Everything about Windows11

Windows 11 is a major version of the Windows NT operating system developed by Microsoft that was announced on June 24, 2021, and is the successor to Windows 10, which was released in 2015. Windows 11 was released on October 5, 2021, as a free upgrade via Windows Update for eligible devices running across the world.

In order to check that either PC meet the requirements of windows11 install that application.

If you are using windows10 then here are the system requirements to upgrade free to windows11.

  • Processor: 8th-generation Intel CPU, AMD Ryzen 2000, or newer
  • RAM: 4 gigabytes or more
  • Storage: 64 GB or larger storage device (such as a hard drive or SSD)
  • System Firmware: UEFI and Secure Boot capable
  • TPM: Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (common on motherboards manufactured after 2016)
  • Graphics Card: Compatible with DirectX 12 or later with WDDM 2.0 driver
  • Display: An HD display at least 720p (1280×720) resolution larger than 9″ diagonal, 8-bits per color channel
  • Internet Connection and Microsoft Accounts: Windows 11 Home edition requires an internet connection and a Microsoft account to set up the device on first use. Switching a device out of Windows 11 S mode also requires an internet connection.

What’s Different Between the Windows 10 and 11 System Requirements?

Compared to Windows 10’s system requirements, Windows 11 relies on several new standards and capabilities that might leave your machine out of this upgrade cycle. Here’s a look at each one.

  • Processor: Windows 11 requires a relatively recent CPU. Also, Windows 10 supports 32-bit CPUs, while Windows 11 only supports 64-bit CPUs.
  • RAM: Windows 10 requires 1 gigabyte of RAM, Windows 11 requires 4 gigabytes.
  • Storage: Windows 10 32-bit and 64-bit only require 16 GB and 20 GB of storage, respectively. Windows 11 requires 64 GB.
  • System Firmware and TPM: Unlike Windows 11, Windows 10 does not require UEFI, Secure Boot, or TPM by default. Those are required only if you use features such as BitLocker.
  • Graphics Card: Windows 10 requires DirectX 9 with WDDM 1.0 support. Windows 11 ups that to DirectX 12 or later with WDDM 2.0.
  • Display: Windows 10 only requires an 800×600 display, while Windows 11 requires 1280×720 or higher.
  • Internet Connection: Windows 10 does not require an internet connection to set it up for first use, and it does not require a Microsoft account. Windows 11 Home requires an internet connection and a Microsoft account to set up the system on first use.

What’s New in Windows 11?

Windows 11 includes some actually useful new features that will help you multitask with multiple windows and even work with multiple monitors. The Start menu has been simplified, and live tiles have been removed.

Updates are getting better. Updates will be 40% smaller, and Windows will install them in the background. Also, there will be only one big update to Windows 11 per year—not two big updates per year, as there were with Windows 10.

The taskbar is getting a widgets pane, and Microsoft is integrating Microsoft Teams into the taskbar for easy chatting and calling. (Clearly, Skype hasn’t done so well under Microsoft’s ownership.)

We’ve already mentioned the improvements to Windows 11’s Microsoft Store, which are huge: Finally, every Windows app you might want can be part of the Store. You’ll even be able to install Android apps from the Stores.

There are some improvements for PC gaming, too. Auto HDR and Direct Storage make their way from the Xbox Series X over to the PC, improving graphics in many older games and optimizing load times in newer games on powerful PCs.
