Key notes

  • Even though Windows 11 made it a long way since its early testing days, some still aren't happy. 
  • It's not because of a system-threatening error but related to the operating system's design.
  • People already felt that Windows 11 was just the previous OS with a new skin and nothing more.
  • The great majority of users feel that the UI design choice that Microsoft made are very poor.

Yes, we know that opinions on the matter are very diverse, but we know that users are split into 3 major categories when it comes to Windows 11.

The ones that love everything about the new OS are the first and biggest category of them all. The second one is full of people that, even though enjoy Windows 11, constantly critique certain aspects of it.

So, the third and final category contains everyone that totally dislikes the latest operating system and would want nothing to do with it whatsoever.

People from the secon

People from the second and third categories are always poking at the OS, trying to uncover new glitches, performance problems, or UI inconsistencies.

And when you are so busy trying to find the wrong in everything, watch out, because you might actually succeed.

The latest UI-related topic on various forums and social media platforms is now the compression animation for Windows 11.

Yes, we are talking about the tiny window that pops up when you are trying to compress files on your device.

A lot of Windows 11 users are harshly criticizing this small OS detail, and claim that the UI for this process hasn’t been updated since back in the day when Windows 7 was king.

Although not a system-threatening issue or some glitch bound to erase all data on your PC, these visual inconsistencies are a real turn-off for a lot of people.

This really acts like gasoline thrown on top of the Windows 11 is just Windows 10 with a new skin and it’s worse than Windows 8 fire.

As we said, this does not represent a major issue or something to be deeply concerned about, but some really don’t appreciate the lack of design consistency.

However, we’re sure that things will begin to settle and more beneficial changes will be applied to Windows 11 so that everyone will be happy.

After all, Microsoft’s new operating system is only officially a bit over two weeks old, so there were bound to be some things wrong with it.
