Unlocking the World of Visual Modifications with Windows 11: Here's What it's Capable of Doing!

If you have been using a Windows computer for a long time, at some point in time, the thought of customization might have crossed your mind.

By default, the user interface on a Windows PC is pretty standard. A simple taskbar, a simple start menu, the same old windows, and the same old icons. Even if you change the color gradient and theme, there’s not much difference to observe or enjoy.

As a result, most Windows PC users have spent years waiting for Microsoft (News - Alert) to present more visual customization options. And alas! It has happened with the new Windows 11 OS.

The all-new Windows 11 OS offers its users a wide variety of visual customization options. And in this blog, we are discussing how you can make the most out of these features. So, let’s get started.

1. A new range of wallpapers

The wallpapers on your PC largely determine how your computer looks and feels when you use it.

For example, if you use bright wallpaper, you may feel more energetic, while if the wallpaper has a cool color, you may wish to relax a little.

Plus, your choice of wallpaper can also determine the feel of the entire UI if you adjust these settings.

Windows 11 brings in a wide range of all-new wallpapers. So you can explore your options and pick the one that best suits your design preferences. Also, if you are bored of the pre-loaded wallpapers, you can use third-party websites such as Unsplash to download interesting pictures sourced from across the globe and use them as wallpapers.

2. A new Taskbar and Start menu

The Taskbar and Start menu have long been around on Windows PCs.

From keeping all the open windows in one place to allowing users to access their most used applications quickly, Taskbar and Start menu do many jobs.

The new Windows 11 OS brings about a new version of the Taskbar and Start menu. Their look and feel have changed, and the layout of the Start menu has changed.

Apart from this, the new Start menu has a few more customizable buttons that users can change according to their preferences.

3. Use Launchers as per your taste

If you have ever used an Android (News - Alert) smartphone, you might as well have come across launcher applications.

These programs don’t perform any additional functions but act as a new outfit for the user interface. In simpler words, a launcher application enables users to customize the UI on their device without replacing the operating system.

The new Windows 11 OS allows users to use the launchers of their choice and take Windows OS customizations to another level.

For example, users who Try OneLaunch can make multiple visual modifications to their Windows PC.

From changing the way, your desktop looks to using a different design to align icons and exploring the world of themes available with OneLaunch, and you can do it all.

4. New Windows themes

For visual enthusiasts, Microsoft has introduced a new line of themes with the Windows 11 OS.

Using the themes on Windows 11 will help you synchronize your customizations, considering all the visual aspects. For example, you can set your Windows 11 theme to follow the color pallets of your wallpaper(s).

Apart from this, you can also include your favorite apps to follow this color pallet when you open them.

To access these features, simply open your Windows settings, select Personalization, and click on the Themes menu.

From here, you can pick from different pre-loaded themes and customize your PC’s user interface.
