Apps downloaded from the Store have been tested for security and family safety. Android apps will also be available on the Microsoft Store through the Amazon Appstore and can be used directly on your PC from the taskbar or Start Menu.
Additional Windows 11 Pro Features
The Pro version of Windows 11 includes all the features that Windows 11 Home offers plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices can also join domains and the Azure Active Directory and have access to Enterprise device management features. Windows 11 Pro does not require a Microsoft Account or an internet connection when setting up for the first time.
Next Level Gaming
Windows 11 is designed to deliver smooth, immersive gaming experiences with DirectX 12 Ultimate providing realistic graphics at high frame rates while Auto HDR automatically adjusts your game's lighting and contrast for high dynamic range. DirectStorage technology streamlines data access to better take advantage of high-speed devices such as NVMe solid-state drives and directly from graphics cards without dragging down the CPU, which minimizes load times while helping to reduce artifacts such as texture popping. Topping it all off is Xbox Game Pass integration, which provides you with access to a massive library of games with a membership subscription.
A New Start Position
Windows 11 has been completely redesigned from its predecessor to emphasize productivity, creativity, and ease of use. The customizable Start Menu is now at the center of the taskbar and utilizes the cloud, allowing you to quickly find and access recent files, regardless of what platform or device was previously used to view them. The streamlined Start Menu design also lets you pin apps and recent files in addition to powering down the system.
Making Productivity a Snap
Multitask with speed and efficiency with the ability to snap apps side by side. Snap Layouts and Snap Groups help to keep your windows organized using different layouts that are designed to fully optimize your screen space, no matter its size and resolution. Windows 11 also remembers their positions, so you can resume from where you left off when selecting Snap Groups from the task bar, allowing you to switch between both individual applications and entire projects. Snap Layouts are also automatically restored when docking laptops with external monitors.
Microsoft Teams Integration
Stay connected with friends, family, coworkers, and clients with Microsoft Teams Chat integrated onto the Windows 11 taskbar. With a touch, you can connect to your contacts via text, voice, and video, regardless of whether they're using Windows, Android, or iOS devices. You can also communicate with those who don't have the Teams app installed using two-way SMS messaging.
Adapting to You
The Adaptive Input feature automatically optimizes the Windows 11 interface to however you prefer to interact with your device, whether it's using a mouse, keyboard, touch, voice, or handwriting.
