Microsoft accidentally exposed the Windows 12 interface. With a floating taskbar and system icons at the top, not at the bottom

During the Ignite Keynote 2022 event, Microsoft (accidentally or intentionally) lit up the interface of the next big Windows update. It is expected that such a version will be released in 2024 and, due to the large number of innovations, will receive its own serial number – 12 (approximately as it was with Windows 11).

The image (the quality of the image shown during the event left something to be desired, so the image above is a recreated image in a higher quality) shows a number of features that are not typical for Windows 11: a floating (not reaching the edges of the screen) taskbar, a floating search menu, and also system icons at the top (and not the usual bottom) of the screen on the right and top left – the weather widget.

The next major Windows update is still in the prototype stage, but sources familiar with the situation said the prototype shown at Ignite reflects what Microsoft is aiming for in the next version of Windows. Of course, now only a part of the possible innovations is shown – in reality there will be more of them. So, it is expected that Windows 12 will have a new lock screen, a new notification center, etc.

The global goal for the interface is to make it more convenient for touch input. Microsoft is still not doing very well with the balance in this regard: for example, if Windows 8 was strongly focused specifically on “touch interaction”, then Windows 10, on the contrary, is more convenient for working with a mouse and keyboard. In Windows 11, Microsoft tried to find a middle ground, but it didn’t work out: after all, the convenience of controlling with a mouse comes first.

Windows 11 build released with 2 GB of RAM and

Third-party company NTDEV has unveiled a modification of Windows 11 called Tiny11. This is a light version of Windows 11 Pro 22H2, from which everything superfluous was removed, including the Microsoft Edge browser. At the same time, it left a calculator, notepad, Paint, terminal, Microsoft Store and features for people with disabilities.

The main feature of the assembly is reduced system requirements. If the regular Windows 11 Pro 22H2 requires 4 GB of RAM and at least 24 GB of disk space (official requirements say 64 GB), then the lite version is 2 GB and 8 GB, respectively. That is, it will work fine even on relatively weak PCs and laptops.

At the same time, the developers of the modification stated that this is not a hacked version, for activation you need to buy a license key from Microsoft or official partners. You can download the assembly here.

Microsoft has not yet responded to such experiments, so it is unclear whether they will prohibit such modifications.

Earlier it was reported that the company began to “spam” ads for Windows 11, displaying it in full screen, and it is difficult to refuse the installation.
