Microsoft has introduced its latest browser, Windows 11.

Panos Panay, the company’s chief product officer, said: “The past 18 months brought an incredible shift in how we used our PCs, from something practical and functional to something personal and emotional.

“This is what inspired us as we were building the next generation of Windows, a platform that over a billion people rely on. With Windows 11, we wanted to build a familiar place where everyone can create, learn, play, and, most importantly, connect in improved ways.”

Windows 11 will be available on new PCs and through a free upgrade for eligible Windows 10 PCs by the end of this year.

Users can easily find what they need by clicking the Start button, which is situated at the centre of the screen.

The button allows users to access recent files previously viewed across different platforms or devices, even on Android or iOS devices.

Multi-tasking will be optimised on Windows 11 via features like Snap Layouts, Snap Groups, and Desktops that help users organise their windows and optimise their screen real estate. Users can now enjoy the flexibility of multiple windows and work on multiple apps simultaneously.

Windows 11 integrates Microsoft Teams into the taskbar, which allows users to instantly connect through text, chat, voice, or video with people anywhere in the world across Windows, Android and iOS. — VNS
