Windows 11 could get a lot more popups – but hopefully Microsoft has learned from Windows 10’s mistakes

Windows 11 could witness the introduction of a bunch more popups, although this is just what we’re seeing in testing for the OS right now, and to be fair to Microsoft, the popups in question may well be helpful for novice computing users.

However, Windows 11 has a new revamped Tips app which Microsoft is now encouraging folks to try out in the blog post announcing build 22458, requesting feedback in order to fine-tune the tips supplied and maybe add new ones (there are over 100 tips already in place in the app, incidentally).
