Microsoft is attempting to hasten the transition to Windows 11 by forcing the installation of its suitability checker programme on users’ computers.
According to BleepingComputer, the current Windows 10 update contains a forced installation of PC Health Check, an application that examines a user’s system to see if it’s ready for Windows 11.
Although the new KB5005463 update does not include PC Health Check in its title, it may irritate some users who wish to stay on Windows 10 until Microsoft’s new software’s first bugs are smoothed out.
Windows 11 update
Although Microsoft claims that customers may delete PC Health Check via the Windows Settings programme, several users have claimed that this is more difficult than it appears, particularly because the utility is reinstalled everytime a new Windows update is issued.
PC Health Check doesn’t appear to be an overly obtrusive addition to a Windows 10 PC, but users may want to turn it off if they don’t want to be informed of Windows 11 – for example, if they’re using a business device that’s under admin control.
Before updating to Windows 11, Microsoft recommends doing a health check on your PC, which was launched earlier this year after months of anticipation.
While Windows 11 is a free download, Microsoft has established a list of hardware requirements that allow users to take full of all of the software’s capabilities.
For starters, the new version will not be available for PCs and laptops powered by Intel’s sixth and seventh-generation CPUs, and Windows 11 will not support 32-bit systems. Similarly, AMD’s A- and FX-series CPUs, as well as most Ryzen 1000 and Ryzen 2000 processors, will not be able to run Windows 11.
According to Microsoft, your PC must match the following criteria in order to download Windows 11:
Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with 2 or more cores on a compatible 64-bit processor or System on a Chip (SoC)
Storage: 64GB or larger
System firmware: UEFI, Secure Boot capable
TPM: Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0
Graphics card: Compatible with DirectX 12 or later with WDDM 2.0 driver
Display: 9in or larger display with HD (720P) resolution or more
Internet connection and Microsoft accounts: Internet connection to download and set up the device. A Microsoft account is required for some features.
