Windows 11 Compatibility Check- How To Check If Your PC Can Run Windows 11

Windows 11 Compatibility

Microsoft has recently announced Windows 11, a sequel to the new generation of Windows that has hyped a lot of users. Featuring a complete makeover over previous versions of Windows, new system requirements were announced which could potentially make some previous machines not compatible with the new system. Most users would like to know if their machine can run it. Here’s how you can check if your PC can handle this latest version of Microsoft’s popular operating system.

Here are the complete Windows 11 and all other Windows system requirements by Microsoft, and here is a detailed comparison of Windows 10 vs Windows 11 which will help you decide whether you upgrade to Windows 11 or not.

The computer health check app is intended to see whether Windows 11 is compatible with your computer. Its servers were shut off in June when it continued telling people with modern PCs they could not run Windows 95 and Windows 8. It has been released more recently by Windows Insiders, but it’s re-available now. Lots of problems with the Trusted Platform Module Version V2.0 or the TPM M 2.0. The app will not be able to distinguish between motherboards supporting TP M2 and cases where it supports it but does not have it. However, the tool points users to a guide to enabling the feature.
