How to test if your PC is Compatible for Windows 11 Upgrade

24 Expert 16bit
If you haven't heard, Microsoft showcased their update to Windows, called Windows 11 this week.

Windows 11 is basically Windows 10 with a fresher look and some new features and integrations.

Some of the feature upgrades are for developers. Especially, when it comes to the WIndows app store (Microsoft Store).

Support for more types of apps
Starting today, Windows developers can publish any kind of app, regardless of app framework and packaging technology – such as Win32, .NET, UWP, Xamarin, Electron, React Native, Java and even Progressive Web Apps. Developers can sign-up here to publish desktop apps, or build and package PWAs using our latest open-source tool PWABuilder 3.
No Fees for Apps using third party payments
Starting July 28, app developers will also have an option to bring their own or a third party commerce platform in their apps, and if they do so they don’t need to pay Microsoft any fee. They can keep 100% of their revenue.
These updates seem promising but I wanted to test out if my current PC, a dell workstation, was compatible for the upgrade.

Microsoft provides the ability to test this by downloading the PC Health Check App.

Download the app, run it and it should tell you.

Here are the Requirements:
  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with 2 or more cores on a compatible 64-bit processor or System on a Chip (SoC)
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 64 GB or larger storage device
  • UEFI, Secure Boot capable
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0
  • DirectX 12 compatible graphics / WDDM 2.x
  • >9” with HD Resolution (720p)
  • Microsoft account and internet connectivity required for setup for Windows 11 Home

Regretfully, it seems like I will be in the market for a new workstation. ( Seems like we have an upgrade cycle coming up ).

Say good bye to Cortana and Live Tiles
