Unfortunately, with the launch of Windows 11 on the 5th, the possibility of downloading Android applications was not incorporated for the moment. That is why we must continue to wait officially, surely until the first quarter of next year. But in the meantime, there are already those who have achieved and proven to be capable of launching the Google Play Store itself on a Windows 11 computer.
They manage to install the Android Play Store in Windows 11
It has been the developer ADeltaX who has shown that it will be possible to have the Android Play Store within Windows 11. This user has been able to unlock the Google Play Store support. To do this, he had to make certain changes within the so-called “Windows Subsystem for Android”. Thanks to this, you can download virtually any application that we find within the store on a computer, which even makes it possible for us to log in to our account and access our applications to download them.

The script necessary for this is hosted on GitHub, but as we can imagine its use only suitable for advanced developers, so if it is not our case we must wait for Microsoft to release the relevant update to have it available.
Windows 11 and its rounded corners
The redesign that Windows 11 has undergone over its previous version has been one of the most outstanding features that Microsoft has opted for for its new operating system. By default the system automatically rounds corners from the windows of all the applications in the inbox. However, it appears that, at the moment, such implantation is not carried out adequately.
And it is that when we switch between dark or light mode in Windows 11, this not applied correctly on the corners, so they do not appear well defined. This currently unresolved error can be temporarily fixed by restarting Explorer.exe from Device Manager.
Fall / Winter Sale Dates on Steam
Video game lovers are in luck, as the official dates on which the sales for this fall and winter will be available on Steam are already known, divided into three periods:
- Halloween sales: from October 28 to November 1, 2021.
- Fall Deals: from November 24 to 30, 2021.
- Winter sales: from December 22, 2021 to January 5, 2022.
In this way, the third quarter of the year comes Steam accompanied by a good number of discounts of all kinds in a wide variety of video games that we will be able to purchase directly from your digital store. Without a doubt, these are the ideal dates to get hold of that game that we were eager to obtain and take them with a substantial discount on their usual price. The first of them, very soon, on Thursday 28 with the arrival of the Halloween sales.
