Microsoft’s new Windows 11 OS has been known for bringing multiple changes over its predecessor Windows 10, from a redesigned taskbar to a new settings pane, there is a lot to like on Windows 11.
However, a Reddit user with a Windows 11 laptop has shared images of their laptop passing the 100% battery mark, which is a new high for Windows, since most devices can only be charged till 100%.
What Does the Windows 11 Bug Reddit Post Mention?
Zondax posts that they spotted this bug in their system tray’s tooltip section for the battery, which adds that “Battery status: fully charged 103%” A few hours after this, OP has added a new screenshot with a mention of 104% battery life.
Other issues that are known include batteries not charging above a certain amount, massive dips in battery life and the OS not showing the exact battery usage in Windows 11.
Certain users suggest doing a clean ISO install to fix bugs such as these, instead of upgrading from Windows 10 to Windows 11, since this upgrade function seems to be causing more trouble than expected.

What Else is Microsoft Working on?
In other Microsoft news, it seems that Microsoft is getting ready to take on Chromebooks in a whole new level, with the software company reportedly gearing up for the launch of a new low-cost Surface Laptop, with the aim to cater to K-12 education markets with a new Windows 11 edition.
This edition is most likely going to feature the Windows 11 SE moniker, with Windows Central reporting that this new Surface Laptop could feature the SE moniker in its name.
The laptop will include an 11.6-inch display with Intel’s N4120 Celeron for power, coupled with up to 8GB of RAM. This will cater to K-12 students, with the laptop dropping to the lowest possible cost, sporting just a USB-A and USB-C port in the process.
If this is true, then the Windows 11 SE will likely take cues from Chrome OS, which prioritizes ease of use over other features. This will come as another attempt from Microsoft to try and beat Chrome OS and its budget lineup, something which Microsoft has not been successful at for quite some time.
The publication fails to mention a launch timeline, so we do not know when it is coming to global markets. The last budget attempt from Microsoft that saw some attention was the Surface Go, which included S Mode, aimed at education markets for just $399 or $499.
