Windows 11 Screenshot leak Reveals New Starts Menu, Taskbar, and More

Speaking about the screenshots posted on the Chinese website Baidu, we can see that the App icons are now placed in the center in the taskbar. Apart from this, we also can see the new start button and menu if we go by the screenshots posted on Baidu. If we have a look at the start menu, it is noticeable that Microsoft has scrapped the Live Tiles, and only the icons are visible. The pinned Apps can be seen at the bottom of the start menu, alongside the shutdown button. The operating system is labeled as  Windows 11 Pro in screenshots which have the build number as 21996, the same one which is leaked on the Web entirely.

The upcoming Windows 11 version does look quite similar to that of the Windows 10X, which Microsoft likely canceled in favor of Windows 11. It is noticeable that Microsoft is using some parts of Windows 10X in its upcoming Windows iteration, considering the new leaked screenshots. Moving on to the details of the leaked Windows 11 build, the folks at Windows Central had spotted this leaked build first on the My Digital Life forum website. Windows Central is confirming that the leaked build on the forum is legitimate, and it’s the final build.

Apart from the new changes coming to the start menu and taskbar, it is rumoured that Microsoft will also revamp the action center and UI component. We should get to learn more information about Windows 11 as the days pass. What are your thoughts about the new changes coming in Windows 11? Do let us know in the comments below.
