To check your computer is compatible with Windows 11, use these steps: Once you complete the steps, if the hardware is compatible, you will receive a message confirming you can upgrade to the new version. If the hardware isn’t compatible, you will get a message detailing why the device can run Windows 11.

Alternatively, you can also open Settings > Update & security, click the Check for Updates button, and Windows Update should be able to tell you if your computer is compatible with Windows 11. If the device is not supported, you may still be able to upgrade. However, you will need to do this at your own risk since compatibility, stability, and updates won’t be guaranteed. Also, the computer would still need at least two cores, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and TPM 1.2. The system will also inform you that this method will install the OS in an unsupported state.
