Windows 11 has been let out of the bag.

Kevin Stratvert, Windows Insider and ex-Microsoft Program Manager. takes a look at the latest functionality.

We’ll look at the out of the box experience (OOBE) where you can configure how you’ll use your device and whether or not you want to use OneDrive. Then we’ll explore the new taskbar, the start menu with pinned apps and recommendations. We also look at changes to file explorer, widgets, and window snapping. All-in-all, Windows 11 offers a more modern and simple experience, while maintaining the power of Windows 10. The big question will be whether Microsoft has innovated enough to make the OS relevant again now that more and more users spend time in their browsers.

In this step-by-step tutorial, Kevin Stratvert teaches us how to get and use Microsoft PowerToys.

With Power Toys, use a color picker to get the HEX, RGB, etc. value for any color on your screen, snap windows using Fancy Zones, preview SVG and markdown files in File Explorer, resize images in bulk, rename files in bulk, remap keys and shortcuts, run apps using the PowerToys app launcher, and refer to a Windows key shortcut guide.

PowerToys is free to download and use on Windows 10 PCs.

Kevin Stratvert provides a step-by-step tutorial, learn how you can use Microsoft Hyper-V to create virtual machines.

Hyper-V enables running virtualized computer systems on top of a physical host.

These virtualized systems can be used and managed just as if they were physical computer systems, however they exist in virtualized and isolated environment.

Special software called a hypervisor manages access between the virtual systems and the physical hardware resources. Virtualization enables quick deployment of computer systems, a way to quickly restore systems to a previously known good state, and the ability to migrate systems between physical hosts.
