Today, we’re going to share with you a 12-minute video from Windows Central that will give you some idea of what’s coming with Windows 11 and what it will look like.

But before you watch the video, we want to remind all Windows 10 users that you don’t have to upgrade to Windows 11 when it’s released. Windows 10 will be supported until October 14, 2025.  And for Windows 10 users who do want to upgrade to Windows 11 when it’s released later this year, the upgrade will be free. And there’s a lot of information floating around that tells us that Windows 11 will be free for those still using Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 as well.  

If you’re wondering what the big deal about Windows 11 is, what it looks like, and why it’s so different Microsoft is calling it Windows 11, watch the video from Windows Central below.

What do you think?  We’ll keep you updated on Windows 11 as more information becomes available.

    At this time, all I see is a skin and maybe some feature updates that were coming to Windows 10, probably. Microsoft may show more later for me to change my mind, but I don’t see anything that would make things easier on me (my opinion).

    To me, Windows 10 has been so unorganized, you have so many things that Microsoft has placed like an afterthought that just does not make sense where you find them (fix that Microsoft please).

    The start menu has been changed so many times, either Microsoft is not listening or who they are asking is just plain confused :=).

    On Windows 11, I would wait and see for those running local on the home version and see if you can still get the local account by unplugging and etc. I heard it did not work now “not sure about that”. Pro is fine in getting local but not home; there was still a way to do it in Pro. I’m going to be listening on that one. As I said that may not be true.

    It takes 4 to 5 years to make a stable Windows and Windows 10 is still not really stable to me. Now we are talking about Windows 11 with all these updates coming in again I would imagine. I want to wait and see what security comes with this Windows also. I guess we will see before or if I decide to put it on. In all fairness, Microsoft has not shown everything for us to see with Windows 11.

    Microsoft is a pain in the ‘you know what.’ I thought it was too good to be true that 10 would be ‘the last Windows.’
    They drive people crazy with their constant upgrades.
    I think they do so to keep their employees busy….

    Oh dear! What have Microsoft done? Just watched the video on the forthcoming Windows 11. I’ve always looked forward to any new windows edition, but this one – it looks like a complete nightmare – a complete mess. The boffins have certainly been hitting the bottle on this one. It’s ghastly.

    I like it, then I am in favor of anything new. I know why Microsoft does it, and people complain about the updates etc.
    It’s to sell sell sell, as well as keep people working.
    I checked my e mails this morning and lo and behold there were 9 new junk e mails, so the miscreants are keeping up why shouldn’t we. The 11 may be a safer, however I have Emsisoft and am fairly careful. I look forward to the next windows and learning about it.
    Thank you for keeping us updated safely.

    Thank you for showing this to us Cloudeight .
    I agree with Harry and Yvonne.
    Why can’t they leave well enough alone.
    Ted is probably a young fella and those younger people like change when it comes to electronics.
    As long as we don’t have to change till 2025, I’m leaving 10 on my computer till then.
    Thanks again TC.

    Can’t imagine why rounded corners on icons and pop-up windows are considered “super fun”.

    Trying to keep up with their competitors, not sure about it !

    I guess no one told these people that obviously never heard the old saying, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” adage! It must so boring to work there, that they figure they could come up with 30 different ways to screw everything up. “Hey, Microsoft, leave well enough alone.” Not impressed.

    I like some of the proposed new ways to navigate programs and control the desktop. Once one gets used to it, I believe it will make things a little easier. However, I’m sure most of this is just cosmetic and that the actual Windows program is pretty much unchanged. But it’s like the old saying, you can please some of the people all the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all the people all the time. I’m sure Microsoft would like to fill that last category, but it just ain’t going to happen in this life. With Windows we need to just go with the flow and quit complaining – it isn’t going to do any good anyway.
