Windows 11

For a few weeks now, there is the possibility of downloading and installing Windows 11 on computers that are compatible with the new version of Microsoft’s operating system. In general, the news of this new system is quite popular with users, including the new design, the ability to use Android applications and more features that are available.

As it happened years ago, when the lock screen appears after turning on the computer, a small sound is emitted that indicates the complete boot of the computer. And, the truth is that if you are in a public place or with more people, it can become somewhat annoying.
