Introducing Windows 11

At a time when the PC is playing a more central role in our lives, Windows 11 is designed to bring you closer to what you love.

Windows has always existed to be a stage for the world’s innovation. It’s been the backbone of global businesses and where scrappy startups became household names. The web was born and grew up on Windows. It’s the place where many of us wrote our first email, played our first PC game and wrote our first line of code. Windows is the place people go to create, to connect, to learn and to achieve – a platform over a billion people today rely on.

The responsibility of designing for that many people is one we don’t take lightly. The past 18 months brought an incredible shift in how we used our PCs; we went from fitting the PC into our lives to trying to fit our whole lives into the PC. Our devices weren’t just where we went for meetings, classes and to get things done, but where we came to play games with friends, binge watch our favorite shows and, perhaps most meaningfully, connect with one another. In the process we found ourselves recreating the office banter, the hallway chatter, workouts, happy hours and holiday celebrations – digitally.

What was so powerful was the shift in the PC we saw and felt – from something practical and functional to something personal and emotional. This is what inspired us as we were building the next generation of Windows. To build you a place that feels familiar, where you can create, learn, play and most importantly, connect in all new ways.

Today, I am humbled and excited to introduce you to Windows 11, the Windows that brings you closer to what you love.

Redesigned for productivity, creativity and ease

We’ve simplified the design and user experience to empower your productivity and inspire your creativity. It’s modern, fresh, clean and beautiful. From the new Start button and taskbar to each sound, font and icon, everything was done intentionally to put you in control and bring a sense of calm and ease. We put Start at the center and made it easier to quickly find what you need. Start utilizes the power of the cloud and Microsoft 365 to show you your recent files no matter what platform or device you were viewing them on earlier, even if it was on an Android or iOS device.

Windows has always been about helping you work how you want, by offering flexibility of multiple windows and the ability to snap apps side by side. New in Windows 11, we’re introducing Snap Layouts, Snap Groups and Desktops to provide an even more powerful way to multitask and stay on top of what you need to get done. These are new features designed to help you organize your windows and optimize your screen real estate so you can see what you need just the way you want in a layout that’s visually clean. You can also create separate Desktops for each part of your life and customize them to your liking – imagine having a Desktop for work, gaming or school.

Windows 11 cuts through complexity and brings you simplicity.

A faster way to connect to the people you care about

Another critical part of bringing you closer to what you love is bringing you closer to the people you love. The last 18 months drove new behavior for how we create meaningful connections with people digitally. Even as we start to return to more in-person interaction, we want to continue to make it easy for people to stay close with each other no matter where they are. And we don’t want the device or platform you’re on to be a barrier.

With Windows 11, we’re excited to introduce Chat from Microsoft Teams integrated in the taskbar. Now you can instantly connect through text, chat, voice or video with all of your personal contacts, anywhere, no matter the platform or device they’re on, across Windows, Android or iOS. If the person you’re connecting to on the other end hasn’t downloaded the Teams app, you can still connect with them via two-way SMS.

Windows 11 also gives you a more natural way to connect with friends and family through Teams, allowing you to instantly mute and unmute, or start presenting directly from the taskbar.

Delivering the best PC gaming experiences yet

If you’re a gamer, Windows 11 is made for you. Gaming has always been fundamental to what Windows is all about. Today, hundreds of millions of people around the world game on Windows and find joy and connection with loved ones and friends through play. Windows 11 unlocks the full potential of your system’s hardware, putting some of the latest gaming technology to work for you. Like: DirectX 12 Ultimate, which can enable breathtaking, immersive graphics at high frame rates; DirectStorage for faster load times and more detailed game worlds; and Auto HDR for a wider, more vivid range of colors for a truly captivating visual experience. Nothing has changed in our commitment to hardware compatibility – Windows 11 supports your favorite PC gaming accessories and peripherals. With Xbox Game Pass for PC or Ultimate, gamers get access to over 100 high-quality PC games with new games added all the time, and it’s still just as easy to find people to play with, no matter if they’re playing on a PC or console.

A faster way to get the information you care about

Windows 11 brings you closer to the news and information you care about faster with Widgets – a new personalized feed powered by AI and best-in-class browser performance from Microsoft Edge. Even when we’re at our most focused and creative we still need breaks – a moment to check in with the outside world or give ourselves a mental reset. Today, we often pick up our phones to check the news, weather or notifications. Now, you can open a similarly curated view directly from your desktop. When you open your personalized feed it slides across your screen like a sheet of glass so it doesn’t disrupt what you’re doing. For creators and publishers, Widgets also opens new real estate within Windows to deliver personalized content. Our aspiration is to create a vibrant pipeline for global brands and local creators alike, in a way that both consumers and creators can benefit.

An all-new Microsoft Store where your favorite apps and entertainment come together

The new Microsoft Store is your single trusted location for apps and content to watch, create, play, work and learn. It’s been rebuilt for speed and with an all-new design that is beautiful and simple to use. Not only will we bring you more apps than ever before, we’re also making all content – apps, games, shows, movies – easier to search for and discover with curated stories and collections. We’re excited to soon be welcoming leading first and third-party apps like Microsoft Teams, Visual Studio, Disney+, Adobe Creative Cloud, Zoom and Canva to the Microsoft Store – all offering incredible experiences to entertain, inspire and connect you. When you download an app from the Store you have the peace of mind of knowing it’s been tested for security and family safety.

We’re also pumped to announce that we are bringing Android apps to Windows for the first time. Starting later this year, people will be able to discover Android apps in the Microsoft Store and download them through the Amazon Appstore – imagine recording and posting a video from TikTok or using Khan Academy Kids for virtual learning right from your PC. We’ll have more to share about this experience in the coming months. We look forward to this partnership with Amazon and Intel using their Intel Bridge technology.

Creating a more open ecosystem unlocking new opportunity for developers and creators

We are taking steps to further open the Microsoft Store to unlock greater economic opportunity for creators and developers. We’re enabling developers and independent software vendors (ISVs) to bring their apps regardless of whether they’re built as a Win32, Progressive Web App (PWA), or Universal Windows App (UWP) or any other app framework, creating an opportunity to reach and engage with more people. We’re also announcing a progressive change to our revenue share policies where app developers can now bring their own commerce into our Store and keep 100% of the revenue – Microsoft takes nothing. App developers can still use our commerce with competitive revenue share of 85/15. We believe creating a more open ecosystem ultimately benefits our customers – giving them secure, frictionless access to the apps, games, movies, shows and web content they want and need.

Faster, more secure and familiar for IT

For IT, Windows 11 is built on the consistent, compatible and familiar Windows 10 foundation you know. You’ll plan for, prepare and deploy Windows 11 just as you do today with Windows 10. Upgrading to Windows 11 will be like taking a Windows 10 update. The familiar management experiences you have in place today – like Microsoft Endpoint Manager, cloud configuration, Windows Update for Business and Autopilot – will support your environment of tomorrow as you integrate Windows 11 into your estate.

Just as with Windows 10, we are deeply committed to app compatibility, which is a core design tenet of Windows 11. We stand behind our promise that your applications will work on Windows 11 with App Assure, a service that helps customers with 150 or more users fix any app issues they might run into at no additional cost.

Windows 11 is also secure by design, with new built-in security technologies that will add protection from the chip to the cloud, while enabling productivity and new experiences. Windows 11 provides a Zero Trust-ready operating system to protect data and access across devices. We have worked closely with our OEM and silicon partners to raise security baselines to meet the needs of the evolving threat landscape and the new hybrid work world.

You can learn more about Windows 11 as the operating system for hybrid work and learning in the Microsoft 365 blog.

It’s a great time to buy a PC

Since day one of developing Windows 11, we have been working closely with our hardware and silicon partners for seamless integration across software and hardware. That co-engineering begins with innovation in the silicon. From AMD and the incredible graphics depth brought by the Ryzen processors to the incredible performance of Intel’s 11th gen and Evo Processors, to Qualcomm’s AI prowess, 5G and Arm support, the innovation of our silicon partners brings together the best of Windows 11 with the largest hardware ecosystem in the world.

And with Dell, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, Surface and others, we’ve worked to ensure most PCs* you can buy today will be ready for Windows 11 – across a variety of form factors and price points.

Together, we’ve tuned Windows 11 to not only be optimized for speed and efficiency, but to take advantage of improved experiences with touch, inking and voice.

When you use Windows 11 on a tablet without a keyboard, we’ve improved the experience for touch, creating more space between the icons in the taskbar, adding bigger touch targets and subtle visual cues to make resizing and moving windows easier, as well as adding gestures. We’re also enabling haptics to make using your pen even more engaging and immersive – allowing you to hear and feel the vibrations as you click through and edit or sketch. Lastly, we’ve brought forward enhancements in voice typing. Windows 11 is incredible at recognizing what you say; it can automatically punctuate for you, and comes with voice commands. This is a fantastic feature for when you want to take a break from typing and speak your ideas instead.

Windows 11 will be available through a free upgrade for eligible Windows 10 PCs and on new PCs beginning this holiday. To check if your current Windows 10 PC is eligible for the free upgrade to Windows 11, visit Windows.com to download the PC Health Check app. We’re also working with our retail partners to make sure Windows 10 PCs you buy today are ready for the upgrade to Windows 11. The free upgrade will begin to roll out to eligible Windows 10 PCs this holiday and continuing into 2022. And next week, we’ll begin to share an early build of Windows 11 to the Windows Insider Program – this is a passionate community of Windows fans whose feedback is important to us.

This is just the beginning

Windows is more than just an operating system; it’s a fabric woven into our lives and in our work. It’s where we connect with people, it’s where we learn, work and play. Over time it’s remained familiar and adapted to us. We hope you’re as pumped as we are for Windows 11.

We can’t wait to see what Windows 11 empowers people to do and inspires them to create.

*Look for PCs that indicate they are eligible for the free upgrade, or you can check with your retailer for more information.

International ‘Xposure’ Photography Exhibition Opens In UAE As Mass Vaccination Allows Events To Re-Start

With nearly half of its population vaccinated and strict testing regimes for tourists, the UAE is one of the first to emerge from the Coronavirus crisis. Restaurants, cafes and public spaces are open and now cultural events have restarted with the opening of the 5th edition of the International ‘Xposure’ photography festival.  The event features 1588 photographs taken by more than 400 photographers in 54 different exhibits. 36 different photography workshops are being held to highlight the latest know-how of photography techniques. The event will also feature 21 different interactive panel discussions involving some of the world’s leading photographers.

Despite high vaccination rates many special measures are being taken by the event organizers to ensure the safety of participants and the thousands of expected visitors. PCR test results must be shown, temperature testing is carried out and enhanced ventilation and disinfecting of the air supply.

Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, Chairman of Sharjah Media Council, stressed that the health measures were vital and because of the progress now made ‘’life must go on, we cannot stop forever.  The festival aims to give voice to the photographers who have been on the frontline of the pandemic or those still battling to highlight important global humanitarian, environmental and gender issues despite the restrictions on movement and communication.

UAE based Indian photographer Ashok Verma praised government efforts to provide a safe environment so that the event could go ahead.

Brent Stirton, who has been published by National Geographic Magazine, GEO, Le Figaro, Le Monde, Vanity Fair, Newsweek, Time, The New York Times Magazine, The UK Sunday Times Magazine and many others, reflected during the opening ceremony, on the 10 months he spent last year, chronicling the illegal meat trade: “Every year an excess of 40 million kilograms of wild meat is brought into Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). This is where zoonotic diseases come from… This is why we are wearing masks today. We need to create stricter laws against the sale of illegal wild species for human consumption.”

Funding for wildlife and environmental conversation efforts has been badly affected since the outbreak of COVID-19, “These are the side-effects of the pandemic” says Izzy Sasada, representing the work of Aaron Gekoski and Four Corners. The project focuses on human-animal conflict in their exhibit about wildlife tourism and the exotic pet trade. Izzy stressed that travel restrictions have made it very difficult for photojournalist to travel and work and the downside of the slump in tourism has most probably worsened the poor conditions in which many animals were already.

Giles Duley is a documentary photographer and writer who is triple-amputee after he was injured by an IED while working in Afghanistan in 2011. Duley knows well what isolation and overcoming difficulties really means. During this last visit in DRC he saw the effect of the pandemic regarding the lack of international donations. The lack of funding is leading to starvation and in the last orphanage he visited the children were eating only one meal a day. He hopes that the COVID-19 battle will make society more resilient and that 2021 can be a positive turning point of our generation.

Sheikh Sultan, who is ultimately responsible for Xposure reflected that the crisis had prompted us to ‘’focus on the things you have and not on the things you don’t.”

SKINCLUSION Ambassador Priyanka Chopra Jonas Talks Diversity, Inclusion and Unconscious Bias

SKINCLUSIONTM is a Global Awareness Initiative from Obagi® Celebrating Diversity and Inclusion

Focuses on Need for People to Recognize and Address Their Own Unconscious Bias – Specifically Surrounding Skin Tone

Everyone possesses unconscious or implicit bias, but the majority of us are not aware of its impact on our thoughts and actions. Unconscious bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions and decisions in an unconscious manner.

SKINCLUSIONTM, a new campaign from Obagi®, is looking to create a global dialogue about the need for people around the world to recognize and address their own unconscious bias, specifically surrounding skin tone. While unintentional, unconscious bias reflects deeply engrained stereotypes and can create “blind spots” that prevent us from seeing the beautiful humanity we all share.

SKINCLUSIONTM Ambassador, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, discusses:

– Why this campaign is personal to her

– The importance of fighting for inclusion and celebrating diversity

– How she supports brands that align with her own values

– The SKINCLUSIONTM  campaign and how your audience can get involved

Obagi® is a female-led global skin care brand with a 30-year history of providing scientifically proven skin care products and a commitment to diversity and inclusion in all aspects of its business – including clinical research. Priyanka has been dedicated to fighting for inclusion and diversity over the course of her 20-year career and believes in supporting brands that align with her values.

Story Description

SKINCLUSIONTM is an initiative celebrating diversity and inclusion, which is very dear to my heart. It was developed by Obagi®, a skin care brand with more than 30 years’ experience researching products on all six skin types, including mine. I love the way their Pro-C products make my skin look and I’m excited to partner with a brand that aligns with my values.

SKINCLUSIONTM seeks to create a global dialogue about the need for all of us to make conscious choices to see the beauty in all of our differences. It helps us address our own unconscious bias which can create blind spots that can hurt and divide us.

Visit Skinclusion.com to join me in this conversation and to learn more.

Obagi’s SKINCLUSIONTM is a global awareness initiative that celebrates diversity and inclusion, and encourages us all to recognize and address our own unconscious bias, specifically surrounding skin tone. Unconscious bias affects nearly everyone, but the majority of us are not aware of its impact on our thoughts and actions.

Recognizing our own bias allows us to challenge it, overcome it, and ultimately, create a world where diversity is celebrated. Obagi is a conscious, global skin care company with a 30-year legacy and a commitment to diversity and inclusion in all aspects of their business – from their culture to product development. As part of this initiative, Obagi® will be supporting the important work being done by the International Diversity Cultural Organization and Project Implicit.

Sharjah Literature: Promoting Peace And Freedom Of Expression

SHARJAH, UAE – The world’s largest book fair aimed at children, Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival, has attracted a record number of people.

This month 306,000 people attended the event in Sharjah, in the UAE, a small increase on last year’s figure of 305,000.

Leading publisher and member of Sharjah’s ruling family Sheikha Bodour Bint Al Qasimi said during the event that it is her lifelong mission to get children reading to promote peace and understanding and reduce bigotry, hate and violence.

Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival has particular relevance this year as the emirate has been named UNESCO World Book Capital 2019.

Poetry and creative writing workshops, a talk by a young social media star and sessions about child geniuses were included in the 11-day programme at Sharjah’s Expo Centre. Competitions and cookery workshops were also in the itinerary as well as workshops for young illustrators.

Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival is one of two annual book events in the emirate. Sharjah International Book Fair has been running since 1982 and is in the top three book fairs in the world.

Hira Hareem, an exhibitor from Pakistan, said: “People are more inclined to gadgets now – iPhones,

iPads, YouTube – and books are losing their importance. We feel this festival and festivals like these are a great opportunity because this is how you bring them closer to books.”

Sheikha Bodour said: “It is my lifelong mission to get children to enjoy books. I’m a mum of four children and for me what I really like to see is for children to enjoy books. It’s not about education and learning because they do that at school. What I like to offer them at home is for them to have pleasure from reading a story. For them to laugh, to cry, for them to get connected to the stories and that for me is a joy.”

As Vice President of International Publisher’s Association Sheikha Bodour is also a strong advocate for freedom of expression and aiming to bring the UAE’s leading publishing experience to global markets. “It’s important for us to allow our authors that platform where they can freely say what they want and also express themselves freely.”

The city was selected by UNESCO because of its “innovative, comprehensive and inclusive nature” towards reading and its proposals to engage the large migrant population. During Ramadan Sharjah is also running a special program, distributing books to refugee camps in the Middle East.

IGCF Conf 2019 “Indian School Leads Global Movement To Change Education”

lt’s a question that education experts are trying to answer.

How do we prepare children for a technologically advanced world where 65% of today’s jobs will disappear?

Riverside School in India believes it has the answer and has started exporting its model around the world. With the motto ‘I Can’, children as young as four work with local organisations to solve real problems and graduate believing they can achieve their dreams.

Pupil Preya Patel

Students have successfully rebuilt a new butterfly garden for the community, helped with a local sanitation problem and created a new ice cream flavour which they marketed and sold, donating profits to terminally ill children. Teaching methods involve getting the pupils to experience topics first hand.

Riverside teacher Niall Walsh sot

The strategy has the full support of parents who say their children are responsible, mature and ready for life’s twists and turns.

Parent Shweta Garg sot

Riverside pupils have not only been successful in improving the world around them, they have also outperformed most of their peers in India for over a decade. The school is now expanding to China and is in talks with schools and governments in Jordan, Singapore, Malaysia, Israel, Lebanon and the US.

This week it was held up as a blueprint for the future of education at an international Government conference in the Middle East.

Author and education expert Marc Prensky sot

While doubters might see such a project as too local and limited to such a small community, Riverside says its principles are universal and can be easily adapted to communities around the world.

The students themselves and the growing international interest, they say, speak for themselves.

Panel discussion

Background

A leading school in India is exporting its award-winning model around the world to improve children’s chances of getting jobs in an advanced digital age.

Experts estimate that around 65% of jobs will not exist in the future due to technological advances which will see machines replacing roles in the workplace.

Children as young as four at the Riverside School in Ahmedabad are now collaborating with organisations to find solutions to important environmental problems, food shortages and issues in their local community.

School leaders believe that by putting children to work on issues from a young age, they will be better equipped to find jobs. Teachers focus on making children self-aware, adaptable and resilient so that irrespective of technological change, they will have the growth mindset to learn, unlearn and relearn if required.

Community successes include raising awareness of the need for good sanitation in less privileged areas and redesigning a butterfly garden for the community. Other students teamed up with a local ice cream brand and created a new Christmas flavour. They marketed and sold the ice cream, donating a percentage of their earnings to terminally ill children.

Riverside pupils have not only been successful in improving the world around them, they have also outperformed their peers in most of India’s top schools for over a decade.

The award-winning school was held up as a blueprint for the future of education at a conference in the Middle East this week.

Over the next two years three schools in India and two in China will be set up. Organisations and governments in Jordan, Singapore, Malaysia, Lebanon, Israel, the US and Spain are also interested in the model.

The school was set up in 2001 to empower children to help their communities and make positive changes once they graduate. It is one of a small but growing number of schools working in this format.

The ambition is to train large numbers of teachers from around the world and offer online support.

Leading education expert Marc Prensky, from the US, has endorsed the Riverside model. He said there are millions of untapped creative young brains which could help solve community and global problems if children are allowed to work on them.

Education experts and decision-makers have gathered in Sharjah, UAE this week at the International Governmental Communication Forum to discuss, amongst other topics, the future of education and how to best educate children to work in an advanced digital age.

ABOUT IGCF 2019:

Under the guidance of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, Sharjah launched the inaugural edition of the forum in 2012.

A first-of-its-kind event, the forum aims to build a platform for better communication between governments and their stakeholders to support the government of Sharjah towards creating a participatory dialogue and to develop government communication mechanisms for the benefit of government institutions in the UAE and the region.

Hosted now by International Government Communication Forum, the event witnesses the convergence of local, regional and global media experts along with government thought leaders from all over the world in the emirate of Sharjah. By internationalising the title to ‘International Government Communication Forum (IGCF), the forum is set as an annual event to benchmark Sharjah’s media and communications mandate against global best practices, aims to bring the latest professional standards of various governments’ communication methods to the emirate, seeks to address and embed macro topics to develop a collaborative and participatory dialogue with opinion leaders, heads of government institutions, and other officials.

In addition to a series of panel discussions and workshops, the forum highlights Sharjah Government Media Bureau and its role in developing and overseeing best practices in the field of media relations and communications for government institutions.
