It's possible that you're reading this because you're using Windows 8 or 10, and those operating systems don't have a Settings app to keep your system healthy through recommendations. That's right, Microsoft's OSes with the Start menu are devoid of such features, and instead, you have to rely on the system's built-in settings to get the same kinds of recommendations. But there's good news: Windows 11 has a Settings app that does the same job, and we're here to help you get the most out of it.
Do you keep your PC clean? Then you need to know how Windows 11's Settings app works to keep your PC healthy through recommendations.

- Microsoft has found another purpose for the Settings app that will help users even more.
- The technical team has now integrated useful information into the structure of this widely used system application.
- If you use power settings that are not recommended by the system, certain messages will appear in the user settings windows.
- The updated Settings for Windows 11 application will also include information about the status of your Office365 subscription.
Of all the new features Microsoft has developed for Windows 11, this is probably one of the most useful.
The revamped settings app has already received positive feedback from insiders, and perhaps not just because it looks better and reorganizes settings in a more logical way, but also because it informs users about many aspects.
Also, if you change certain settings, the system will tell you that what you have done is not really recommended.
The Settings application provides very useful information
We all start manipulating system settings after installing an operating system. And that's just to adjust things to our needs.
The Windows operating system already allows the user to choose different settings depending on whether the device is running on battery or connected to a power source.
In Windows 11, if you set any of these settings to Never, you will receive certain notifications that you can see when you use the Settings app.
These system alerts also include an action button that allows you to return to the recommended settings.
And if you've been following the available information about the upcoming operating system, playing with the power settings still might not be the best idea.
We mention this because after installing version 22000.65, many users complained that Windows 11 affected battery life on laptops and tablets.
But the recommendations it will show won't be limited to Windows 11's own settings.
For example, the Settings app also reminds you when your Microsoft 365 subscription expires, when OneDrive status goes up, or when a new Windows update is released.
You would think that these ideas that Microsoft keeps coming up with would make fans very happy because they make everything accessible.
No one really cares, which is why the initiative hasn't been so well received.
Windows 11 users who posted their reviews on Reddit are actually disappointed that the tech company is still not addressing some of the most important issues.
Note that the new operating system also has a built-in feature that alerts users when their NVMe SSD is experiencing hardware issues.
Every day Microsoft adds more and more interesting and useful features to the new operating system.
There's a lot to be excited about and a lot more to test before Windows 11 becomes a full-fledged operating system.
