Windows for Workgroups 3.11

Windows for Workgroups 3.1 (released October 27th 1992) and Windows for Workgroups 3.11 (released February 15th 1994 as an important upgrade of Windows for Workgroups 3.1), followed Windows 3.0 and 3.1 in quick sucession. Windows for Workgroups 3.11 added peer-to-peer workgroup and domain networking support. The built-in network feature allowed the user easier access to configure networks inside Windows on the fly. But, Windows for Workgroups 3.xx didn't support Internet dial-up network, it needed third-party software that often conflicted with its own network features.

The interface of Windows for Workgroups remained the same as Windows 3.1. Windows for Workgroups was used in local area networks (LANs) and on stand-alone PCs and laptop computers. It added features of special interest to corporate users such as centralized configuration and security, significantly improved support for Novell NetWare networks, and remote access service (RAS). Windows for Workgroups also offered the performance benefits of Microsoft's new 32-bit file system.
