What to expect during the Windows 11 launch event
If you missed the latest tech news, the big M is most likely preparing a completely new operating system called Windows 11, faster and better than its predecessor. Despite the fact that a few years ago Microsoft suggested that Windows 10 will be its last OS, things have changed.

- A completely new set of Wallpapers
- A different sound scheme, with brand-new startup sounds
- Redesigned Start Menu with more customization options
- More screen options, including top/bottom split screen
- A native Dark Mode that can be enabled directly from Settings
