Windows 11 Design Leaks Ahead of June 24 Launch

Release Windows 11, Announced Windows 11, Announced Windows 11 Design, Microsoft Windows 11 Update

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella at the Build 2021 conference said that the next update will be ‘one of the most significant updates to Windows of the past decade' and it will ‘unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators.


Reports suggest that Microsoft will be releasing the next update as Windows 11, leaving the Windows 10 nomenclature behind. The Windows 11 update is expected to be a significant one and is likely to bring an overhaul of the Windows app store as well. The new leak suggests that Windows 11 could also have a new widget icon in the taskbar.


Tom Warren has leaked screenshots of the design elements of Windows 11. A lot of design inspiration is taken from the Windows 10X that was originally built for dual screens but was scrapped later. The app icons appear in the centre of the taskbar, the tray area has been cleaned up, and a new Start button and menu have been incorporated. You can place the app icons and the Start menu in the centre of the taskbar or move them to the left side. There are no Live Tiles in the Start Menu. It has a simplified design with pinned apps, recent files, and shut down and restart options.

Screenshots show that Windows 11 may also come with a system-wide dark mode. The user interface is cleaner. It includes redesigned app icon and rounded corners overall. The new Windows app store is not reflecting yet but should be included in the final version.




The launch event for the new Windows is scheduled for June 24 at 11am Eastern Time
