The operating system was scheduled to be released later this year, but it now has a firm release date. Microsoft announced the official launch date for Windows 11, which is just over a month away, on Tuesday. Windows 11 will be released on October 5th.
In June, Microsoft formally launched Windows 11, describing several of the new operating system's features. The Windows operating system update is the first significant change in more than six years. Microsoft released Windows 10 in June of 2015. While earlier operating systems enhanced various elements of PC desktops, this new OS has been touted as having a heavy emphasis on gaming features.
According to a press release from Microsoft, Windows 11 will be available on October 5th and will be a free update for individuals who already have Windows 10 on their computers. The new operating system will also be pre-installed on PCs that will be on the market the same day. The October 5 deadline is especially significant since Microsoft intends to end support for Windows 10 almost exactly four years later. Those who do not upgrade to Windows 11 immediately will see updates for the current operating system cease on October 14, 2025.
Since Microsoft's official announcement of Windows 11, bits and pieces of information regarding the new operating system have been spreading online. The corporation described some of the upgrades in the same formal release, which include a "fresher and cleaner" appearance, according to the company. Snap Layouts, Snap Groups, and numerous Desktops are touted as a solution to make multitasking and optimizing user screens even more powerful. Windows 11 will be released on October 5th.
