How it Works0 min ago
Just a heads up after your original thread about W11. I have allowed it to load on my Surface pro this evening. I waited for a while after the first release so that any teething problems were sorted. I also have, ready to install, an encryption module for my desktop that is going in when the weather means I stay in. It is a big update and I would not recommend it for anything less than fast reliable internet and a god machine. W11 is looking lovely and is going to fly. This is my first post to any site on it. For anyone looking in I am, as is Barry, taking part in the Microsoft insider programme.

Haha Wolf ... Freudian perhaps, "good machine". The layout in settings and the like is super and the widget app looks interesting as does the multi display facility. I will have to wait until I have used it for a while before knowing if the interphase searches within sites is better ... but I suspect it will be.
Took about an hour Barry. Good speeds here too. The only thing I lost was my "background block colour". Soon restored in settings. When it first offers the task bar icons to launch a browser it looks a bit different. There are two extra that are apps called widget and desktop. You can slide these along to your chosen position(next to file explorer or microsoft store for instance) and the windows pane icon is gone from the bottom left corner. It is now a fetching shade of blue and has been moved to centre stage. When you access that feature the layout is altered but very well set up. All headings now have an icon too. Like it very much. Bear in mind that different systems are going to have different layouts. Tablets, phones, laptops, and desktops will all have differences obvs.
So did I, Wolf but I really do think that Windows improves with every release although I never used Vista. I started with W3 which was a huge improvement on whatever it was I had been using back in the day when we had to format floppies and park hard drives and used system command far more than we do now.
