Microsoft explained the design improvements in Windows 11
The Microsoft design team recently issued an article explaining the various design improvements that the team has made in Windows 11. In fact, the focus is on why such a design is necessary.
At design time, the Microsoft design team conducted 85+ studies and tens of thousands of tests and interacted with fans and enthusiasts to seek design improvements.
Microsoft said that the new design concept focuses on calm technology and increasing emotional connections, making the Windows 11 user interface more flexible and no longer daunting to users.
Microsoft explained that the key theme is calm technology that makes our lives really better. For this reason, the team has softened the Windows 11 user interface.
Including a more agile interface and transition animations to allow users to get close, rather than the horizontal and vertical as the Windows 10 system user interface is daunting. The Microsoft design team claims that the new user interface can increase emotional connections.
The start menu is now moved from the left side of the screen to the middle of the screen, which is cleaner and simpler and prioritizes the applications and documents people use.
This new start menu can also adapt to various screen sizes, and features animations to add fun to the interaction, while Microsoft also provides some very suitable elements.
The elements here refer to the wallpapers built-in by the Microsoft design team in Windows 11. This type of wallpaper emphasizes the center setting, so the main patterns are centered.
The Microsoft design team also emphasized that Windows 11 will remember user preferences and provide recently used applications and documents and recommendations in the start menu.
The new design language adopted by Windows 11 makes the various experiences of Windows 11 even better, including all kinds of rounded sharp corners and a warmer color palette.
Microsoft hopes to build a more user-friendly and approachable language in this way, avoid hindering users’ work efficiency, and make it easier for users to use.
Finally, Microsoft also said that the company hopes that Windows 11 is not only a desktop operating system but also a structure that can be integrated into our daily lives.
