How to see if your PC meets the requirements to run Windows 11

by Tech News for You (Rick)

If you are contemplating whether you should upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 11, you first need to determine if your current PC meets the requirements to run Windows 11. Without getting into a bunch of technical jargon, Windows 11 is considered a major upgrade from Windows 10. As a result, don’t be surprised that some of the hardware in your current computer may not make the grade. For example, I have an ASUS computer (manufactured in 2014) that did not make the grade. My option in this case is to continue to run Windows 10. From what I have been reading, Microsoft will continue Windows 10 support until 2025, at which time the security updates will terminate. The computer will continue to function; but, the security updates will cease (Note: Don’t be surprised if Microsoft extends the support).

Ok, with that out of the way, here is how to determine if your PC is compatible with Windows 11:

Visit Microsoft’s Windows 11’s site CLICK HERE and click on the “CHECK FOR COMPATIBILITY” button. You will be prompted to download, install and run the compatibility checker (called “PC Health at a glance”). Once you have “PC Health at a glance” on the screen, click on “Check Now”. The compatibility checker will generate a very easy to read report that will tell you what passes and what does not.

Going back to the ASUS PC that I currently use, as an example, here is a screenshot of the report that was generated by the compatibility checker that informed me that my old PC is not compatible.
