In a world where technology constantly evolves, Microsoft continues to pioneer innovations. Their innovations transform how we interact with our digital universe.

The fall Windows 11 update is more than just an upgrade, it is a leap into the future of computing with Microsoft touting it as “The most personal Windows 11 experience.”

Let us explore some of the great features that make this update so significant.

1. Microsoft Copilot – Your Intelligent Partner in Creativity

A standout feature of the fall Windows 11 update is Microsoft Copilot. This AI-driven marvel is like your personal PC assistant and can help with general queries such as:

  • Need help summarising a web page?
  • Want to change to dark mode, but forgot how?
  • Looking for a quick custom image for a social media post?

Microsoft Copilot can do all that and a lot more.

Copilot is seamlessly integrated into Windows 11 and offers real-time suggestions that can turn ideas into reality with remarkable ease. Ask Copilot what you need, and the AI engine gets to work.

2. Updated Apps (Paint, Snipping Tool, Clipchamp & More)

Have you ever wished that the default Windows’ apps Snipping Tool, Paint, Clipchamp and Photos could do more? This update grants that wish.

Look for new capabilities in Snipping Tool, Paint, Clipchamp, and Photos. These apps all get a unique image from inputting a text prompt and style.

The Cocreator tool in Paint makes it easy to jumpstart your creativity, it will generate the image and then allow you to edit that same image in the app.

Microsoft Clipchamp is one of the easiest video creator tools out there. You can now just drag in your assets and clips and then have the AI engine work its magic to create a video for you. The new Clipchamp Auto Compose feature can recommend scenes, make edits and create a narrative based on your inputs

3. Easy Backups and Data Migration

When you buy a new computer, migrating all your data and settings can be a pain and can take hours to move everything between devices. Plus you may also risk that you will miss something.

4. A Faster and More Secure Browsing Experience with Edge

Microsoft Edge has received significant enhancements which focus on speed, responsiveness and security.

Best of all, it is built in and free in Microsoft Edge. With this latest update you now get 5GB of data protection per month.
