The refreshed app is currently rolling out to those in the Dev Channel. If you want it and you're in the Beta or Release Preview Channels, you're going to have to wait a bit longer.

  • I'm sorry, but Windows 11 remains trash. Especially on tablets.
  • Apology accepted. You're all set.
  • So, will you stay with w10 or switch to other OS?
  • Painfully_Candid I don't agree at all, just the window sizing snap feature alone makes it far superior. The auto Hdr is awesome, my games look fantastic. I thought I'd miss live tiles but the new layout is so clean and easy to use. The file explorer is just cleaner and easier to use especially with large tiles option. The new store layout makes more sense. I am impressed with windows 11 and I like the widgets, instead of cluttering up my notification panel I can choose when I want open news and stuff using widgets.
  • But W10 tablet experience IS good?! I can't take you seriously
