Ready for Windows 11? Dont count on it Of course Ive installed Microsofts new Windows 11 operating system on my computer. Its part of the job. But why should anybody else have to suffer? It took me several frustrating hours to get the software working on my desktop machine, and now that its up and running, it hardly seems worth the fuss. The most significant changes are cosmetic and not always welcome. Why is the start button in the center of the taskbar all of a sudden? Wheres that handy search window? And what did they do with my twinkly little tiles full of news headlines and weather? Of course, these are mere matters of taste and not terribly important. And thats the point. For most users, Windows 11 isnt that big of a deal. After a few days of use, Ive found it as quick and reliable as Windows 10. And Im looking forward to further improvements that might really matter, including a promised feature that will let us run Android apps directly on our PCs. Get Innovation BeatBoston Globe tech reporters tell the story of the region's technology and innovation industry, highlighting key players, trends, and why they matter. But if youre content with your present Windows 10 machine, theres no compelling reason to upgrade. Especially not if youll have to spend the best part of a Saturday afternoon sorting things out. On the upside, Windows 11 is a free download for those who already run Windows 10.Windows 11 comes with tough new security requirements, however, that are aimed at making PCs a lot harder to hack. Most computers made in the last couple of years meet the requirements, and for millions of these machines, the upgrade will be painless. But on millions of other computers, these security features havent been activated. And as I learned the hard way, putting things right can get pretty complicated. I cobbled together a homebuilt PC last year, a relatively inexpensive machine that runs like lightning. But I neglected to set up two features, Trusted Platform Manager TPM and Secure Boot, that are essential to Windows 11. Turning on TPM is childs play if you know how to access your computers BIOS menu just as its starting up. But millions of everyday users have never even heard of a BIOS menu. It got worse. My data drive used a format that was incompatible with Secure Boot. Supposedly, I could change this without wiping the entire drive and starting over, but none of the suggested methods worked. So, I wiped the drive and started over. Happily, I use Carbonite, the cloud-based automatic backup service, so it was a nuisance, and not a crisis. But installing the new Windows and restoring all of my favorite software apps ate up a Saturday that might have been better spent watching college football. Ever since, Ive been seeking proof that it was all worthwhile, that Windows 11 is a big improvement over its predecessor. Days later, Im not convinced, even though theres some marginal value in a few of the latest interface tweaks. Say you rely on Microsoft 365, the cloud-based office suite. Windows 11 keeps track of the most recent documents youve accessed, no matter where you accessed them on a Mac, an iPhone, an Android phone, or a different PC. Just click the start button and Windows 11 lists them all. Theres also a new Widget service, an improved version of the News and Interests tool that appeared on Windows 10 task bars in January. Unlike the Windows 10 version, which often pops up when its not wanted, Widgets only works when you click it, displaying localized news, sports, weather, and stock market information. Microsoft insists on using its own Edge browser when you click on the news links, even if you picked a different browser as your default. Still, the Widget gadget is a nice touch. Throw in a few more odds and ends, like a clever new way to sort active applications across multiple video monitors, and youve got yourself a nice piece of software. But its nowhere near the sort of massive improvement we enjoyed when Windows 7 supplanted stodgy old Windows Vista, or when Windows 10 replaced the hated Windows 8. Its just a modest set of improvements to an already-solid product. The strict hardware standards that make it so hard to install on some machines are by far the most significant thing about Windows 11. Its a welcome sign that Microsoft is willing to alienate millions of users in the name of better data security. But should you switch? You may not get the chance for awhile. Windows 11 will be released gradually over the coming year, with Windows 10 users receiving online offers to upgrade for free. If you dont want to wait, you can download it to a USB drive now, and install it for free on Windows 10 machines. But first run Microsofts app for confirming whether your PC is compatible. Thats how I got the disappointing news about my own machine. If your hardware is compatible, I see no harm in upgrading; just remember to back up all your data first, for safetys sake. And of course, new computers will soon come with Windows 11 pre-installed. But if your perfectly good late-model Windows 10 computer fails the test, theres no need to freak out and start fiddling with BIOS settings and reformatting hard drives. Windows 11 is good, but its not worth a whole Saturday afternoon, especially during football season.
