With the ISO, users can experience a clean installation or try running the experience in a virtual machine.
Going back to this system update, the biggest change is the re-introduction of a specially optimized tablet mode, including a taskbar designed for tablets. If the system detects that the physical keyboard has been removed, it will automatically enter tablet mode.
It can be seen that the width and elements of the taskbar are larger, which is convenient for touch operation and reduces the probability of misoperation.
In addition, the new version adds new animations to the settings, making the visuals more cool and modern.
It is worth mentioning that although Win11 25197 has a high version number, it does not necessarily correspond to the 2023 version. It is said that Microsoft is planning to abandon its commitment to a major version iteration of Win11 once a year, and replace it with Moment (always update), which is to replace large version iterations with small package patches and constantly unlock new features.
The first Moment update is said to be Build 228xx, followed by Build 22940, etc.
