Microsoft has just announced the latest preview build of Windows 11, and it features our first detailed look at the upcoming Windows 11 calculator. It also features access to the new Snipping Tool and Mail & Calendar apps.
Windows 11’s New Calculator App
Microsoft has shown off all the details of its new Windows 11 calculator app, and it looks quite powerful.
Starting with the app’s look, it features Microsoft’s app theme setting, which allows you to make the calculator look different from the rest of Windows 11. Of course, it also features the rounded edges that we’ve come to expect from Windows 11 applications.
The new calculator features a standard calculator for all the basic math that looks like an upgraded version of the existing app. There’s also a feature-packed scientific calculator for more complex math.
Where things get interesting is with the Programmer Mode, which allows the calculator to handle tasks specific to programming and engineering.
The new calculator features a full graphing mode that lets you visually analyze a graph to identify key features. Watch out Texas Instruments, because Windows 11 is coming for that graphing calculator throne.
Finally, the Windows 11 calculator sports a deep converter that can flip between more than 100 different units and currencies.
Other Windows 11 Apps
Microsoft also announced that the latest Insider build features the option to try out the new Snipping Tool, which combines the older tool with Snip & Sketch. After a brief teaser video shared by Microsoft executive Panos Panay, the company provided a full breakdown of the Snipping Tool and all the features it offers.
The company also showed off the new Mail & Calendar app, which features rounded corners and other visual adjustments that make them look and feel like part of Windows 11.
Windows 11 will be here before we know it, and the latest Windows Insiders build looks more like a finished OS than previous versions. Between the new apps and slew of fixes, Preview Build 22000.132 is looking pretty good!
