Expertise Home windows 11 in your cellphone or pc browser now!
(MENAFN – NewsBytes) If you want to get up close and personal with Windows 11 but don’t want to open the proverbial can of worms by joining the Windows Insider Program, you can do so by visiting a website. A developer at Blue Edge used ReactJS to create a working version of the Windows 11 desktop so you can experience some important new features. Here are more details.
In this article
- The simulation was created with ReactJS, SCSS, CSS
- Similar simulations for older Windows versions are also available
- Don’t expect a fully functional experience due to website design limitations
- The Microsoft Store also lists Android apps and games for Windows
- New widget sidebar, centered taskbar icons can be experienced
- The snap layout for workflow optimization was also simulated
What works? The simulation was created with ReactJS, SCSS, CSS
The simulation called “Windows 11 in React” is available at win11.blueedge.me. The link will take you to a Windows 11 desktop with the default background and some desktop icons. The “About Windows” option indicates that at the time of publication, functional programs include Calculator, Edge, Notepad, Store, Terminal, Vscode, and Whiteboard. If you double-click the File Explorer desktop icon, a window saying “Coming soon” will open.
You know? Similar simulations for older Windows versions are also available
Blue Edge’s Windows 11 simulation runs conveniently on most browsers on smartphones, tablets and computers. In addition to Windows 11, similar and more complete simulations of older Windows operating system versions such as Windows 95, Windows XP and Windows 8 are also available on the Internet.
What does not work? Don’t expect a fully functional experience due to website design limitations
We advise you to moderate your expectations as it is difficult to replicate an entire operating system and there are only a limited number of features that can be built into a website. Some links are not working and some icons such as the Wi-Fi and volume buttons in the system tray are not responding to clicks. However, this simulation replicates the operating system’s design language with uncanny accuracy.
Details Microsoft Store also lists Android apps and games for Windows
Interestingly, the sidebar widgets display real-time news from real sources, although you can’t click to read the news via Edge in the simulation. The Microsoft Store is also getting a touch of the redesign, displaying the Android apps and games that Windows 11 could support. The desktop and Microsoft Store also provide links to Blue Edge’s point-and-click puzzle game called Unescape.
Design New widget sidebar, centered taskbar icons can be experienced
The taskbar icons are centered and the new start menu design shows itself in all its glory. The new widget sidebar is a variation on the customizable news feed seen in recent Windows 10 updates. You can access it in the Blue Edge simulation by clicking the system tray icon to the right of the search icon.
The productivity snap layout for workflow optimization was also simulated
Another cool and well-implemented Windows 11 feature we discovered while using the simulation was the new Snap layouts, which allow users to snap running application windows into a grid for simultaneous use, improving productivity. The developer of this simulation, Blue Edge, did a remarkably good job recreating the Windows 11 experience with a focus on the new features.
