For each build, we’ve included the date of its release and a link to Microsoft’s announcement about it. A Windows launch isn’t the end a process — it’s really just the beginning. As with Windows 10, Microsoft continually works on improving Windows 11 by fixing bugs, releasing security patches, and occasionally adding new features. Most of the work on Windows 11 went toward redesigning the interface rather than building wholly new features, so—as I mentioned above—the OS is more familiar than you may expect. It borrows ideas from Chrome OS, though you can still place app icons on the desktop background, which Google’s lightweight desktop OS doesn’t allow.
You can set a timer of 30 minutes, select a playlist, and sync with Microsoft To do and tick off all of your tasks as you go. It’s a neat idea, though it’s not something I’ve personally found use for. There’s also the new Notepad, which has also been updated with a brand new modern design that matches the rest of Windows 11.
Screenshots On Windows have made it easier to capture photos that can be used as references in the future. To capture the screenshots on Windows, use all of the methods listed above. Although your HP laptop offers a number of ways to take a snapshot, it may not be as effective as using a tool that offers a variety of rich options. With the help of Markup Hero, accessing, editing, annotating, and sharing your documents seem effortless. It also has four different modes to take a screenshot. You can take a screenshot in a rectangular fashion which is the most common way to do it.
You can either double-click on the app’s desktop icon or you can launch it from the Windows Start menu. When the app opens, you’ll be able to see all of the software tools in its main window. Click on the New Snipping icon, in the Screen Sketch’s ribbon, and proceed to designate the area of the screen you’d like to capture. In addition to Print Screen, Windows 7 introduced a screenshot application called Snipping Tool. Snipping Tool can be used to capture a screen shot, or snip, of any object on your screen, and then annotate, save, or share the image.
If all that leaves you a bit baffled, you can download a tool from Microsoft to check if your PC is compatible with the updated operating system. The Windows PC Health Check app will scan your system and give you either the green light to download Windows 11, or tell you why your computer is not suitable for the new operating system. However, not all machines will be Visit capable of running the software well. To figure out which camp your device falls into, you’ll need to compare the minimum system requirements with your own machine. If you aren’t seeing a notification that you have a Windows update available, you may have to wait a few weeks to get to the top of the queue. Microsoft said it would offer the upgrade to eligible new devices before pushing it out through the Windows Download update service.

Many applications won’t run under Linux; this depends on the programs that are used on Windows, and programs such as WINE may help, but there is a good chance that some programs can’t be run at all. The official disclaimer even states that damages are not covered under the manufacturer warranty and that PCs will no longer be supported in any way.
