Windows 11 is the new update to the operating system that dominates the desktop. It is being rolled out in phases by Microsoft and is available free to customers with valid licenses for earlier versions of Windows 11. Windows 11 is an important version to confirm if Microsoft is definitely able to limit errors and offer the expected stability. If the previous version recovered the Service Pack concept and limited the introduction of new features, this Windows 11 does offer a good number of new features along with the latest security patches and bug fixes.
Windows 11 Features
Windows 11 2004: What’s New for IT Professionals
The new features of the version not only reach consumers and Microsoft has highlighted the changes and improvements that the system offers for the professional and business segment. We review the most important ones.
Windows 11 Hello
Windows Hello is now supported as the Fast Identity Online 2 (FIDO2) authentication system in all major browsers, including Chrome and Firefox. Also, PIN login support has been added to safe mode. Windows Hello for Business now supports hybrid Azure Active Directory and phone number sign-in (MSA). FIDO2 security key support is extended to hybrid Azure Active Directory environments, allowing companies using these environments to take advantage of password less authentication .
Windows 11 Defender System Guard
The security system included in Windows 11 now enables a higher level of system management mode (SMM) firmware protection, which goes beyond checking operating system memory and additional resources such as registers and IO. With this enhancement, the operating system can detect a higher level of compliance. This feature is prospective and currently requires new hardware. Windows Defender Application Guard has been available in Edge Chromium browser since early 2020.

windows 11 advance features
windows 11 SetupDiag
Windows 11 install automatically is a command line tool that can help diagnose why a Windows 11 update failed. SetupDiag works by looking for Windows installation log files. When searching for log files, SetupDiag uses a set of rules to match known issues. If there is a problem with the update, SetupDiag runs automatically to determine the cause of the problem.
windows 11 Deployment
The Microsoft Endpoint Manager Upgrade Wizard is available in Configuration Manager and is intended to simplify the deployment of Windows 11. The Windows Evaluation and Deployment Toolkit, Windows ADK, and Windows PE for Windows 11 2004 is also available. Microsoft Deployment Tools (MDT) is compatible with this version, but a problem is being fixed in its operation.
windows 11 Windows Autopilot
A business tool powered by cloud computing, with which Microsoft intends to facilitate and simplify the deployment of new Windows 11-based computers. In this release, AutoPilot can be configured in hybrid Azure Active Directory with VPN support. This media is also compatible with Windows 11. If you configure the language settings in the autopilot profile and the device is connected to Ethernet, all scenarios will now skip the language, locale, and keyboard pages.
windows 11 Delivery optimization
Microsoft has enhanced the Windows PowerShell cmdlets Get-Delivery Optimization Status, Get-Delivery Optimization Log Analysis, and Enable-Delivery Optimization Verbose Logs, to improve uptime, connections, and troubleshooting to optimize deliveries. Enterprise network acceleration has been enhanced to optimize foreground versus background acceleration, as is cloud-based automatic congestion detection.
Windows 11 Update for Business
Windows Update for Business enhancements in this release include Intune console updates that allow you to specify which version of Windows 11 devices can be moved to and keep devices at their current version until they reach the end of service. Also validation, to ensure that devices and end users remain productive and protected, Microsoft uses protection holds to prevent devices from updating when there are known issues that could affect that device.
Windows 11 Sandbox
The added security feature in the Pro, Education, and Enterprise versions of Windows 11, which enables applications to run in a secure, isolated desktop environment, is also enhanced with greater configuration control and bug fixes.
Microsoft will release in Windows 11 May 2021 Update the second version of the Linux Subsystem for Windows with important improvements over the original, especially in performance. From a simple compatibility layer, it will now offer a full Linux kernel running on a lightweight virtual machine and once installed it will be upgradeable from Windows Update like other Windows components. Related, although it is offered as a separate application, Microsoft published a couple of weeks ago Windows Terminal 1.0 , the definitive application with which it intends to unify the command line tools, since you will be able to interact with all of them (Command Prompt, PowerShell or WSL) from the same interface.
windows 11 Virtual desks
Virtual desktops were one of the novelties of Windows 11. Not because they had not been used in Windows in the past but because it was the first time that Microsoft provided the system with this feature natively and included it by default as a part of the system operational. You will now be able to put custom names in the task view and you will also have the ability to keep your settings between reboots.
windows 11 Desktop Analytics
Desktop Analytics is a cloud-connected service integrated with Configuration Manager that provides data-driven insights for managing Windows endpoints in your organization. Desktop Analytics requires a Windows E3 or E5 license, or a Microsoft 365 E3 or E5 license. Windows 11 is available for download via MSDN, via the web from the Media Creation Tool, and for some computers on Windows Update. More information | Microsoft
