Microsoft announces Windows 11 and promises a great gaming experience. The update for the operating system should be available at the end of the year. As expected, Microsoft announced Windows 11 on Thursday. According to Microsoft, it should be the “best Windows for gaming”. You can find out when the operating system will be available and how you can upgrade here. Windows 11 will offer some changes from Windows 10. A few of these adjustments were leaked earlier this Monday. The changes include, for example, the central alignment of the start menu, which was previously always located in the lower-left corner. A snap layout is also introduced, which makes it easier to place individual windows in the corner of the screen. Windows can easily take up half of the screen. Skype must also give way and make room for Microsoft Teams. For those looking to upgrade their computer to Windows 11, there is good news as the upgrade will in itself be free. However, before the update, you should check whether your PC can fully process the new operating system, as Windows 11 has some higher hardware requirements. To do this, users simply use the PC Health Check app published by Microsoft.
