Discover What is to Come with Windows 12

While Windows 11 is only just celebrating its first birthday, we’re already hearing our first rumors about what Windows 12 will have in store.

There’s no rush for the time being – we won’t see this new version until the back end of 2024 – but we love to be ready for what’s coming next!

So here’s what we know so far:

The details about what new features that will be offered in Windows 12 aren’t super clear to us yet. Microsoft is being quiet about what they’re planning. But we’ve done some looking into how it could look. And what we’ve found is that its design will be quite different.

If our research is correct, we’ll see a floating taskbar dock and a search bar taking top-center position. The widgets panel and Action Centre will move to the top of the screen instead of the bottom.

We don’t expect any drastic changes to Windows 12 when it comes to hardware.

What we do know is that Window 12 is unlikely to cause the same headaches that arose with the launch of Windows 11.

That’s because more PCs will be compatible straight out of the box!

That being said, some of the security hardware required by Windows 11 will likely become even more needed as Microsoft keeps its focus firmly on security.

Above all, we’re expecting to see a lot more smaller improvements that will make a large difference to useability. Making Windows 12 stable and bug free will be a big priority – good news for all business users!

But, for now there will likely be more updates in the coming months. Make sure you and your business are regularly checking for updates.

And if you haven’t yet made the move to Windows 11, now could be a great time! We can help with that. So, if you’re thinking about the upgrade, just get in touch with us at Itechra.
