Now there are no more doubts: Windows 11 is a reality. The new Windows, which will be presented by Microsoft on June 24th, in recent days had already been the subject of rumors and news, from those relating to a change of nomenclature to those on the clues left by Microsoft. A few hours ago, a post on the Chinese portal Tieba Baidu showed the world the first screenshots in Windows 11, making the various rumors even more real and confirming the name.
From the screenshots that we report below, the writing is clearly visible Windows 11 Pro, which also confirms the presence of different versions of the operating system, exactly as happened with previous generations. There is also news regarding the build, which we see to be number 21996.1.
From the images (from the Chinese portal and The Verge) it is also possible to see the new user interface, very similar to that of the now deleted Windows 10X. The UI appears simplified, with the bar applications and the start button in the center (which can also be put back on the left), new icons and rounded corners, however there seems to be no news for the Microsoft Store. In the new interface, i also return widget, inserted in what appears to be a dedicated area.
Apparently, however, to be leaked on the net are not only some images of Windows 11, but also the ISO of a preliminary version of the operating system. The operating system image has a weight of 4.54GB and can be downloaded at this address (several other mirrors have been found on the net), however we have not tested it ourselves and we therefore recommend that you pay attention and download it. (and try it) at your own risk.
the version of Windows 11 leaked on the net has been tested by the colleagues of The Verge, who have confirmed its authenticity and sharing some of the screenshots you see in this article. Among the novelties there also seems to be a new Xbox App, integrated by Microsoft directly into the operating system, which offers a renewed user interface and allows you to quickly access the Game Pass library.
Also on Baidu, user Zealer shared additional screenshots, this time related to the notification center and some configuration settings. Also in this case we see a renewed graphics, in accordance with the guidelines of Microsoft’s Fluent Design.
Zealer has also uploaded what should be the two to the Chinese portal official Windows 11 wallpapers, present in light and dark versions, probably in combination with the light theme and the dark theme of the operating system.
In short, it seems that the new Windows has fewer and fewer secrets: the appointment is next June 24, when Microsoft at 5 pm Italian time will reveal it to the world.
