What Is Bad About Windows 11?

What Is Bad About Windows 11?

Not only Windows 11 lack of attractiveness, but it’s also highly limiting and simplistic, making it a non-productive operating system. Let’s look at some of the issues in Windows 11:




Start Menu: This is the start menu. When you click on it, it not only appears like it’s been butchered from the start, but you can’t even change the size or create named groups or folders. Also gone are the live tiles. Perhaps not many people were using it, but you may like it and enjoy the weather app that provides real-time weather information right away. As previously stated, you cannot adjust the start menu, which means that if you have a tiny screen, it will take up a lot of space, and if you have a larger screen, it will appear even smaller in comparison to Windows 10 Start, which you can resize and personalize as desired.




Rounded Corners: The corners are rounded. It’s a question of personal preference, but we find these rounded edges to be quite unappealing, especially when you have a window for some program installation with conventional, non-rounded corners and your OS window with rounded corners behind it. Overall, it appears to be a messed-up design.


Taskbar: The start menu isn’t the end of Microsoft’s oversimplification. In Windows 11, the taskbar has likewise been castrated. Normally, you can obtain task manager by right-clicking on the taskbar, but it’s absent with Windows 11. In fact, many items are absent, with the exception of the “taskbar settings” button, which leads you to the taskbar’s settings, which also have extremely limited customization options. You can no longer slide the taskbar to the left, right, or top of your screen. Small taskbar icons are likewise unavailable, as is the ability to mix taskbar icons. The ability to drag and drop programs into the taskbar is also lacking. If you don’t like it centered, the only thing you can change is move the start menu and pinned icons to the left. That is all there is to it.


The voids: In Windows 11, the space between files and folders appears to be significantly larger. As a result of the wide gaps in your screen, you receive fewer items on your screen, which is both unsightly and unproductive.

It is no longer simple to open a file’s folder location: You might use Windows 10 to search for a file and then select “Open File Location.” This opens the folder where the item is stored, allowing you to drag & drop files as attachments into emails. For example, if you needed to send a PDF to a public relations representative, You’d put the file’s name into Search and then select “Open Item Location,” which would open your Documents folder and highlight the file you required. You could just drag and drop the file into an email and send it. When you right-click a file on Windows 11, however, the “Open File Location” option is no longer available. Instead, you’re offered only two choices: “Copy Full Path” or “Open.” 


It’s not easy to change your default browser: In Windows 11, Microsoft went all-out to force you to use its browser, Edge. It’s really difficult to change your browser. Windows 11 presents you with a long list of file types and asks you to choose your favorite software for each of them. The Edge browser, for example, opens.pdf,.mht,.svg, and a slew of other file formats by default. To move from Edge to Chrome or another browser, you’d have to go through a huge list of file types and replace them with Chrome or another browser. They went to great lengths to make switching to a different browser as difficult as possible.
