Microsoft officially announced Windows 11, expected to be released in fall of 2021, and it is a very large update with a completely new look. Here’s everything you need to know about windows 11 before upgrading.

 

1. The Start Menu

The start menu is getting a completely new look. For starters, it’s getting moved to the center of the task bar, however, this can be changed in settings.

 

2. Settings

The settings menu is also getting a major upgrade in Windows 11. Along with a new, reorganized layout, you also get more colorful icons and a new navigation system on the left side, like the control panel.

3. Support for Android Apps

In Windows 11, Android apps will run natively and will be downloadable from Amazon’s app store inside the new Windows Store included in the new OS. Microsoft says Android apps can be pinned to the taskbar or snapped alongside traditional Windows apps.

4. Other big upgrades

Some more major improvements in Windows 11 include:

  • A redesigned Action Center and taskbar
  • Rounded corners on everything
  • New touch controls and gestures
  • Updated File Explorer
  • Revamped Windows Store

 

 

What you lose with Windows 11

 

For all the great new features and redesigned interface, there are some Windows 10 features that are getting changed or removed should you choose to upgrade to Windows 11.

 

  • Windows 11 Start Menu: In Windows 11, the Start Menu only allows you to dock the Taskbar to the bottom of the screen, which means that if you previously preferred to dock the Taskbar at the top or side of the screen, you will no longer be able to.
  • Cortana: Cortana will no longer be included in the first boot or pinned to the Taskbar.
  • Tablet Mode: Tablet mode is removed, and new functionality and capability has been added for keyboard attach and detach postures.
  • Timeline: Timeline has been removed.
  • Touch Keyboard: Will no longer dock and undock keyboard layouts on screen sized 18 inches and larger.
  • Wallet: Has been removed.

 

The changes and removals that come with Windows 11 aren’t big and probably aren’t dealbreakers for most people, however, there are a few features being removed that might prove to be an inconvenience if they are features that you used often. If this is you, then maybe sit this one out.

Testimonials

 

Ultimate It Guys has been the Cameron Housing Authority’s IT company since 2017. I couldn’t ask for a better one. The staff is quick to help & very professional. They will work with you until your problem has been solved. We will definitely use them in the future.

Cameron MO Housing Authority

The Nevada Housing Authority has been doing business with Ultimate IT Guys since June 2016. Prior to that time, we struggled with good tech support and did not have anyone in house capable of taking on that responsibility. We have had a very positive experience with Ultimate IT Guys and their tech support staff.

They make themselves available anytime for the support and training needed and keep us with the most recent updates. I have enjoyed the webinars and now have access for myself and the staff to those webinars that we miss. The value for the service provided by Ultimate IT Guys is worth a look at for your agency. You will find them customer service driven, have the ability to problem solve and easy to communicate with.

Hi I am Joan Wright, I am the Executive Director at McGregor Housing Authority. I have been with Ultimate IT Guys since 2017.

We are from a small community and we just don’t have much for computer support in this area. I met him at Texas Housing Association and he has done a wonderful job for us. His service is 24/7, all I have to do is pick up a phone and call him. One of his support staff is always happy to work with us. I have all my faith in Ultimate IT Guys they do a wonderful job.

McGregor Housing Authority

We have been very pleased and impressed with the services and product advice we have received from Ultimate IT Guys.

They provided a big picture view of our business risk, then broke it down into actionable details through the assessments and the reports they provided to us. All very professional and informative but still in layman's language in a way that anyone can understand it.

Ultimate IT Guys have truly been a big help to Trinidad Housing Authority for the past 5 years. From keeping our computer systems up to date and virus free, to their excellent customer service. When we have an issue with our computer software or hardware, there is never a wait and they are always there to help, and at very reasonable prices.

I highly recommend the Ultimate IT Guys to anyone who needs IT support services. They have consistently given us excellent service at a reasonable price.

They know the needs of PHA’s, and are particularly well suited to filling the IT needs of housing authorities who are not large enough to have their own in-house staff. They can do virtually all the work they need to do remotely, so there is no waiting for an IT tech to show up. Our experience with The Ultimate IT Guys has all been positive, they have been a pleasure to do business with!

Executive Director
Overton Texas Housing Authority

I am very pleased with the service Mr. Davis and his team at Ultimate IT Guys provide. He is professional, thorough, and supports our industry with a high degree of integrity. He is available and has always helped me with IT problems in a timely manner. I feel I am very knowledgeable about technology and could do some of the same tasks Mr. Davis performs, however it is beneficial to me that my staff can call him with issues so we can be more productive and focus on housing needs instead of computer/technology related issues and back-ups.

I would highly recommend Mr. Davis and his company.

Thank you,

Kimberly Gholson
Executive Director
