Windows 10 updating to Windows 11 what you need to knowWindows 11 update requirements

Windows has a major operating system update on way for your computer.

Windows 10 is giving way to Windows 11.  As your friendly neighbourhood PC repair store we want to share a couple of suggestions in order to make the update relatively trouble free.  Before updating, first verify that your computer is compatible with the new version. Windows 10 users with a relatively current system should have little issue running Windows 11.

The technical requirements for Windows 11

• Processor (CPU): 1 GHz or faster with two or more cores on a compatible 64-bit processor or system on a chip (SoC)
• RAM (Memory): at least 4 GB • Storage (Hard drive): at least 64 GB of available space
• Security: TPM version 2.0, UEFI firmware, Secure Boot capable
• Graphics card: Compatible with DirectX 12 or later, with a WDDM 2.0 driver
• Display: High definition (720p) display, 9" or greater monitor, 8 bits per color channel.

After verifying that your computer can handle the update make sure you have a backup of your important data. Be it Mac or PC, major OS updates occasionally do funny things resulting in possible loss of data. A backup of your important files will help you get back and running should you have a problem installing the update. Please note that the above information can change once the official update(s) roll out.

We hope the above information proves useful.  Wondering if your computer will support the new Microsoft update?  Don't know how to make a data backup?  Give us a call at  306 205 7522 .
