    Microsoft Windows 11 was rolled out just a few years ago and surprisingly Microsoft is already gearing up to bring its successor with new design elements and features! The tech giant will kickstart development on Windows 12 from March, sources are suggesting. Since it's very early there’s no indication about the features or new design elements that will come with Windows 12. Going by the reports from Germany, Microsoft is likely to launch new versions of the operating system with flashy features and a tweaked design to push people to upgrade. German website Deskmodder.de has reported that this is the same release pattern seen from all previous iterations of the software before Windows 10. Although sources have not been revealed, the information, it is believed, has come from Microsoft itself.

    Importantly, Windows 12 will be a very different operating system. It is likely to drop part of the old foundation of Windows which exists in all versions of the operating system, including Windows 11. The reports also claim that Windows 12 will require a Microsoft Account for Home and Pro users, the Microsoft Pluton security chip, and there are parts and bits of Windows 10X that will supposedly be used.

    Additionally, TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot are also likely to play a greater role than they do now. Hence, it is being speculated that the company will be going to take security a lot more seriously this time around.

    Meanwhile, Windows 11 was announced back in June 2021 (launched for everyone in October, 2021), while Windows 10 debuted in July 2015. Windows 11 offers a sleek new design with an almost unrecognizable Start Menu that discontinued the Live Tiles. It also has a universal search feature that looks through applications, files and messages stored on the operating system. Microsoft Teams users can even send and reply to texts directly from the taskbar. And, crucially, it even allows users to access Android apps.
