Microsoft prepares Windows 11 for public rollout

Windows 11 release rollout

This year’s first Windows 11 release has been christened for
October 5 release and it is now being prepared for public
rollout. Microsoft has started the final work to prepare
Windows 11 version 21H2 (October 2021 Update) for the release
and testers can now download the update from the Release
Preview Channel.

Windows 11 has finally hit the Release Preview Channel and it
can now be tested on the primary devices as long as you’ve
compatible drivers installed. Note that a little bit of
tweaking is left, so there may be minor issues in
Windows 11 Build 22000.194 – which is being shipped to
testers in Release Preview.

Microsoft is planning to improve the overall experience of the
Windows 11 version 21H2 in the coming weeks as part of the tech
firm’s normal servicing cadence.

Windows 11 release

It is worth noting that Windows 11 is currently being offered
to Release preview testers via Microsoft’s seeker scheme.

As you can see in the above screenshot, you need to visit
Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and check
for updates, and manually select the “download and install”
option for Windows 11 after signing up for the Release Preview
Channel.

If you select “stay on Windows 10 for now”, you’ll get Windows
10 version 21H2 (October 2021 Update).

Those who have compatible hardware will be able to get Windows
11 upgrade as a simple Windows Update, so the process would be
straightforward. Windows 11 size is likely to be around 3GB as
it delivers a lot of changes than Windows 10 feature updates
released in the last few years.

In terms of changes, Windows 11 includes a new look for the
Start menu, a new notification center, a new Microsoft Store,
new inbox apps, and more.

Redesigned Start Menu without live tiles and modern
(downgraded) taskbar is one of the biggest changes coming to
the desktop operating system. Microsoft isn’t done improving
the Start Menu experience and it’s working on a new feature
called ‘Sign-in options’ which will appear above the power
options.

Windows 11 rollout plans

Even if your device is ready for Windows 11, you may not see
this feature update on October 5. The update will be initially
offered to select devices only. If you can’t wait for Windows
11, you’ll be able to download and install it manually using
programs like Media Creation Tool and Update Assistant.

If the slow rollout proves successful then it may be a few
weeks before we see Windows 11 for more devices.

Microsoft officials have confirmed that several updates will be
released after October 5 to fix the remaining issues in the
operating system.
