Microsoft took the wraps off its first big operating system update in six years. The new Windows 11 operating system comes with a new refreshed look as well as some new features. However, machines wanting to run the new update will have to satisfy the minimum system requirements to be able to run Windows 11.
Users that are not certain about the specifications of their laptop or PC can even check with their device manufacturer or by using Microsoft’s PC Health Check app which is compatible with Windows 10.
Microsoft has also listed the requirements for installing Windows 11 on a PC. If a device does not satisfy the minimum requirements, it will not receive a free upgrade to Windows 11.
