How to Check If Your PC Can Run Windows 11

By | December 18, 2021

Windows 11 is said to be a much better version of Windows 10. With all the new features and tools, it’s clear the system requirements for Windows 11 will be a little different. Microsoft has released a tool that allows you to check if your PC can run Windows11.

How to Check If Your PC Can Run Windows 11

The easiest method to check if your PC will run Windows 11 is as follows.

  • Download the PC Health Check tool from Microsoft, then install and run on your PC.
  • When you run the tool, it will check the health status of your PC.
  • After that, under the section Introducing Windows 11, click Check now.
  • If you get a reply This PC can run Windows 11, then you will be able to install Windows 11 on your PC.
  • If This PC can’t run Windows 11, then you have to upgrade your PC.
  • After you get the approval message to install Windows 11, the tool will say that you will be notified further when Windows 11 is ready to be installed.

If you installed these tools after the launch of Windows 11, perhaps, you might get the option to install the operating system on your PC for free.

You can also use the WhyNot11 tool from Github to find out the detailed requirements for installing Windows 11 on your PC.

However, just like Windows 10, the minimum requirements are not enough to run the operating system smoothly. Most users upgrade RAM to 4GB when they understand that a minimum of 2GB RAM for a 64-bit system is barely enough for installation. Now with requirements like a 64-bit processor with 2 cores, running Windows 11 requires quite an upgrade from a Windows 10 capable system.

It should also be noted that while the minimum system requirements will allow you to install Windows 11, all features will not as this new operating system also has special feature requirements.
