Windows 11 launched last year and if you have already downloaded and installed it, you are probably aware of the fact that the operating system is far from finished. Unlike Windows 7 and earlier versions, Windows 11 still feels like a chore. The company continues to add new features and the design consistency is still missing.

Microsoft recently redesigned the 'Open With' dialog from the Windows 8-era and the tech giant is now exploring new design ideas for the shutdown dialog.  For those unaware, we are talking about the shutdown dialog that appears when you press Alt+F4 on the desktop.

As you can see in the screenshot below, the new design removes the Windows logo and 'This PC' icon from the shutdown dialog. The redesigned shutdown dialog promises a simplified look and uses system color accents. Additionally, there is another experimental design that applies Mica to the title bar of the dialogue.

While some of us may not like a dramatic design makeover, in many ways, it is for the best. Windows 10 that many of us are used to today is supported and is likely to remain stable as Microsoft engages in the development of Windows 11. If you like new design direction and some new features, then Windows 11 is for you.

It is also worth noting that the Windows 10 we use today is different from the Windows 10 that launched in 2015. Over the years, Microsoft has added some useful new features to the operating system.
