Details about Snap Layouts

A new set of features to Microsoft Windows 11 will be the introduction of Snap Layouts, Snap Groups and Desktops. These offer a “powerful way to multitask and stay on top of what you need to get done,” according to the Microsoft’s press release. With these Windows 11 features, users can organize windows and optimize screen real estate for a cleaner visual layout. Users can create and customize separate Desktops for each part of their life — like one for work and one for personal use.

What will this improved user experience mean to you?

Windows 11 has beautiful features that are easy to use and directionally aligned to the new world of hybrid work.  

The significant security improvements will be the reason you decide to go with Windows 11.  But, you’ll enjoy your experience because of the UI.
