Updating Windows 10 To Windows 11
Windows 11 was released on October 5, 2021. Microsoft recommends that you wait until you’re notified through Windows update that the upgrade is ready for your PC. But you can always follow these steps to upgrade anyway. Go to this website https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows11 . This method is for upgrading through Windows 10. Before installing, use PC Health Check App to confirm your device meets the minimum system requirements for Windows 11. Microsoft also recommends checking the Windows release information status for known issues that may affect your device before installing. To upgrade a Windows 10 PC to Windows 11, click “Download Now.” Then open the installer and agree to the license terms to install. Wait for the installation assistant to finish downloading and installing, then restart your computer. Your computer will upgrade to Windows 11 after restarting.

Before we start downloading windows 11 we want to make sure that our machine is compatible with the new os the two main requirements are that you have a tpm 2.0 chip on your motherboard and that secure boot is enabled on your machine microsoft has required pc manufacturers to include these options on all new computers since july of 2016. however many users have reported that these options are disabled thus keeping them from upgrading to windows 11. it’s a simple fix so let’s go through the process by checking windows 11 compatibility on your machine start by going to your favorite web

because one it allows me to do a fresh installation of windows and two it allows me to have a backup copy of windows 11 nearby in case i need to restore or recover the os after let’s say a bad windows update having a bootable usb also allows me to update as many computers as i want around the home without having to download windows 11 on every single pc which would be incredibly time consuming and
