Goodbye Live Tiles, hello Widgets! One of the biggest changes to Windows 11 is the end of Live tiles. They’ve been around for 9 years since the introduction of Windows 8 but have never really been that popular with users.

Instead, Windows 11 brings back the Widget. Widgets combine features formerly found in live tiles and in Cortana, including weather updates, a calendar, to-do lists, and more.

Like Live Tiles, you can resize and rearrange the Windows 11 widgets. They look kind of similar to the Interests feature that Microsoft added to Windows 10.

Readers were not too fond of the Interests feature. Hopefully, Widgets will be as popular for Windows 11 as Gadgets were in Windows Vista. Unfortunately, Gadgets were disabled due to security issues.

What do you think of Windows 11 Widgets?
