Upgrading to Windows 11?

Before proceeding with any major software update, such as upgrading from Windows 10 to Windows 11, it's important to carefully consider several aspects to ensure a smooth transition. Here are three pertinent questions to ask:

  1. Is your hardware compatible with Windows 11? Windows 11 has new system requirements compared to Windows 10, including a 1 GHz or faster compatible 64-bit processor with at least two cores, 4 GB of RAM or more, 64 GB of storage or more, DirectX 12 compatible graphics with a WDDM 2.0 driver, UEFI firmware with Secure Boot capability, TPM version 2.0, and a display of at least 9" with 720p resolution. If your system does not meet these requirements, you'll need to upgrade your hardware or consider sticking with Windows 10.
  2. Does the software you rely on work on Windows 11? While most software that runs on Windows 10 should also work on Windows 11, it's important to check that all critical applications, especially specialized or older software, are compatible with the new operating system. It's also a good idea to back up all data before the upgrade, just in case something goes wrong.
  3. Have you planned for a possible downtime? The upgrade process to Windows 11 will take some time, during which the computer will be out of use. Additionally, there may be an adaptation period while users familiarize themselves with the new operating system's interface and features. If the computer is used for business or other critical functions, it's important to plan for this downtime to minimize disruptions.
