I don't want the start menu in the middle. I did read they currently have a setting to make it left oriented which is fine until they remove that option.

Will be interesting to see what Microsoft did this time to hide the version number

IDK how you usually search, i found 3 methods:

Code:
reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion" /f ProductName >C:\version.txt
systeminfo | findstr /B /C:"OS Name" >>C:\version.txt
wmic os get name  >>C:\version.txt

The registry key still reads Windows 10
WMIC outputs "16 bit text" (is there an official name for that?)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
ProductName REG_SZ Windows 10 Home

End of search: 1 match(es) found.

OS Name: Microsoft Windows 11 Home

Sigh ..

GetVersionEx() returns 6.2
RtlGetVersion() returns 10.0

WONTFIX until they make up their minds how version checking is supposed to work this time

That's okay, Windows can't identify Windows 11. So much of it is still Win10.
My first thoughts were how much did Microsoft reuse for this early leaked Windows 11 version.

Because if 99% of it is still Windows 10 with tweaks and a new number well I can understand GPU-Z will show Windows 10 and also understand why @W1zzard won't make any changes to his awesome tool :D

Based on what I've seen so far it's exactly the same as Windows 10, just with some UI changes

Couldn't you just assume if it's wddm 3.0 driver, it is most likely windows 11?

I agree other than the DirectX changes. I find AutoHDR handy but no denying it couldve been backported...

Source?

EDIT: nvm, google it you dummy lol.

It appears it will be a somewhat watered down version without the new storage stack but yes, Lynx is right.

In time there will be a way to properly detect Windows 11, I'm sure Microsoft is still figuring out the most complicated way to make life more difficult for developers

Don't worry, they have a guy for that I'm sure.
