Apart from the aforementioned applications exclusive to the Windows 11 Pro as well as Enterprise editions, the new Windows 11 operating system - as mentioned earlier - also offers some other notable new features, mainly by updating the general look and feel to further improve the user experience. New design principles have also been applied, for example:
- Windows 11 - Floating Design: the redesigned interface of Windows 11 stands out from older versions due to the transparent windows as well as the floating-looking elements, along with the new background image that resembles a waving fabric, which thereby gives the desktop a three-dimensional appearance.
- Windows 11 - Segoe Fluent Icons: Windows 11 also introduces a new system icon font with the new operating system, which should improve the comprehensibility of symbols and icons. Segoe Fluent follows three principles when displaying glyphs: Minimal - glyphs contain only those details that are necessary to communicate the content; Harmonious - glyphs are based on simple geometric shapes, and Evolved: - glyphs use modern metaphors that are easy for users to understand.
- Windows 11 - Sun Valley design: The context menu has also been redesigned with an increased focus on clarity, which is particularly noticeable due to the generally rounded corners. The animations when opening windows etc. have also been reworked and appear more fluid. Folder icons as well as Explorer icons have been modernized and the management tools have been renamed to Windows Tools. The Microsoft browser Edge has also received an updated design.

In addition to the visual improvements, the Start menu and taskbar have also been functionally revised to improve clarity and make Windows 11 more user-friendly:
- The updated Start menu of Windows 11 no longer shows the live tiles known from previous versions and not popular with many users, but is now more oriented to the look and feel of tablets and smartphones; thus, the goal of a more uniform user interface across all Windows-enabled end devices is further pursued and an even more seamless user experience is more strongly enforced.
- The taskbar contains new icons; it is now centered at the bottom of the screen, but can also be grouped flush left as before.
- In addition, the communication platform Teams has been integrated into the taskbar, which has replaced Skype, which is no longer available in Windows 11. Users can chat with each other or participate in a video conference with a click.
- Less frequently used functions have now disappeared from the menu, which puts more important functions that are used more often into focus.
- The Infocenter separates the notification center from the quick settings in the Windows 11 version, which also leads to more clarity, and the calendar is displayed when clicking on the date.
- Widgets have returned to the desktop surface, again with the news bar for "news and interesting topics"; third-party widgets can also be used.
- A new tablet mode is available for devices with touchscreens, which is not only clearer because it has an improved on-screen keyboard, but also includes new functions as well as touch gestures.
- With Windows 11, Android apps can also be used and the smartphone can be linked to them.
- Other interesting individual functions that are also available to users in Windows 11 are the new snipping tool for screenshots, additional functions in the calculator, the improved energy-saving mode and the optionally available Microsoft tool collection PowerToys.
