Windows 11 fixes: Windows 11 will introduce an important feature related to the update process that many people have been waiting for. You will now be able to know how long it will take to update your operating system with the estimated time indicator on the screen, showing you how long it will take to restart the system.
In addition to trying to make updates smaller, more meaningful and less frequent, Windows 11 will now show you the estimated time it will take to update Windows. This will be displayed as a small icon in various places, including the Windows Update screen, taskbar and power button.
After testing the new Windows 11 update feature, Ghacks reported that their system said the update would take five minutes. However, the update actually took about 1 minute and 10 seconds, which is very impressive. It is wise on Microsoft’s part to show more time than it will take to update, instead of exceeding the stated time and bothering its users.
Windows 10 has long been criticized for its updates. Users have complained about their frequency, lack of quality, forcing, pushing and breaking programs, and not knowing how long they will take. Updates have always been one of the most frustrating features of Windows 10.
The good news is that this will change. During the Windows 11 presentation, it was announced that Windows updates would bring a lot of new features. The company will now move to an update cycle once a year, as Apple does with its MacOS updates. It is hoped that Microsoft will also address the performance and stability issues that have often come up in updates. There is also hope that the updates will become better quality, breaking the long streak of rather average updates. The other good news is that Microsoft says Windows 11 updates will be 40 percent smaller, which means they will take less time to download and install.
We’ll have to wait and see what the update process looks like in the final version of Windows 11. But for now, it’s nice to see that Microsoft has listened to the feedback and taken action. We hope that this small but necessary feature will make Windows updates much more convenient.
