First and foremost, Windows 11 brings with it a host of new features. These include a new ‘light mode’, which makes it easier on the eyes when working in low-light conditions; an improved Start menu; and more granular control over updates.
There are also performance enhancements under the hood, making for a smoother overall experience. Including a speedy search function, with a similar performance to Apples ‘spotlight’. So if you’re still using Windows 10, now could be good time to upgrade – and we’ll show you how to do it below.
