Are you ready for a Windows 11 upgrade to get even better?




As if Windows 11 wasn’t already packed with enough goodies, it’s about to get even better.


Are you ready for a major upgrade to your favorite tools included with the operating system?


First, let's talk about the Snipping Tool. This humble screenshotting tool has been quietly serving us for years, capturing our screens one snip at a time. But now, with a new text capture and recognition capability, called 'Text Actions,' we're looking at a drastic game-changer. You can copy and paste text straight from a screenshot. No more typing out information from an image like a caveman (or a more modern version of a caveman anyway).


And that's not all. A new 'Quick Redact' function, lets you hide sensitive information right in the screenshot. Gone are the days of awkwardly scribbling over confidential data with a digital marker.





With integration from Windows 11’s Phone Link feature, your Android devices and PC are going to be best friends too. Syncing will be so much easier.


Now, let's talk about the Photos app. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, Microsoft pulls another rabbit out of the hat. Based on community feedback – yes, they do listen to us – the Photos app is getting a makeover complete with a new Background Blur option.


Want to make your subject pop by blurring out the background? No problem. Need to control the intensity of the blur or select specific areas to blur? They've sorted it.


The new ‘Content Search’ capability for photos backed up on OneDrive is a game-changer as well.
