For anyone that has already made the switch to Windows 11, the most obvious change you'll notice is that the taskbar is now aligned centrally, along with a few other tweaks.

Google have announced changes coming to all Google Drive users in a recent blog. This may or may not be big news for you depending on what you use Google Drive for. In certain circumstances you may find files that you're trying to share or trying to download have been locked.

As we had a break from blogs last month, there's a few changes to Windows 11 either already in place or coming soon that it's worth covering. These include changes to the Control Panel, Office, the taskbar and even the return of Clippy! In this article, we'll quickly run through all of these.

This month's HowTo shows you where to look to find out.
