Images of the upcoming Windows have just been leaked on the Web. This is via Baidu, the Chinese search engine, that screenshots of the so-called Windows 11 are circulating. You can discover a new start menu and a new interface. These two elements are very similar to those used for the beginnings of Windows 10X. Designed for devices with two screens, this interface was ultimately not retained and, after the abandonment of Windows 10X, it returns with Windows 11.
The most striking change is in the taskbar. Its icons are grouped in the center, which is reminiscent of the famous dock of macOS. A new icon is available. It is called widgets and could be used to display tools for seeing at a glance.eye, the weather and other dynamic content. The notification area to the right of this bar also benefits from cleaning. The start menu also changes appearance with the absence of roof tiles whose interest has always been questionable.
Inspired by Windows 10X
We find in the Start menu, the applications pinned, the most recent files and direct access to restart or shutdown the system. It is still possible to move all the icons on the left part of the bar to find the atmosphere of previous Windows.

At the moment, these are only the first images and there should certainly be more changes to the program, but already the aesthetic differences are obvious. In addition, the firm is also in the process of overhauling its app store Windows so developers can to integrate any application compatible with the system. We won’t have to wait long to find out more, since Microsoft intends to organize an event on June 24 to unveil the new OS.
