Microsoft will make it easier for you to tell if your PC or laptop can run Windows 11, in case you own a laptop or desktop running Windows 10.
XDA Developers reports that the Windows PC Health App is being offered once again for users interested in Windows 11, with the application being available to any user who wishes to use it.
What Does the Microsoft PC Health App Do?
For those unaware, Microsoft released a previous version of this app to members of its Windows Insider program, before removing it. The app comes in three versions, one for 32-bit Windows PC and ARM-based laptops, one for 64-bit Windows PCs and one for Windows 10 for S Mode.
It is a rather interesting application that lets you know if your Windows 10 device has a processor, graphics card and other components compatible with the Windows 11 update.
Users can force the laptop to run Windows 11 by installing it via an ISO file, with the only requirement being a 64-bit CPU with a processor with at least 1GHz clock speed and 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
