Why has the context menu changed in Windows 11?

  1. Thanks, useful information.

  2. Hello. I don't know where to write elsewhere.
    I received a laptop (or Book?) That has a sim slot. I need to travel and I want to use the internet through that sense. I don't know how to make the settings alone (she tells me something about APN) and the employees from the service in my city didn't know either. Sad! By the way, I tried with cards from 3 different networks. Although I prefer one from which I have unlimited internet.
    Do you have a tutorial on this? Or can you make us learn too? Thanks.
