operating system. The event begins at 11 a.m. ET, and the invitation includes a window that casts a shadow with an outline that resembles the number 11. Microsoft executives have also been teasing an announcement about the “next generation of Windows” for months, and this leak confirms that Windows 11 will be unveiled later this month.

The upcoming Windows 11 operating system from Microsoft was leaked online. Following the publication of screenshots on the Chinese website Baidu, the entire Windows 11 operating system has been made available online, complete with a new user interface, Start menu, and much more.

The new Windows 11 user interface and Start menu appear to be very similar to those found in Windows 10X. Microsoft had been working on simplifying Windows for dual-screen devices before abandoning it in favour of Windows 11. The most noticeable visual changes will be found along the taskbar. Microsoft has centred the app icons in this area, cleaned up the tray area, and added a new Start button and menu.

This updated Start menu is a simplified version of what is currently available in Windows 10, and it does not include Live Tiles. Pinnable apps, recent files, and the ability to quickly shut down or restart Windows 11 devices are all included. It’s actually a lot simpler than what’s available in Windows 10 right now.

If you don’t want the app icons and Start menu to be centred, you can move them all to the left-hand side. When combined with the available dark mode, Windows 11 appears to be a more refined version of Windows 10 rather than something significantly new.

Microsoft has also used rounded corners in Windows 11. These can be found in context menus, as well as around apps and the File Explorer. The Start menu has rounded corners as well. Because this is a leaked early version of Windows 11, not everything is yet included.

More changes to the built-in apps in Windows 11 are expected, but the majority of them do not appear to be present yet. However, a large portion of the operating system appears to be finished, so we can expect a beta of this to arrive soon for Windows Insiders to test.

You might have noticed a new icon in the Windows 11 taskbar labelled Widgets. According to rumours, Microsoft is reintroducing Windows Widgets, and this early version appears to include some.

The Windows Store interface is largely the same as it is in Windows 10, with access to all of the same apps that are currently available.

Microsoft has reportedly been working on a new app store for Windows in recent months, and rumours suggest it will be a significant departure from what is currently available. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has promised that Windows will “unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators,” which will most likely take the form of a new store.
