Test New Windows 11 Without Installing
How To Test Drive Windows 11 Without Installing Anything? Let’s See!
Now you can demo Windows 11 without even installing windows on your system. Yes, you heard that right. You can do it with your internet browser. We can say thanks to a new webpage which is created by a resourceful developer known as ‘Blue Edge’.
Now let see how does this webpage can help us. With the help of this webpage, you can see first-hand Windows 11. The surprising fact is you don’t even need to have the requirements in your PC which meet with OS’s strict hardware requirements and without having to install an unfinished beta version of Windows 11 on your PC.
I personally tried this feature in Microsoft edge and google chrome and it really worked fine. I can suggest you try as well if you want to experience Windows 11 without even installing it. It is accessible on another browser as well.
Let me clear some things for you. First, this isn’t a fully functional creation of Windows 11. Second, it is not a remote desktop running the OS. Moreover, we can say that the webpage is just a simulation of the real things which gives you limited interaction among the Windows 11 environment.
For your convenience let’s see an example. You can open the start menu, you can search widgets, you can even use Edge browser and can access the windows store but these are merely convincing mockups with a few interactive sections to sell the effect.
As you can see in the image, the taskbar icon which is on the lower right also respond accurately. It shows the system’s time, date, the battery of your device, and even internet connection status. Though, hovering over an icon doesn’t display the tooltip text that normally appears in Windows 11.
Well since it is a simulation so many features as Windows 11’s overhauled file explorer isn’t present or you can say operational in the Blue Edge at least for now. As on opening File Explorer shows a new folder window which is written with ‘Coming Soon. But the simulator indicates how Windows 11’s sleeker, rounded app and folder windows will look in action.
Let’s see more things, outside of those few mockups, however, most of the page is a purely visual representation of the default Windows 11 desktop. The Notification Center and News widgets are static images rather than interactive elements, and nothing happens when you click the Recycle Bin or Settings menu icons, or if you try to show the hidden taskbar icons. The same goes for most of the “apps” in the Start Menu.
A few will open new pages to Blue Edge’s social media profiles, however, and the Github icon opens the Win 11 in React project page for those who want to learn more about it.
Still, we can say that the Win 11 in React page is a mostly accurate representation of how Windows 11 looks and behaves, and anyone curious about the next version of Windows should give it a shot. It’s not the comprehensive Windows 11 experience, but it’s a better option than upgrading your PC to install an unfinished beta version.
