Microsoft has released a number of interactive guides and experiences in an effort to reassure users about moving to Windows 11. (opens in new tab).
It’s no surprise that the tech giant is stepping on the gas when it comes to encouraging customers to make the switch, as Windows 11 adoption is still quite low at the moment compared to previous iterations of the operating system.
The lack of adoption could simply be due to the relatively high specifications Windows 11 imposes on users, which are simply too high for many business PCs and laptops.
How do the simulations work?
The company has launched a total of four “guided simulations” to explain how various Windows 11 features work.
With imaginary IT employees Megan and Allan at the company Contoso, the first simulation (opens in new tab) provides a brief introduction to new Windows 11 features, including the updated search and collaboration features.
The second simulation (opens in new tab) describes how to deploy a cloud printer with Universal Print.
The process of upgrading from Windows 10 to Windows 11 is covered in the third simulation (opens in new tab)with imaginary employee Allan updating his company’s network using cloud management tools such as the Windows Update for Business deployment service and Microsoft Endpoint Manager.
The last simulation (opens in new tab) guides users through deploying a new device with Windows 11 using Autopilot, which allows administrators to configure devices from a cloud console and have their vendor ship Windows devices directly to employees.
All simulations are currently available and you can read more about the offer here. (opens in new tab)
