State of play?

Recommended Posts

Am building a new rig at the moment. Will be a new install of W10 Pro.

What is the general concensus on Win 11? Is it worth me upgrading to 11, or is it too unreliable and buggy?

How are you finding it, those who have given it a bash?

I've been on Win 11 for a few weeks now (upgraded by accident, actually, as I forgot to pause insider updates... 😉). It has been rock solid for me, no problems with MSFS whatsoever, no compatibility issues with any of the software I run on a day-to-day basis.

However, there is a big caveat, namely the crippled taskbar functionality. In its current state, Win 11 only allows a horizontal taskbar at the bottom of the screen and forces taskbar item grouping. If that's how you're running in W10, you should be fine, but to me it would be a showstopper if it weren't for ExplorerPatcher -- a tool that allows you to use the W10 taskbar in W11. The problem is, this is an unofficial hack, and while it works flawlessly now, MS may at some point block it without offering full taskbar functionality.

No problems either with P3D or MSFS.  I did a simple change in the registry to restore the windows 10 style context menu's.  I probably actually like 10 a little better.  But with alder lake chips, win 11 is supposed to be able to handle them better.

Thanks in advance
