    Imagine going from DOS or Win3.1 to Win95.....having to learn an entirely new way to use your computer. Anyone that went through that, can easily adapt to whatever design changes MS makes.

    I've have my taskbar shortcuts all shifted to the center with TaskbarX for the last few months now and find it to be much more efficient for me. Took me about 30 minutes to get used to the change. Now I get a bit disoriented when I'm running updates on my son's computer.

    Where have you been the last 9 years? That's been the hallmark of UI design at MS since Win8 launched. That's why I've have a "god mode" icon on my desktop since 2012..... used to have icons for restart and shutdown as well.

    Everyone has their own opinion. I didn't and still don't see a single reason to run Win10 over Win8.... If Win10 does everything you want, exactly how you want, without relying on 3rd party software....stick with it. Win10 is going to get at least some of the features that Win11 will have. All you'll really be missing are the UI updates and Android apps.

    I started putting shortcuts to restart and power off on my taskbar or desktop back during Vista and carried that through Win8.1. Was more a time saver for me than anything else. Just a single click to restart or shutdown.

    I still prefer it over W10 or W11.... MS is just trying too hard to bury settings.

    Well i still don't think combining dev and release builds in one thread is a good idea.... So what do you want , I can make your thread the release build (so you won't have to update it as frequently) , or keep it as it is.

    Nope. There are zero reasons thus far. It's basically just a questionable UI reskin with zero new features.

    Windows 11 basically just a re-skin of Windows 10.

    But new features will added from time to time to Windows 11 apps.
    Currently following apps already update to new version specifically for Windows 11 only.
    Need update from Microsoft Store after you install Windows 11.
    • Clock
    • Snipping Tool
    • Photos
    • Paint
    • Your Phone
    • Microsoft Store
    Beside this, following is confirmed working better in Windows 11.
    • All open apps will follow and remember where you place for multi monitor setup. This is the most important update for me. No more messy open apps after you wake from sleep.
    • Auto HDR for SDR games, some do striking, if dislike can manually turn off for games per games.
    • HDR finally work perfectly, no issue like Windows 10, for example screen dimmer after out from certain games or movies.
    • DirectX 12 Ultimate support (required RTX 30xx series GPU).

    Scroll down the page a little and there is a section with the 'updated' specs needed.

    Apps will be available via the Amazon store. Does anyone even use that?

    I have no idea what this even means....

    5G is cellular internet connection...same as a smartphone. It requires a 5G capable modem because that's the only way to connect to 5G cellular towers.

    Anyone that has an Amazon Fire device uses the Amazon app store.

    I went ahead and "upgraded" to W11 last night. For ME, it's noticeably snappier than W10 was. Of course, that could be caused by numerous variables so, ymmv.... My only gripe so far is that I can't pin Windows Update to the start menu....and the width of the start menu while displaying the "all apps" list, which is purely an aesthetical issue for me.

    Anyway entertaining the thought of trying an in-place upgrade out. Has anyone went from W10 to 11 in-place and if so, was the process smooth?

    Do I need to do anything else in BIOS besides enable fTPM and Secure Boot prior?

    I'm running on a 10 to 11 build, been back and forward until the latest few builds and now release which runs stable on my end.
    There where some issues with removal of some apps, icons where still in start, installing and then uninstalling them again did solve it.
    Also had to run an app repair once:
    Code:
    Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.SecHealthUI -AllUsers | Reset-AppxPackage
    Windows 10 to 11 also downgraded my Nvidia driver, so had to fix that, rest was fine though.
