Microsoft Windows 11 will be available for upgrade for Windows users on October 5th 2021.  Our initial testing of its beta versions did not reveal any significant issues with our desktop applications. Once Microsoft makes the software generally available on October 5th, we will run another series of tests to officially certify Egnyte apps for Windows 11.  We do not recommend upgrading to Windows 11 until we have officially announced our compatibility with the new OS version.  If you have already upgraded to Windows 11, please see the minor issues listed below that may impact your experience with Egnyte.

Known Issues

Desktop App

  • The context menu in Explorer and on the desktop is hidden beneath a "Show more options" item.  This is related to a redesign of the context menu that Microsoft outlines here.  We do plan a future update that brings Egnyte options to the top level of the context menu.
  • An issue with multiple desktops, where clicking to open the Desktop App widget on one virtual desktop may switch you to your primary desktop.
