Windows 10 updating to Windows 11 what you need to know
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 are happy to help.
Till next time!
