The first screenshots were first published at Chinese site Baidu, the entire Windows 11 OS has appeared online, complete with a new user interface, Start menu, and lots more.

The new Windows 11 user interface and Start menu look very similar to what was originally found in Windows 10X. Microsoft had been simplifying Windows for dual-screen devices, before canceling this project in favor of Windows 11.

Visually, the biggest changes you’ll notice can be found along the taskbar. Microsoft has centered the app icons here, cleaned up the tray area, and included a new Start button and menu.

At first glance, Windows 11 looks a lot like Windows 10 with a design overhaul that includes colorful icons, rounded corners, and new animations. These changes were expected as part of the Sun Valley update that we have been reporting on for some time.
