Since the launch of Windows 10 back in July 2015, Microsoft has been adamant that this was its last version of its popular Windows operating system.

However, every six months a new feature release of Windows 10 has been rolled out and I guess there comes a stage when after a dozen or more updates, a new fresh look is needed, together launching  lots of new features and functions, hence the recent Windows 11 announcement in June 2021.

It looks like the new version will be released sometime in late October 2021 and will be a free update for existing Windows users. Though it looks like your also need a Microsoft account when installing it on or upgrading your PC or tablet.

Windows 11 has feature improvements across the board with Microsoft promising that updates will be 40% smaller, and touting Windows 11 as "the most secure release yet".

The “taskbar” is optimized for touch as well as mouse peripherals and is now renamed the “dock”.

Most newish computers and laptops should be able to run Windows 11 and we will provide you with more information nearer the time – exciting times are no doubt ahead!
