Of all the changes found in Windows 11 (which is rolling out now) the biggest and most visible might be the revamped Start Menu. With a new home on the taskbar and a redesigned layout of apps and functions, Windows 11 has reimagined, and perhaps improved, this essential piece of the Microsoft experience.
The Start Menu is like the master control panel for your PC. It’s where you go to find the apps that you might not have already on your desktop or pinned to the taskbar, and it’s where you’ll find quick access to the settings menu and power controls.
The individual elements of the Start Menu may not be as advanced or detailed as you might want in a specific situation, but it’s a good starting point, and provides a quick portal to the tools you need at any given moment.
