Windows 11 has problems, leaving both users and the company scrambling to find solutions. Recent reports reveal that Microsoft has acknowledged the existence of some issues in Windows 11 that it is currently unable to fix.
These issues have affected both Windows 11 and Windows 10 users, leaving them frustrated and uncertain about the future of Microsoft's operating systems.
A major bug like highlighted by Neowin, revolves around the Start menu, Windows search bar, and Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps, which don't launch or work properly for some users. Investigation of this issue shows a connection to corrupted registry keys and some data related to Microsoft Office applications, but also applications built into Office, Windows, and Outlook.
The bugs don't affect all users, but they started appearing in January this year.
The Microsoft answers for the specific bugs have left many disappointed as they do not offer definitive solutions. On Microsoft's 'Health' page addressing the issues, the company acknowledges that Windows search and UWP apps may not work as expected or experience difficulties opening.
In an effort to mitigate the problem, Microsoft has provided a solution: users can uninstall Windows applications such as Microsoft Office, Microsoft Outlook, or Outlook Calendar. Unfortunately, the company does not give any comprehensive list of the specific apps causing the problem, which makes it very difficult for users to identify and fix it.
The proposed solutions pose a challenge to users who heavily use the affected applications. Uninstalling these apps may not be a viable solution, as it leaves users with limited options and no clear path to fix the problem. Microsoft's admission also shows its own embarrassment, which raises concerns about the overall stability and reliability of Windows 11 and Windows 10, which face similar problems.
Developing and maintaining operating systems like Windows 11 is a complex undertaking. They should work seamlessly with a wide range of hardware and software configurations, making it difficult to predict and resolve all potential issues. Here we should mention that the Windows code contains obsolete pieces, which try to work with the new additions.
So Microsoft's struggle to find a suitable solution to these persistent problems is undoubtedly worrying. It raises questions about the company's ability to address critical issues and deliver a consistent user experience, casting doubt on the rumored development of Windows 12.

I thought Vista would be Microsoft's worst operating system. Windows 11 turns out to be much worse. And this is what a professional developer with more than 25 years of experience says. Good operating windows were: WindowsNT4, Windows2000, WindowsXP. From there on, all the rest had either serious stability problems, or a problematic user interface like windows 8 & 8.1. Windows 10 is marginally acceptable. Some people admire Windows 7, but it is also a bad operating system. They consume infinite resources and the programs drag. After 1 – 2 years they need reinstallation to boot the computer in decent time. For the technical support let's not say better. When they often advise you to reinstall the operating system, we simply laugh or cry. Windows is overall a bad OS and Windows 11 is a big hassle. I bitterly regretted that I upgraded from Windows 10. From version to version more and more voracious without offering any real advantages. What couldn't I do in WindowsXP that I can do in Windows 11? XP with 1G ram and pentium processor was flying and Windows 11 needs monstrous processors and memories to do serious professional use. With a core i9, 32G ram and a fast SSD I wouldn't call my computer a rocket. The best operating systems are Mac and Linux. I avoid Macs and Apple in general because it is unacceptably "closed". I love Linux. Running bullet on my Raspberry Pi. On the old 10-year-old laptop and put it on, it runs like a rocket. Microsoft has done a great thing called .NET and it runs perfectly on Windows, Mac and Linux! So now we're moving everything to Linux.
