5 Tools & Features in Windows 11 You Should be Using [Student Edition]

by Staff Reporter

Windows 11 is a great operating system for students due to its many features that will make your life as a student much easier.

Let’s go through a list of features you should be using on your Windows 11 compatible device such as the Connex SwiftBook Pro GM3 and SL3.

1. Microsoft To-Do

Microsoft To-Do is a popular task management app, which is a to-do list application that can be synced with other devices. It helps you to keep up with your homework, assignments, and projects by providing you with a to-do list, reminders, and notifications.

The Microsoft To-Do app is an excellent tool to use because not only does it help you manage your tasks, but it can also remind you about upcoming deadlines. This way you can avoid missing deadlines and stay on top of your work.

2. Microsoft Edge

As one of the most secure web browsers ever created. Designed with students in mind. Microsoft Edge is a browser that was created to provide students with a safe and secure browsing experience. Unlike other browsers, Microsoft Edge does not store any information about the student, so their identity stays private.

The new reading mode reduces the distractions and simplifies the text on the page, so it is easier to focus on what you are reading. No more social media notifications or ads to distract you from what you are reading. The reading mode can be accessed from the menu by clicking on “Reading Mode” or by pressing Ctrl + Shift + R.

3. OneNote

OneNote is a powerful note-taking application that can help you organize your thoughts, collaborate with others, and take better notes in class or at work. Here are some of the ways that OneNote can help you be more productive:

  • Create notebooks to organize your thoughts by topic.
  • Take class notes and share them with classmates.
  • Take meeting notes and share them with colleagues.
  • Brainstorm ideas with others by collaborating on a notebook.
  • Draw diagrams and take screenshots to include in your notes.

4. OneDrive

OneDrive is a cloud storage service offered by Microsoft. It allows users to store files in the cloud and access them from any device. OneDrive also includes a built-in photo editor and a document scanner.

OneDrive is a great way to store files online. It is easy to use and has a lot of features that make it a great choice for businesses. OneDrive is also integrated with Microsoft Office, which makes it easy to create and edit documents.

5. Sticky Notes

Sticky notes are a great way to capture ideas and keep track of to-dos. They can be used for anything from taking meeting notes to making grocery lists. Here are a few tips for using sticky notes to increase productivity:

  1. Write down your top three priorities for the day on a sticky note and refer to them throughout the day.
  2. Use sticky notes as a brainstorming tool. Jot down ideas for new blog posts, products, or marketing campaigns on sticky notes and then group them by theme.
  3. Stick a note to your computer screen as a reminder
