Many have tried Microsoft’s PC Health Check app and received the message that their systems can’t run Windows 11. Microsoft has now removed the app in order to improve its functionality. An early preview build of Windows 11 was released for Windows Insiders yesterday, but some were unable to install it even after being given the green light by the app. Microsoft has made an update to Settings to resolve some issues.

With these minimum system requirements in mind, the PC Health Check app was intended to help people check if their current Windows 10 PC could upgrade to Windows 11. Based on the feedback so far, we acknowledge that it was not fully prepared to share the level of detail or accuracy you expected from us on why a Windows 10 PC doesn’t meet upgrade requirements.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
