While Windows 11 is only just celebrating its first birthday, we’re already hearing our first rumors about what Windows 12 will have in store.
There’s no rush for the time being – we won’t see this new operating system until the back end of 2024 – but we love to be ready for what’s coming next, so here’s what we know so far…
Details are sketchy and as usual; Microsoft is being coy about what it’s planning. But we’ve been digging into how it could look. And it’s… different!
If our research is correct, we’ll see a floating taskbar dock and a search bar taking top-center position. The widgets panel and Action Centre will move to the top of the screen instead of the bottom.
We don’t expect a big change when it comes to hardware requirements, but they’re unlikely to cause the same headaches that arose with the launch of Windows 11. That’s because more PCs will be compatible out of the box.
That said, some of the security hardware required by Windows 11 will likely become more important as Microsoft keeps its focus firmly on security.
Above all, we’re expecting to see more of the stream of minor improvements that make such a big difference to useability. Making Windows 12 stable and bug free will be the number one priority – good news for all business users.
There will undoubtedly be more updates in the coming months. We’ll share the most important ones with you as we hear more from Microsoft.
If you haven’t yet made the move to Windows 11, now could be a great time. We can help with that. So, if you’re thinking about the upgrade, just get in touch.
Microsoft Teams has fast become one of THE most useful business tools for the way we work today.
No matter where your people work from, they can communicate and collaborate quickly and reliably.
But this remote way of working can also open the door to some MAJOR security issues.
New research shows that nearly HALF of employees frequently share confidential and sensitive files via Teams.
That can be a big problem if employees are using personal equipment rather than company issued kit… it’s simply not as secure as work devices.
More than half of people surveyed say they’ve shared ‘business critical’ information using personal devices. Worse still, 48% admitted they’ve accidentally sent files they shouldn’t have – possibly to the wrong person!
So how can you be sure that your people are using Teams in the safest, most secure way?
The solution lies with regular training and cyber security awareness for employees at all levels of your business – from trainee to CEO.
And you need to make sure you have all the right safeguards in place to protect your sensitive business data. Because if it fell into the wrong hands, the results could be an expensive nightmare, potentially with legal consequences. Just imagine if sensitive employee information got shared outside of the business…
Remember, even a trusted app like Teams is only as safe as the people who use it and the devices it’s installed on.

There are hundreds of thousands of browser extensions designed to help us to save time, be more productive, and personalize our online experience.
And while the majority of them do what they’re supposed to, some are not designed to help you at all…
If you’re unfortunate enough to download a malicious browser extension without realizing, it could harm your productivity and even flood your work with unwanted advertising.
This is known as adware. It’s a form of malware (malicious software) that’s designed to bombard you with unwanted adverts.
It can also change your search engine and send you to affiliate pages when you’re making purchases. These activities generate revenue for the extension’s creators.
In a recent report from a cyber security company, it revealed more than 4 million of its customers have been attacked by adware hiding in browser extensions over the last couple of years.
And often people didn’t realize they were under attack.
Malicious Extensions Can Hide Malware
There’s a darker scenario where these malicious extensions are hiding actual malware which can infect your computer.
This can lead to sensitive data such as your logins or even payment details being stolen. And of course malware can spread across an entire network.
To keep your business and its data safe from the risk of malicious browser extensions, it’s important you only ever download them from reliable and trusted sources.
Read reviews and look at ratings. If a browser seems too good to be true it probably is.
As the business owner, you might also look into controlling which extensions can be installed by your team. We can help with this, as well as looking at up-to-date software protection and (fun) security training for your team.
