Today, Microsoft released screenshots of its upcoming Windows 11 operating system. The screenshots, which were first published on Baidu in China, show the new Windows 11 user interface and Start menu. The UI changes resemble those seen in Windows 10X before Microsoft shelved the project in favor of Windows 11.

With a new Start button and menu, app icons are now centered on the taskbar. Without Live Tiles, the Start menu is a simplified version of what is currently available in Windows 10. It comes with pinned apps and the ability to shut down or restart Windows 11 devices quickly. In screenshots, the operating system is identified as Windows 11 Pro, and we can confirm that they are genuine.
Microsoft has been dropping hints that Windows 11 will be released soon. On June 24th, the software behemoth will host a special Windows event to unveil its next operating system. The event begins at 11 a.m. ET, and the event invite features a window that casts a shadow with a number 11 outline. For months, Microsoft executives have teased a “next generation of Windows” announcement, with one even referring to it as a “new version of Windows” recently. Last week, Microsoft teased Windows 11 in an 11-minute video.
