Windows 11 gets better looking with a nifty visual effect that won’t slow down your PC

Windows 11 is set to benefit from a bit more visual sparkle as Microsoft is reportedly extending the ‘Mica’ effect to more apps in the OS.

Windows Latest spotted this one, and for the uninitiated, the Mica theme is an opaque effect that’s applied to windows and title bars, so you can see the desktop wallpaper through it. While it’s a fancy translucent effect, the difference is subtle, and as Microsoft explains it “only samples the desktop wallpaper once to create its visualization”.
