Although Windows 11 is scheduled to launch on October 5th, not all PCs will be eligible for the upgrade due to a number of hardware compatibility issues. Therefore, before you begin planning your upgrade, verify that your computer is compatible with Windows 11. Microsoft has addressed this by introducing the latest PC Health Check utility tool, which allows you to determine what is required and, if necessary, make changes to your PC.
