Windows 11 prepares for its “consumer” release

The first version of Windows 11 will be available for download soon. The date is set for October 5. Meanwhile, the operating system is getting ready and a new step is being taken. Windows 11 21H2 is being offered through the Release Preview channel of the Insider Program.

This is the final test for this version. Windows 11 is now available on the Release Preview channel. It can be accessed from qualified computers, that is, it meets the minimum requirements by having compatible drivers. There are still some tweaks here and there, but we’re talking about “minor” issues for this 22000.194 release.

Microsoft still has two weeks to improve its overall experience in the operating system. Of course, it is planned to continue its development after that, making corrections in case of errors.

Then you have to manually select the Download and Install option (you must be registered in the Release Preview channel). If you select “Stay on Windows 10 for now”, you will get Windows 10 21H2 (October 2021 Update). If your PC has a compatible hardware configuration, Windows 11 will be offered in the form of a simple Windows Update. The download may take some time. Approximately 3 GB of data is required.

Windows 11 promises major changes. Perhaps the most striking fact is the interface with a more modern look. It goes through a new Start Menu, a new Action Center, central taskbar icons, a new Microsoft Store, and more. Microsoft is also ditching the dynamic tiles. The October 5 release will introduce all these new features, but Microsoft intends to continue improving its environment. For example, it is already planned to introduce the connection options that will appear above the power options.
