Updated Apps: Paint, Snipping Tool, Clipchamp & More

Microsoft has breathed new life into some of the most beloved apps in this update.

The Snipping Tool, Paint, Clipchamp, and Photos have received AI upgrades, enhancing their capabilities. With the new Cocreator tool in Paint, generating and editing images has never been easier. Clipchamp, an easy-to-use video creator tool, now allows you to effortlessly create stunning videos by simply dragging in your assets and letting the AI engine work its magic. This update caters to both creative and productivity needs, making your tasks more efficient and enjoyable.

Microsoft Clipchamp is one of the easiest video creator tools out there. You can now just drag in your assets and clips. Then, click to have the AI engine work its magic to create a video for you.

The new Clipchamp Auto Compose feature can:

  • Recommend scenes
  • Make edits
  • Create a narrative based on your inputs

Easy Data Migration with Windows Backup

Moving data between computers can be a time-consuming and daunting task.

The Fall Windows 11 update introduces Windows Backup, a feature that simplifies the data migration process. You can choose backup options and folders and then easily restore your new PC from a previously backed-up PC. This feature ensures a hassle-free transition to a new device, reducing the risk of data loss and saving you precious time.

When you buy a new computer, moving data can be a pain. It can take hours to move your “pc life” between devices. And there’s always the risk you’ll miss something.

Microsoft Edge: A Faster and More Secure Browsing Experience

Microsoft Edge, the integrated web browser in Windows 11, has received significant enhancements, focusing on speed, responsiveness, and security.

The Edge Secure Network feature offers enhanced storage, going from 1GB to 5GB, and encrypts your internet connection for enhanced data security. It functions similarly to a VPN, making it a valuable addition for online security and protection against phishing attacks.

This is great for extra online security. It’s also helpful for companies trying to prevent breaches from clicks on phishing links.

Save Energy & Battery Power

Efficiency is at the core of this update, with features like Adaptive Dimming that gradually dims your screen when not in use.

This not only saves energy but also helps you maintain focus. Windows 11 introduces several other features that use sensors, such as Wake on Approach and Lock on Leave, making them more common on newer computers. These features contribute to a more energy-efficient and user-friendly experience.

Adaptive Dimming slowly dims your screen if you’re no longer paying attention. This has the dual benefit of saving energy and helping you refocus.

The other two features that use sensors are:

  • Wake on Approach
  • Lock on Leave

A More Personal Windows 11 Experience

Personalization takes center stage in the Fall Windows 11 update.

Windows 11 becomes an extension of your identity, offering personalized themes, custom widgets, and intelligent assistants that curate every interaction, making your operating system truly unique and intuitive.

Tailored to individual preferences, Windows 11 becomes an extension of the user's identity.

This includes things like:

  • Custom widgets
