After all, you will not need additional software to know if your PC is compatible with Windows 11

Microsoft will inform Windows 10 users to upgrade their computers to Windows 11 without installing the PC Health Check application.

Windows 11 has a confirmed release date, but many still do not know if they can install it on their computer. The twists and turns of Microsoft regarding the minimum requirements and compatible hardware have only sown confusion among users. However, the Redmond firm is working on a new feature to report whether a Windows 10 PC can access the following operating system. And the best part is that it will be integrated into Windows Update and will not require additional software.

Recall that during the presentation of Windows 11, an application called Health Check PC (PC Health Check) was made available. But the program did not work correctly, and in most cases, it showed the OS incompatibility poster, even when all the requirements were met.

So it is not surprising that Microsoft incorporates the compatibility notification in Windows Update. This way, users can know if Windows 11 can be run on their computer directly from the update settings. This promises to make the transition to the renewed software more accessible and more intuitive.

If your PC is compatible with Windows 11, Windows Update will let you know.

For now, the notification of compatibility through Windows Update is available in the Windows 10 Preliminary Version Channel. However, it is expected soon to reach the final version of the said operating system since it will be the main update route to Windows 11.

Thus, those who do not want to install the PC Health Check application can do without it. However, it is worth noting that this utility was recently updated and promises to provide more detailed information than Windows Update in case of finding hardware incompatibilities to install the new system. The only catch is that it is momentarily available only to members of the Windows Insider program.

Windows 11 will be available from next October 5, and the update process will last for a good part of 2022. Let us remember that the first version of the new system will not offer support to run Android apps, one of its most anticipated features.
