I haven't noticed that at all, and not because I'm failing to pay attention, but because it's not happening. I've been testing Windows 11 on a Core i3-2310M based Dell laptop since the beta program started last year June. I've been swapping drives for Windows 10 comparison testing the whole time and that testing continues. Windows 11 is not perfect, microsoft continues to pull it's nonsense, but one problem 11 does not have is performance issues when compared to 10. Just not happening.

So whatever problems you're having are specific to your system and configuration..

The next question would be, what problems are you having? Maybe we all can help you discover the problem and fix it.
just slowing down, like running on pentium III, i don't think it's from the apps since it just office, browser, zoom, audacity and not much
or maybe i should wait for the latest update

i would suggest a makeover of win11.
with 2GB of RAM, it's actually only half as greedy as WIN10.
:confused:

Hmm, why do you have a EFI partition there? Keep in mind Windows doesn't like showing more than one volume per removable drive, and if the EFI partition is the first one, it might have to do with that.
Don't know, wasn't from any input from my end. They drive worked flawlessly in win10.
Hi,
Yeah 8gb efi ?
What is this a 10-11 installer ?
Can't image why else you'd have a efi on a flash drive usually fat32 or ntfs and done.
No, just a regular data storage drive, nothing fancy last time it worked in win10.
Doesn't matter anymore, that particular drive is working in win11 now but only after win11 had the opportunity to format it according to its 'unique' code... :kookoo:

Turn all of that off. Few things need to actually be running in the background. I always configure Windows in a lean&clean way and keep it that way. I do not allow ANYTHING to run in the background unless it is needed. On the i3 based Dell mentioned above, the Antivirus/Firewall are the only thing allowed. Everything else, including Intel's display apps, is disallowed.

Leaving Windows installs in the default configuration is not a good idea. It's a receipt for degraded performance from the get-go and worse over time.

You should be doing that as a rule.

Please understand I'm not trying to insult you or anyone else, only to render guidance that can and will improve your computing experience over the long term.

Everyone should watch this!
Love the work this guys does!

Dear microsoft,
Keep it up. The evidence is building, and you're handing it out on a silver platter.

I am a very casual user, so as long as I can access Zoom, LibreOffice, Firefox, Chrome, and Steam games... I literally have no need for Windows anymore. In fact, I may be making a full transition, 100% usage to Linux Mint within the next 6 months. Just lazy at the moment. M$ isn't a monopoly anymore, Linux Mint is very user friendly, so yeah it is just time for me to move on in full.

While I agree with your statement, not everyone can make that move.

I know I am late here, but I just bought a new laptop, and it has this monstrosity called Windows 11 on it....
This thing is horrible and does not seem to be compatible with anything that used to work on Windows platforms. I spent 11 hours yesterday trying desperately to get this laptop up and running, so I could work on it, but first off, my headset is not compatible, secondly it does not work with Google Play Store, so I cannot get any Android applications on it. Also, my desire to downgrade to an earlier version has found that this "operating system" as they are trying to market it, is next to impossible. As well, I cannot find a replacement headset for it, without having to spend hundreds of dollars....
The sound does not work hardly at all, there is always a new bug or glitch that ruins the user experience. I mean, did they beta test this thing at all, before putting it out??
This is exactly why I left Windows behind a few years ago, and switched over to Macintosh machines, because Microsoft seems to LOVE to experiment with their customers, and force feed their latest disaster on them whenever they buy a PC.
Honestly, I work from my computer through Zoom meetings, and without a proper headset I cannot really administrate them, so I am seriously considering taking the option to return this hunk of junk laptop for a refund, and just spending the extra money (A LOT of extra money) to buy another Mac device or try and find another laptop that does not have Windows 11 plastered on it!!

Not sure why you chose to complain on this thread when there are forums here with members that are more than willing to help troubleshoot and solve your problems... despite your poopy attitude :kookoo:

but you do you..

If you spent 11 hours getting a computer to work, I think it's time to change your profile picture to "help me fix my computers".:p

I know I am late here, but I just bought a new laptop, and it has this monstrosity called Windows 11 on it....
This thing is horrible and does not seem to be compatible with anything that used to work on Windows platforms
Laptop model and specs missing. Also, to be honest, I just erase the entire drive and install Windows from a pure ISO instead of the garbage-filled crap that laptop makers tend to leave as a recovery partition. It's the way to go with laptops if you have the skill to do it IMO.

my headset is not compatible,
Headset model missing. I take it it's USB if you have problems, otherwise it's either the manufacturer screwing up the sound driver installation or you need to look into the volume controls and privacy section (microphone can be disabled system-wide with a switch in the privacy section of the Settings app).

secondly it does not work with Google Play Store, so I cannot get any Android applications on it
It was never said it would work with Google Play, Microsoft said back then they were working with Amazon. Also, I think the Android subsystem is only available for Insiders, so not available for stable release yet.

The sound does not work hardly at all, there is always a new bug or glitch that ruins the user experience. I mean, did they beta test this thing at all, before putting it out??
Well, I can tell you that I did report a couple bugs and they got fixed, most notably the "AMD Ryzen CPUs experiencing downgraded cache performance on Windows 11" issue. My mom's laptop works flawlessly and it's just a standard HP consumer laptop (that I did bother to clean install Windows 11 on without manufacturer garbage, mind you), no mind blowing specs or anything. I daily drive a beta build of Windows 11 and the sound is fine, even if the Realtek chipset in my computer is considered trash by some.

This is exactly why I left Windows behind a few years ago, and switched over to Macintosh machines, because Microsoft seems to LOVE to experiment with their customers, and force feed their latest disaster on them whenever they buy a PC.
Well, why did you come back and put all your eggs in one basket? You never do that unless you really like gambling.
Honestly, I work from my computer through Zoom meetings, and without a proper headset I cannot really administrate them, so I am seriously considering taking the option to return this hunk of junk laptop for a refund, and just spending the extra money (A LOT of extra money) to buy another Mac device or try and find another laptop that does not have Windows 11 plastered on it!!
You'd probably have to look into the used laptop market if you're looking for a Windows laptop without Windows 11.
