La gestione ottimizzata di più monitor sarà uno dei punti di forza di Windows 11. Following the problems encountered in the version of its operating system in force today, Microsoft has decided to roll up its sleeves and make this feature more efficient in the edition that should be presented in the coming days.
Currently, Windows 10 struggles to use two or more screens at the same time. While it may not be a real necessity for some, for those who need to keep multiple windows or programs open at the same time, using multiple monitors can greatly aid their work. This allows them not only to reduce the time spent switching from one screen to another or looking for a window to interact with, but also to be able to enjoy an overall view that would otherwise be impossible to have. And this is precisely the difficulty that still plagues users who take advantage of the DisplayPort interface, an issue that Redmond has confirmed it will handle in the near future.
Windows 11, how multiscreen management works
From examining the circulating build, it was found that the introduction of Windows 11 allows the function that organizes screens to remember the position of each window when using multiscreen mode. Simply turn on the setting in the "Display" menu to allow the layout to be remembered, which will be replayed later, in an identical manner.
To this, then, an additional feature is added. This is an option that, when selected, automatically minimizes the windows on a screen when it goes to sleep or is disconnected. All this, then, allows you to keep the layout unchanged, unlike what happens now with DisplayPort. In fact, now windows are grouped together on a single screen, creating a chaotic display that is difficult to manage.
Windows 11, what performance?
In the meantime, the first tests comparing the two iterations have already begun. Among the most recent is the one carried out by HotHardware that, using a Dell XPS 13 computer (Core i7-1065G7) and a Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 model (AMD Ryzen 7 4800U), tested the performance of Windows 10 and 11.
According to the results, the installation process turned out to be identical, with small differences in Win11 related to icons, taskbar and sounds. Similarities also emerged from Geekbench examination. PCMark, on the other hand, showed some discrepancies, to the advantage of edition 10; if it managed to place itself better on essential analyses, in Digital Content Creation it was clearly surpassed by its successor, but only if installed on a machine with an AMD processor.
Discordant results were collected in the Speedometer 2.0 and Cinebench R23 exams. The former saw a superiority of the new one, while the latter reported a performance drop of about 10% of Win11 compared to Win10.
Windows 11, when it will arrive
Although many have appreciated the novelties in the build leaked during last week, it is not excluded that the official version of Windows 11 has already undergone some changes in anticipation of the June 24 event. To this, then, we must add that the mass distribution is not expected for several months yet, approximately for the coming autumn, leaving therefore wide margins for improvement in comparison to what has been experienced so far.
