The fresh version of Windows 11 brought new "Scissors", "Calculator" and "Mail"

Microsoft has just released a fresh test version of Windows 11, which is now available to members of the Windows Insiders program.


It includes updated built-in applications "Scissors", "Calculator" and "Mail". They are all designed with the new visual style of Windows 11.

Microsoft is replacing the Snipping Tool and Snip & Sketch desktop apps in Windows 11 with a new universal Snipping Tool app that combines the best features of both apps. The Win + Shift + S keyboard shortcut will become the primary way to take a screenshot in Windows 11. After the screenshot has been taken, the Snipping Tool includes editing options for cropping, annotating, and more. Microsoft even finally added dark mode to the Snipping Tool.

Microsoft has also updated the Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 11 to match the new visual style of the operating system. Developer Dave Grohotzky explained:

We've added rounded corners and other tweaks to make them look and feel like they are part of Windows 11. "

The calculator app in Windows 11 has also received some minor improvements. For example, you can install your own theme in an application that is different from the rest of the system. Note that the new calculator has been rewritten in C #.

Finally, Windows 11 testers can now try out one-to-one and group audio or video calls with Microsoft Teams. You can also share a screenshot just like in a regular Microsoft Teams app.

These are not the only applications that will be updated for Windows 11. As promised by Microsoft, in the future there will be new features for other applications built into the system.
