A substantial update for Windows 11 was just released by Microsoft, transforming the operating system from a work in progress into something that is definitely worth upgrading to.
The fittingly called Windows 11 2022 Update includes a plethora of significant and minor changes to the overall user experience, in addition to the addition of brand new capabilities to entice PC users who are still committed to using Windows 10.
Where do we even begin with this? To start things off, the in-built video editor has been given a significant facelift and is now known as Clipchamp. This editor was developed for those who wish to cut up a few seconds of video for work or school projects but do not want to need a full-fledged editing suite to do it.
It places a strong emphasis on usability, with pre-made themes and effects being accessible at the click of a button.
Additionally, there is a brand-new function that goes by the name Windows Studio Effects. This software suite makes use of a proprietary form of artificial intelligence (AI), which helps to improve the video and audio quality of conversations made through Teams by filtering out background noise and automatically adding blur when it’s required.
Even the user interface of Microsoft Photos has been updated, making it simpler to navigate and offering a better overall experience.
The controls for notifications have been given a useful upgrade, and the update includes a new mode called Focus Session that automatically mutes all notifications across the entire system and conceals the badges on the taskbar.
That’s not the end of it. File Explorer now has tabs, similar to those seen in Internet browsers, and touch gestures can be used in Snap layouts.
Additionally, the operating system now provides suggested and complementary actions. When you copy a phone number, for instance, the system will offer to help you schedule a meeting by suggesting a date and time for your calendar.
