You no longer have an excuse not to upgrade to Windows 11

Windows 11 It will be its first year. This operating system has come with quite a few changes, especially aesthetic ones, with which to achieve a renewed and modern look, similar to its rivals macOS and Linux. However, changes don’t always sit well with people, and this time they have made many users afraid to update because they don’t know how to use the operating system well. This is one of the reasons why, in one year, it has only achieved a market share of 10%. But this is going to end.

To prevent users from having problems getting hold of the new operating system, Microsoft has released a total of three videos explaining how this operating system works and all the secrets it hides. In this way, whether we come from Windows 7 or Windows 10, we will have no problem knowing all the basic secrets of the operating system.
