Windows 11 My Thoughts and Feelings :thinking:

Yesterday the 31th of July, the new Windows 11 Beta update came available to my Personal Laptop. It took around an hour to download and my first thoughts were a totally redesigned experience even down to the Updater, instead of the dated update design before we have this simple looking black screen with the update percent on it.

The Windows Login page has also been updated, we now see a sleek clean shaded black box and more clear text. This is honestly my favourite Windows by far!

The new settings page is a great addition to the OS, it brings another level of simplicity! We now have all the menu shortcuts on the Left Sidebar and the new windows update system is truly a nice experience when using..

Now for the Bugs...

Yes, you've guessed it. With any new Windows OS there will be your share of the great Microsoft bugs. The ones I've stumbled across so far is the Install Bug.
When you try to install app.exe for example, instead of saying Yes or No to allow admin permissions it will show Remember Me and C, it seems that the Remember Me button means Yes and C means No as when ive tried both the options they have that result.

Should you download it?

Yes, its still a great update. But before you download note you may have to work out a couple of bugs but most features ive tried work fine and the Laptop has some great performance boosts since the update. The only issue Microsoft need to fix it the Install Admin Menu / Admin Allow Menu but im sure that will get fixed soon... You will first need to switch to the Beta Channel for Windows 11 to be available to you..
