If a developer has a commerce engine, they can keep 100% of the revenue brought from the Microsoft Store.Android apps are also ready for Windows 11, discoverable from the Microsoft Store, via Amazon App Store, so you can download TikTok and more, ready to use on your PC or tablet.One of the biggest changes users will notice is that the Start menu has been moved to the center of the screen – and it's now "cloud powered", so it dynamically changes depending on the time of day, and the content you're working with.Light Mode and Dark Mode are official, with rounded corners and a unified design across the operating system.There are also some windows that look Aero-esque from Windows Vista, showing you bite-sized information.Windows Widgets are back in Windows 11, accessible via the dock, with Microsoft touting AI-powered dynamic features that enable widgets, as with the Start menu, to change depending on the apps you're using and the time of day. Direct Storage is also here, with the main game assets able to be downloaded and installed, enabling you to play your games even faster than before.Tablet mode has been one of Windows' weaker points ever since Windows 8, and the new tablet features that Microsoft showed off for Windows 11 could be key to the operating system's fortunes, especially with future Surface products in the pipeline from Microsoft – to have a new, numbered operating system for its upcoming tablets could be a big selling point for new users.At the event, Microsoft touted bigger touch targets and easier ways to move windows around, and better rotate optimizations, for example in how windows are rearranged, so you don't lose track of the applications you were using.Gestures used with the trackpad of the Surface models are also coming to the touchscreen, bringing in some familiarity here.
