Windows 11 Update: Everything You Need to Know

The Complete Guide to the Windows 11 Update

The Windows 11 update is the latest update for the Windows operating system. It was released on October 5th 2021. This article will explore what you need to know about this update and how to get started with it.

Why Upgrade to Windows 11?

Windows 11 is the latest release from Microsoft. It is a big upgrade from Windows 10 and has some really cool features.

Windows 11 offers many advantages over Windows 10; we’ll cover what we think are the best ones here:

On-screen keyboard

The on-screen keyboard on Windows 11 is way better than the on-screen keyboard on Windows 10. You can resize it and it takes up less of your screen’s real estate, so you can see more of your work.

Handwriting mode

It also has a handwriting mode for those times when you need to quickly input data or jot something down, but don’t want to bother setting up a full tablet or stylus.

Widgets

Widgets are back! Widgets are small apps that you can put on your home screen. These widgets can do everything from tracking your fitness progress to counting the steps you take in a day. Widgets have been around for years but now they’re being used for more than just those small games and apps that were originally designed to use them.

And it’s free!

Plus, upgrading from Windows 10 to Windows 11 is free!

What’s New in Windows 11?

Windows 11 is a beautiful and intuitive new upgrade to Windows 10. Some of its standout features include Microsoft Edge which now allows you to easily share content from Chromium to your clipboard for cutting and pasting, and the ability to use any smartphone or tablet as a second screen. With Windows 11, Microsoft has delivered an operating system that’s both productive and easy to use.

What are the Benefits of Windows 11?

Windows 11 is the latest Windows operating system that has been released this year. It was not given a version number, but it does have significant upgrades that make it worth upgrading to. The company has gone through many design changes before settling on this one, so there are bound to be some leftover bugs in the system.

It’s always exciting when a new Windows operating system is released because they usually come with better features than the previous one. For instance, Windows 11 now includes Ink Workspace which allows you to draw and annotate digital content in various ways.

What Requirements Do You Need for Upgrading to Windows 11?

Windows 11 is the latest version of Windows that Microsoft has released. If you want to experience all the features and advantages of Windows 11, then you will need to be ready for the benefits and requirements.

1. Your computer should at least have a 2GB memory, 700MB hard disk space, 1GHz processor or faster, DirectX 9 graphics card or higher, and broadband internet connection for use. To check this, go to settings, system, then about. Your device’s specs will be visible there.

2. You will need to buy an external DVD drive if you don’t have one already because Windows 11 can’t be installed on an external USB drive.

3. It’s also best to update your device with the latest security patches before upgrading to Windows 11 if not already done so before starting the installation process because this might come in handy later should your device get infected with malware during the upgrade process.

Windows 11 Installation vs Upgrade – What’s the Difference?

Windows 11 installation is a fresh install onto a new hard drive, which overwrites the previous operating system and creates a “clean” environment. This is often used to create a dual-boot setup by installing Windows 11 alongside another version of Windows on the same drive.

Windows 11 upgrade is an in-place replacement for Windows 10 or any previous versions of Windows installed on the PC, preserving all files and settings from before. It might require a clean install if the user deletes the existing operating system partition during installation.
