Is your computer suitable for Windows 11?

Microsoft has released a tool with which you can check yourself if your current computer is suitable for Windows 11. The tool was already online, but was taken offline because it was too strict and in many cases showed users’ computers unsuitable. . . . Before we get into that: How does the app work and what exactly do you need to do?

After downloading the app (browse the site if available), you can install it. Indicate that you accept the terms and conditions and hit the install button. Now tick that you want to open the application and complete the installation. Now information about your PC will appear on the screen with a big blue button where you can check if your device is compatible with Windows 11. You will then see one of two messages: your device is available or your device is not available.

Either way, you’ll find a button at the bottom where you can learn more about the upgrade. This will take you to a page where you can learn more about system requirements.

What if your PC is not available?

It is possible that your current PC is not compatible with Windows 11. There could be several reasons for this. The most obvious reason for this is that your hardware is out of date. Maybe your processor is not fast enough, this is the biggest chance. For example, you need at least an eighth generation Intel processor. Here you will find the full list of supported processors. Also, your computer may not have a TPM 2.0 chip. This abbreviation stands for Trusted Platform Module.

The TMP chip provides hardware-level security, not software-level security. Your disks are provided with encryption so that certain attacks can no longer be performed. Many consumer computers do not have such chips (nor do most custom build PCs, you have to purchase them separately), so many computers lose weight in advance. This is also the reason why many people find their PCs not suitable for Windows 11. Also, you must have Secure Boot enabled on your system, not everyone has it.

Is it the conclusion that your PC is really not suitable for Windows 11? Then you have no choice but to buy a new one. After all, you don’t want to work with an outdated operating system for too long, also for security reasons. You can also wait a little longer. Microsoft will not end support for Windows 10 until October 14, 2025.
