Windows 11 is the first version created for a hybrid world, “where we work from home, in the office, and basically everywhere else,” Dispensa said.
To accomplish this, Windows 11 is designed to remove distractions for workers. The operating system presents new Snap Layouts through the windows maximize button to more precisely size a window on the screen. Apps can now be easily put into split-screen mode, with options for two-, three-, four- or six-window layouts.
The Snap Assist tool can also guide users on possible arrangements for multiple windows. Snap’s three-column layouts require “a screen that is 1,920 effective pixels or greater in width,” according to Microsoft.
With the Snap Group feature, when a user needs to undock their PC and leave their desk, the windows on their monitor will minimize, with everything coming back once the user re-docks.
Windows 11 tools that can cut down on distraction include smart cameras that blur background movement and settings that minimize visual clutter, according to Microsoft.
