Microsoft presented its new operating system which is none other than Windows 11. This one is distinguished in particular by its interface with a design very different from that of its ancestor Windows 10. Precisely, this graphic evolution is also manifested on Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook…). Softer colors, rounded edges, Fluent Design… The interface of the aforementioned programs thus becomes more refined and intuitive. This should significantly improve the user experience.
Among the new features, we note in particular the ability of applications to adapt to the theme chosen by the user. So if you have chosen dark mode for Windows 11, for example, you can use Word without fear of being dazzled by the clarity of the interface, the program switching to dark mode. A more than welcome harmonization. Another appreciable novelty, it will be possible to customize the ribbon as desired in order to integrate the tools and commands that you use most often. Enough to make your life much easier.
