Easy Ways to Upgrade Windows 10 to Windows 11 for Free

Windows users can now for free and legally upgrade their software from Windows 10 to Windows 11.

Microsoft is starting to offer the latest free Windows upgrade on new computer devices that are still using Windows 10.

But before doing so, users must pay attention to the specifications that meet the requirements to be upgraded, namely the device must be compatible with Windows 11.

To see the status of a laptop that already supports Windows 11, you can go through the PC health check software, which can be downloaded on the internet.

In addition, users can also check the specifications on the computer device directly.

At least the laptop is equipped with an Intel 8th Gen Coffee Lake or Zen 2 CPU and the latest, TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) support, 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage. These requirements prevent millions of PCs from upgrading their OS to Windows 11.

Microsoft is also making improvements gradually with the release of Windows 11, so free upgrades won't be offered to all PCs that are clearly compatible.

However, according to Microsoft from mid-2022, all PCs that are marketed and eligible, must have Windows 11.

Here is how to get Windows 11, if your PC is compatible and still has Windows 10 installed and is also a device that is allowed to be able to upgrade to Windows 11. Follow following steps:

  1. To make sure, try to check if your PC is officially supported via the Microsoft Health Check PC app. 

  2. Back up all your important documents, apps and data.

  3. On your Windows 10 PC, go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update. 

  4. Check for Windows OS updates.

  5. If a free Windows 11 update is available, you will see an option to download and install.

  6. Click download and install.

  7. And lastly, follow the on-screen instructions and configure Windows 11 settings.

If you don't see a free upgrade to Windows 11 option, but your computer is already specs-compliant, then you should probably stop using Microsoft's new Installation Assistant feature.
