As with any major release of operating systemAttention was drawn to Windows 11 – which happened at the end of last year in Brazil. The question every Microsoft user asks: Is upgrading the system worth it?

To try to understand more about this topic, the mail Listen to Leandro Martins dos Santos, who specializes in systems analysis and development. To the expert, the answer is obvious: the new system does not have many advantages over Windows 10.

“Windows 11 is getting nicer and easier to navigate, but it’s still useless to choose the new system. It’s still common for a new update to introduce instability after its release, so if over time it proves to be a good update, it can become a good migration option. Leandro explains.

At this first moment, Microsoft is updating Windows 11 and the company’s initial idea was that all devices that meet the basic requirements will receive the update by mid-2022. It has a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 4 GB RAM, no RAM Less than 64 GB internal storage and TPM 2.0 compatibility.

If your device already has these requirements, the process is simple, just download Windows 11 ISO from Microsoft website and the installation wizard will run automatically. And this is one of the novelties of Windows 11, “Cortana” (Microsoft’s virtual assistant) will not be activated as the default, which gives indications that the company does not intend to continue the fight over virtual assistants, leaving the way open to Google, Apple and Amazon.

Because the home office is here to stay, Windows Update is aimed at everyday practicality, as Microsoft Teams tools are already built right into the computer. Regarding this positive news, Leandro points out that one of the highlights is the new split screen. “With this novelty, the user can move between the different windows without having to change them, and this was a must for the developers.”

One of the first changes a user will notice in Windows 11 is the change in appearance, as the Windows 11 search bar is centralized, with the idea of ​​becoming more educable in navigation. “The central bar brings an idea of ​​a more streamlined and modern user experience, but the advantage of that will depend on how each individual uses this new configuration,” explains Leandro.

The other big change is in the Start Menu, this sidebar has been changed along with the well-known Alphabetical program. Now at the top there is a “search field”, and then a field with some programs selected by Microsoft – it should be noted that if it is not enough, just click on “All Programs” and add others. New in this sector is the “Recommendations” field, which collects the last used applications or open files, making it easier for you to pick up on the task from where you left off.

The systems analyst believes that Microsoft will at some point make Windows 11 mandatory. “At some point, Microsoft will end support for Windows 10, forcing the user to migrate, as happened recently with Windows 7.”
