Windows 11 - Taskbar alignment (Center or Left)

Ha, for the number of items you have on the Taskbar it hardly makes much difference.

I like to go minimalist - On my taskbar I currently only have 5 icons, excluding the Windows icon and Search icon.

I only have items that I use very frequently pinned to the taskbar.

Exactly, these are the ones I use very frequently or they wouldn't be their either :)

To get on my Taskbar they would have to be used several times a day. 
A long time ago I used a Taskbar style app/program that had the Icons on the Top, like the Mac style but I never installed that in win10. I quite liked that as they were transparent and also hid after a while, moving the mouse to the top brought them back up.

That behavior is an option that available via the taskbar settings.

Windows 11 - New Icon in the Taskbar

https://youtu.be/ar9LhQwQB8g
There's now a notification icon in the taskbar (right side)
when it's time to do a restart of your system.

Microsoft said will earn 0% coomission from apps at their store
Now all is correct to have an "S-mode"

You can't install Windows 11 on an S-mode system.

Windows 11 gets new versions of Snipping Tool, Mail, and Calculator
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-11-gets-new-versions-of-snipping-tool-mail-and-calculator/
You would never learn this from that headline or article. :)
Windows 11 - Snipping Tool

There are actually two ways to reach the Snipping Tool in Windows 11.

So, I have a desktop that isn't supposed to be able to run Windows 11.

I started the system this afternoon to do the latest Windows 10 updates.
I was greeted with a screen that said "Updating Don't tur of your system"
Once the system finished updating and was restarted, I was greeted with the following,

I don't have a clue what Microsoft changed but I'm definitely on
Windows 11 on this system.
That now leaves only one computer that can't change to Windows 11 once it's officially release.

Interesting. I wonder how often the requirements will change until W11 release? Microsoft pulled the PC Health Check app.

I didn't use their app since it gives very little or no information about a system failure.
