Using an operating system like Windows 11 isn’t exactly rocket science, but if you’re new to Windows in general or can use a few tips, Microsoft’s new Meet Windows 11 series of videos could be for you. friend.
Microsoft has published the first three videos of the educational series on its support site. It’s unclear if more videos will be added at a later date.
Three videos highlighting Windows 11 features for new and inexperienced users.
The first video, called “the basics,” has a bunch of pretty quirky tips. It provides brief descriptions of the built-in search, on-screen groups, the usefulness of using a Microsoft Account, some keyboard shortcuts, OneDrive, and the Tips and Start apps.
Use the keyboard shortcuts that Microsoft mentioned in the first part of this series. There’s Windows + S to start searching, Windows + Left to bring up the window on the left side of the screen, Windows-V to open Clipboard History, Windows-Semicolon to open the emoji panel, and Windows-H to open voice input . Search shortcuts are listed twice on the page. While some are certainly helpful, others sound very specific to the intro video. A link to a list of key shortcuts, very useful.
One or two sentences Microsoft uses to describe a feature that lacks depth. The Tips app description tells you it can help you “discover surprising and useful things you can do with Windows”. Some descriptions have links to support articles to learn more about the feature.
The second video focuses on Microsoft Edge’s Gallery feature, voice input (again), digital pens, widgets, personalization, and snaps. There’s even less text for each, and the digital pen description is just a link to a support page.
The third and final video talks about the Photos and Phone Links apps, the refreshed apps in Windows 11, the Microsoft Edge browser, and the Microsoft Store.
Words that end
The new Meet Windows 11 video series seems to target a very specific audience and focuses on highlighting some of the operating system’s features. Some links are provided, at least for those who stumble across support pages and not just videos.
The majority of comments on YouTube seem positive, and the video already has thousands of views.
