Windows 11: How to check PC compatibility with Windows 11 using Windows Health PC Check

Here's how to join Windows Insider Program and test Windows 11 before its final release, check desktop compatibility via Windows PC Health Check.

Windows 11

Windows 11, Microsoft’s next-gen Windows OS was announced with much fanfare last week. The new Windows 11 features a revamped user interface, a fresh Start Menu, and a new app Store. Moreover, the new Windows OS now has support for running Android apps (via Amazon’s app store). While the Redmond-based company is yet to share the official release date for Windows 11 OS public release, however, TheVerge cites that the next-gen Windows OS might be out on October 20. Even if we are to believe October to 20 to be the ‘Windows 11 day,’ we are months away from testing the latest major update from Microsoft.

Thankfully, Microsoft has provided a workaround for those who are eager to check out fresh Windows OS. Those interested can join the Windows Insider program and download the latest update on your system via the Dev channel or Beta channel. In this article, we have explained how you can enroll in the Windows Insider program and check if your laptop or PC is compatible with Windows 11.

How to enroll in Windows Insider Program

Microsoft has brought Windows Insider Program for those who want to test early builds of the new OS before it is rolled out to a wider audience. The program will allow developers to test early builds of the latest Windows operating system and provide feedback on what ‘could be improved.’ One can enroll either via Dev Channel or Beta Channel. The Dev channel is primarily meant for developers who want to build apps or test software with the new OS. Meanwhile, Beta Channel is meant for early adopters and is recommended by Microsoft as it is a bit more stable and have few bugs compared to the Dev channel. There is a Release Preview Channel as well that is close to the final build and is refined than the other two.
