In addition to this, Microsoft also reportedly released a video teaser with a startup sound of the new Windows version hinting towards the Windows 11 launch. Last week, the design of Windows 11 was leaked online by a Chinese website 'Baidu' which showcased a revamped UI, new app icons, widgets, centralised Start menu and more.
In addition to this, Tom Warren of 'The Verge' managed to compile some information about the leaked OS and had shared a video of the same on his Twitter account. As per the video, the Start menu looks similar to the one available in Windows 10X. In terms of design, Windows 11 could not be much different from Windows 10 but it might come with a tweaked user interface. The new OS could get a simplified and centralised Start menu, live tiles replaced by standard icons that showcase recent files, pinned apps etc. Windows 11 is also likely to come loaded with new snap controls which will allow access from the maximize button on all apps. The Windows 11 is expected to be made available to Windows 10 users soon after its announcement.
