Windows 11 is officially here, and it’s the first big upgrade in six years for the world’s most popular operating system. With the release of Windows 11, Microsoft is giving the operating system a new look, from the Start Menu to the notification center and system programs. Users will be able to run Android apps without the need for ‘emulator’ software, and security and speed improvements will improve the overall user experience.
Many customers who are anticipating the arrival of Windows 11 on their PCs and laptops today may be disappointed. Microsoft has set strict criteria that prevent older devices from installing the update, thereby excluding millions of PCs from the update. Even if you have a suitable PC or laptop, Microsoft says the update will be rolled out in stages, and some users may not get the upgrade notification for weeks, if not months.
You can install Windows 11 ahead of the official release if your PC fulfills Microsoft’s hardware requirements, which include a modern processor from AMD, Intel, or Qualcomm, Secure Boot, a TPM 2.0 module, and plenty of RAM and storage. That’s right, you read that correctly.
Here’s how to skip the line and get Windows 11 installed on your laptop or desktop right immediately.
Windows 11 : Upgrade Steps
Step 1) Make a backup of all of your personal files on a separate device, such as a large thumb drive or a hard disk, just in case something goes wrong during the installation.
Step 2) Go to the Windows 11 download page and seek for the “Windows 11 Installation Assistant” option; this is the recommended Windows 11 installation method.
Step 3) Open the Windows 11 Installation Assistant on your PC or laptop after downloading it.
Step 4) To ensure compatibility, the Assistant will ask you to launch the Windows 11 PC Health Check App. After that, users must press the Refresh button.
Step 5) Continue installing the Windows 11 update on your device by following the on-screen instructions.
