A few months ago when Windows 11 was first announced, the main question that arose was what the system requirements would be for the new Microsoft operating system. This issue has become so important because the fact has been revealed that a lot of computers, many of which are less than a year old, will not be able to run the new Windows.
To help users find out if Windows 11 will work on their computer, Microsoft has released a tool called PC Health Check. This program has the task of checking the components of your computer and tell you whether or not you can run Windows 11. The problem with this program is that apart from a simple yes or no answer it does not offer any additional information, which is especially important if the answer is negative.
A free program WhyNotWin11, available for Windows 8 and 10, will test your computer and offer you detailed information about whether Windows 11 will work on your computer.
How does WhyNotWin11 work?
WhyNotWin11 is a portable program, so it has no installation and all you have to do is download and run it. When you run it, the program will start testing automatically, it will do 11 tests and after a few moments show you the results.
The program will test all computer components, list them, and color code whether they have passed the test. Red means they are didn’t, green means they did, and yellow means that there is currently no information for that component model. We especially like the fact that next to each component there is an option to look at exactly what that component does and whether it is possible to replace it, and you will get information for both laptops and desktops.
It is important to mention that the system requirements that WhyNotWin11 tests for is the one published by Microsoft. However, it has already happened that these requirements have changed, so if there is a change again, the developers have said that they will update the program.
WhyNotWin11 is a program that is extremely easy to use, as you can see you just need to run it and everything happens automatically. If you are a beginner and need help, you can join the Discord server, whose link is in the program itself, where you can ask for all the help you need.
WhyNotWin11 is a great program and gets our recommendation. If you want to test your computer and see if Windows 11 will work on it, we suggest you use it instead of Microsoft’s solution.
