How to Install Windows 11 on Your Computer The Right Way


How to install Windows 11

Windows 11 brings a new modified UI, UX optimized for touch, new Windows menu, widgets, rounded corners, improved performance, smooth animations, support for Android apps, and more.

You can run your Windows 10 computer if the PC Health Check app generates an error. Multiple users with computers running Intel 7th or 6th generation processors can install Windows 11 without any issues. That said, you need to enable the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) from UEFI mode on your computer to continue hassle-free.

Since this version of Windows 11 Preview is intended for developers only, it may have a negative impact on performance. You might run into some bugs and issues. Therefore, install Windows 11 Preview at your own risk.

Let’s get started.

Sign up for the Windows Insider program

If you are already part of the Windows Insider program (Dev Channel), you should receive the Windows 11 version update under the Settings menu.

Those using the stable version of Windows 10 must register for the program using the official Microsoft website or the Windows Settings menu. Here’s how to do it.

Activate optional diagnostic data

First, Microsoft will ask you to enable optional diagnostic data in the Privacy menu. So that the business can learn from your use and get feedback on the new operating system.

Our experience with Windows 11 so far

While it’s only been a day since deployment, we have successfully installed Windows 11 Home Edition on the HP Specter x360 running the Intel i5-7200U processor (officially not recommended by Microsoft). So far, there are no issues of concern and we are not using any obscure software or peripherals.

Since this is a preview beta intended specifically for developers, you might like it for your basic use. However, if your work depends on specific software, we do not recommend that you try it on your primary computer. Windows 11 falls short of supporting popular software to deliver optimal performance.

Getting started with Windows 11

While the first preview version of Windows 11 has rolled out, it is far from the official public version. It could undergo a series of changes under the hood. Until then, you can enjoy and familiarize yourself with Windows 11. That said, expect some bugs and issues if your Windows 10 computer is running a processor that is not officially supported.
