 5 New Features of Windows 11 You Should Use

5 New Windows 11 Features You Should Be Using Whether you've been using Windows 11 for a while now or you're just starting out with a new Windows 11 PC, there are some useful new features that you might have missed. Here are 5 cool features you should be using.


1 Quick Settings Menu 

One of the nicest new features in Windows 11 is the Quick Settings menu, which allows you to quickly change the system volume, brightness, Wi-Fi settings, power options, and more. It replaces the Action Center of Windows 10, and to use it, press Ctrl + A on your keyboard or click the volume and Wi-Fi icons in the right corner of the taskbar. When they pop up, you'll see a variety of buttons that let you control the sides of your computer, and you can customize the menu by clicking the pencil icon in the lower right corner of the menu.

 


2: New Snap List 

The Snap feature, which allows you to quickly resize windows to pre-selected areas of the screen without overlapping, is not a new feature in Windows 11, but the Snap menu is handy, letting you choose from six different window layouts with beautiful ones for your reference, and to use it, swipe your cursor mouse over the Maximize button (the box in the upper-right corner of the window's title bar next to the "X") and then click on the section of the format you'd like to use, and the window will instantly snap into position.


3. Windows Terminal 

Windows Terminal was available for Windows 10 but comes with Windows 11 built in, which is a great way to get to the command line. In fact, you can switch between Windows PowerShell, Command Prompt, Azure Cloud Shell, and even Ubuntu Linux if you have a Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) installed. To use Windows Terminal, find it in the Start menu or right-click the Start button and select Windows Terminal in the menu that appears.


4: New Themes and Backgrounds 

Windows 11 includes many beautiful new themes and more than ten new wallpapers to choose from. Wallpapers give your PC a cool and contemporary look Themes allow you to quickly switch between styles depending on your mood; to change the desktop background, press Windows + i (to open Settings Windows) and go to Personalization > Background; and to change the themes, open Settings and go to Personalization > Themes Click on the thumbnail of the theme you want and it will switch instantly.


5 Microsoft Teams 

If your work or group uses Microsoft Teams to coordinate and communicate with each other, you'll be glad to know that Teams is deeply integrated into Windows 11 thanks to a chat feature that you can access by clicking the purple word bubble icon on your taskbar, and you can also use Teams to collaborate, share calendars, and chat video too, so it can be a great productivity tool.
