Windows 10: Just 1 year is already a world in the current technology sector. 12 months apart makes Android 13 and iOS 15 the latest on the market, and Android 12 and iOS 14, with just a year since they were released, seem older. And if the difference is noticeable in just 12 months, imagine you’re in a 5.5-year gap, because that’s what has passed since then Windows 10 came to the market in 2015 until the release of Windows 11 today.
Here we’re going to tell you exactly what you can no longer use, some of what’s disappearing, or certain new changes:
Changes from Windows 10 to Windows 11
Cortana is no longer included in the initial launch experience or pinned to the taskbar.
The desktop wallpaper cannot be moved from one device to another when you sign in with a Microsoft account.
Internet Explorer is disabled. Microsoft Edge is the recommended replacement browser and includes IE mode, which can be useful in certain scenarios.
