[OTHER FIXES NOT COVERED IN THE VIDEO]
The beautiful interface extends to the app store. Rounded corners and colorful user interface. Installation of software is easy you just search for the app and then install. Done!
It provides you with a software description, rating of the software and even screenshot. You can also appeal for updating the software if the version available is older
Now some touchscreen devices are supported. Also, the feedback page is added. "Do not show installed applications" is added in the settings of the main menu. Also there are new prompts for downloading and installation failure. Downloading and installing extensions in App Store are supported for Browser over V5.5.4.
This app also has several changes. Custom corner markers can now be added to files by third-party programs. Custom context menus can be configured by third-party programs. Also showing file extensions in file names can be enabled or disabled in settings. Some special characters are supported in file names. The overall user interface is a fresh one. I loved it. Whenever it is Cutefish or Deepin, the change in the user interface hits fresh. Subtle amount of blur. Not much noticeable but makes a difference.
The mail app has also received several new updates.
In the new version, now you can:
Jump to new emails directly by clicking system notifications.
Automatically receive emails when the network is reconnected.
Add folders to and remove folders from the Favorite folder.
Stick common emails and aggregated emails on top.
Preview email attachments.
Add Gmail, Yahoo Mail easily.
Import contacts in vCard format.
Switch the character encoding to fix the display error in the email body.
See the "Send Time" in the forwarded email.
Send files by clicking the "Send by email" option in the right-click menu.
Receive emails automatically every few days.
Last but not the least. Get enriched functions of mail editor! So many changes!
The now device manager lets you see attached and working devices. They have also added the feature to disable a certain device. So you can just right click and disable the CPU. Also Local drivers of devices in deb format can be installed, updated, and uninstalled!
Deepin though has a lovely UI but the personalization factor has still remained something that is not much flexible. You can apply new icon packs, change transparency but it is reflected just to the dock. Change the theme between light and dark mode. They also have some cool wallpapers to choose from.
Few changes are there in the Grand Search Now
File types and file extensions can be used as keywords.
The search scope is enlarged.
All new screenshot utility! Now you can take scrollshots, pin screenshots while you work, they also have a number of options like you can doodle whatever you want on them.
The information now in the System Module has been optimized
Now though this is a nice release but there are some problems. Scrollshot does not seem to work. There are some weird glitches. Also come on! Add some animations at least when you are making it look beautiful. There is a lack of animation, and it just takes away the fun. Smooth animations at the correct speed and pull up the experience by several units. The mail app uses insecure method to log in. You need to disable a feature from your google accounts to get access. Also, this feature to turn off an important security measure won’t be available anymore probably in a few months or days so how will you log in then? That is an issue. App store looks great but most of the tome, it is unable to reach or fetch contents.

Windows 11 had its own visual overhaul. It was a surprise from Microsoft. Many found it to be useful while several laptops and desktops were left out. Like in my case I have two laptops which did not receive the windows 11 update. Also, Windows 11 has its own disadvantages, for certain machines… those that are new work great like the stable windows 11 pro on my Intel 10th gen CPU while a little older 9th Gen gaming series when was updated earlier performed poorly. I had shared my experiences about that, Click the I button above to watch the video. Well now it is fine now, and Windows 11 feels fast on my 9th Gen laptop. So, you see Updates are important.
Windows 11 lite has an unique welcome experience, it no way matches the windows 11 design language and feels more like inspired by windows 8 or 8.1. Now…
Choose the correct keyboard layout
Then accept the license terms
Choose an username and password
Then it finalizes your settings
It also shows you messages while logging into your account
The wallpaper looks like Windows 11 from Wish.com Whatever…
Now the first thing that you will notice is that several effects are disabled by default, you can’t get transparency, animations and while moving the windows, the contents are not shown. Even if you see, there are several applications missing, for instance Microsoft store itself is missing.
Windows 11 Lite has the most minimum set of applications, whatever is required to help you get started. Full stop! It is low on the CPU, takes an incredibly low amount of storage. Windows 11 fitting within just 10 gb itself is something unbelievable. Since there is no bloatware, Windows 11 lite is incredibly trimmed down and takes only this much amount of RAM.
I was comparing this with my windows 11 official version from Microsoft. This is with the screen recorder on, and this is without the screen recorder switched on.
The lack of animation makes the system feel much faster and snappier. And bonus is that they even provide you to turn back on transparency and animation if you like them.
Windows 11 lite has even brought subtle changes in the system. The windows+x menu is having a several new entries.
Rest of the things work, talk about changing themes, wallpaper, colours, sounds, surfing the web is fast and snappy. The entire system feels very light weight.
Even it performs well on GeekBench and the performance is almost equivalent to that of windows 11.
Well windows 11 has not been trimmed properly, there are missing software, and their references are still there in the system. The unavailability of any browser preinstalled made my life difficult. Also, there are no audio and video players. The fluent photo viewer app has been replaced with the legacy windows image viewer. They have a compressor app which claims to compress windows 11 but unfortunately running that app in my machine does nothing and it takes forever to compress windows. The CPU usage is identical to my windows 11 stable on this machine when it was freshly installed. The windows + x menu does not work completely, many of the apps don’t launch from there. After installing windows 11, I was pretty much stuck there. Felt like an island. You can’t download new software, you don’t have Microsoft store or any web browser, there are app references in the start menu, when clicked they are added to the application menu, but the apps don’t open or download. Apps are lagging a bit here, windows 11 lite takes few seconds to register every click probably because this thing is running from a pen drive. I appreciate Windows 11 lite was at least usable from a pen drive, the original version would have performed worse. Also, file explorer does not show thumbnails by default which is not appreciated. The Bluetooth did not work for me. Although the dongle was supported by a stable build of windows 11 previously, this version just won’t recognise the dongle. Well, last but not the least, since this is an unofficial build, you won’t get updates and even if you do, your system might just get locked someday by Microsoft,
So, I thought…
Why not just modify certain things in windows 11 itself to make it feel snappier and faster?
Open the start menu and search for adjust windows appearance
Now you can uncheck them accordingly. You can partially or fully turn off animations, show or disable shadows, thumbnails and many more features.
Also remember this is an unofficial build so if you don’t trust the creator, the best is to change the settings as required in windows itself safely. You don’t get broken features and apps in that way. But that huge trimming in storage, for that you need Windows 11 lite.
The conclusion that I can draw is that Windows 11 Lite is not for modern computers, it is probably what Microsoft can so with Windows for older devices, a hope to bring them back to life just like Chrome OS. It does not change the CPU usage though but there is a remarkable change in the amount of ram and storage used as compared to the original windows 11. This is obviously not for daily use but a kind of appeal to Microsoft what they can do with windows 11 for extending support to older hardware. Like some just use their PCs for browsing the web, watching movies, coding, or writing documents why do you need TPM and secure boot for that.
