Written by News Sateek

Microsoft started to deploy the Windows 11 operating system on compatible devices from today (October 5). The company expects all eligible devices to receive the update by mid-2022. Announced in June, Windows 11 is the successor to Windows 10, which launched in 2015. To check if your device has received the update, go to Settings> Windows Update. If you have received the update, you can download and install it from this page. If you haven’t received the update yet, you have three different options to install windows 11.
– Go to the Windows 11 software download page> Click on “Download now” and follow the instructions.
– On this page, you can click “Create Windows 11 installation media” to create a bootable USB stick or DVD.
– You can also download a disk image (ISO) for installing the virtual machine or any bootable media.
According to the company, Windows 11 is built on the same foundation as Windows 10 and is designed to work efficiently on both touchscreen and non-touchscreen devices. The update adds a refreshed appearance and more apps to your devices. In Windows 11, the taskbar looks like the one seen on Mac, and context menus, pop-ups, and windows have rounded corners.
The update is compatible with almost all devices that support Windows 10, but to make sure that your device is compatible with the update, you install the Microsoft PC Health Check app on your device. The application goes through the system configurations and will give you the required information. You can also review the minimum hardware requirements issued by the company: 1Ghz processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB available storage, graphics card that supports DirectX 12, Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0, and 720p resolution display . The company also suggests that for a better Windows 11 upgrade experience, eligible devices should be running Windows 10, version 20H1 or later.
