For starters, there’s a big visual overhaul, be it in terms of window designs, start menu or themes and wallpapers. Apart from that there will be new icons, animations and widgets as well. Here we have listed down a complete list of changes coming in Windows 11 based on the leaked ISO.
An all-new setup screen
Windows 11 now is expected to get an all-new modern looking setup screen with a redesigned layout and a new Blue animation. There will be no Cortana voice from the setup process.
New startup sound
A new startup sound will also accompany Windows 11.
Just like with every new version of Windows, Microsoft will add a bunch of new wallpapers.
Redesigned Windows Start Menu
The biggest change will be in the Start Menu. In the leaked ISO, the Start Menu is located at the centre of the taskbar. Keeping that aside, the new Start Menu also looks more minimalistic and feels well laid out as well.
Windows 11 will also get some cool new animations for minimising and maximising a window.
New icons, new split-view options and more
Windows 11 will also get new icons, new split-view options and some other visual overhaul.
