Windows 11 Features

With the new Windows 11 release, you can be sure there will be a slew of new features to look forward to. Greenlight Computers have looked at the upcoming operating system and look forward to some of these key highlights…

A new, more Mac-like interface.

Windows 11 has a clean, sleek design, and has a centralised app bar at the bottom of the display.

Integrated Android apps. This feature will not be available on release day.

These apps will be installable from the Microsoft Store via the Amazon Appstore


The widgets will be accessible via the taskbar and you will be able to personalize them to see what you would like

Microsoft Teams integration.

Teams will be getting a new look and will be integrated in the taskbar, allowing for easier access like apple’s facetime.

Better virtual desktop support

This will allow you to set up virtual desktops in a way that is similar to macOS. You will be able to switch between the different desktops you have set up with ease.

Easier transition from monitor to laptop, and better multitasking.

A new feature is Snap Groups and Snap Layouts – These are a collection of apps you use that will sit in the taskbar and can be maximised or minimised at the same time, making it easier for you to switch between tasks. You can unplug and plug into monitors without the screens being lost in the process.
