WINDOWS 11 UPGRADES | INSTALLATIONS & SERVICES
Windows 11 will require a certain level and age of hardware and bios settings upgrades and changes to even install.
Some settings required are by default not active in a bios.
These are recommended to be done by a qualified technician as every manufacturer recommends not to change or update a bios unless you are 100% sure of what you are doing. If done incorrectly this can either kill your mainboard and it CANNOT be fixed or stop it starting properly.
You WILL NOT be able to install windows 11 on a computer usually more than 4 years old as it wil not have the security requirements windows 11 needs and certainly not on any computer that has had a windows 10 upgrade from windows 7.
We are sorry to say that you will require a new computer for anything that old.
Not even Windows users, that is, as a survey conducted by Savings reveals that only 38 percent of those already running Microsofts operating system are currently in the know regarding the upcoming launch.
In fact, two in three users did not know whether their computers had the necessary hardware to make the change , and 45 percent were not sure if they would download the update when it begins rolling out in early October, the study reads.
And if you think this is bad news for Microsoft, just listen to this. Only 41 percent of the users claim they are interested in downloading and installing Windows 11, even if their devices are eligible for the free upgrade. 14 percent of the respondents said they would not install the OS, while 45 percent are still unsure.
14 percent of the users said they are excited about the prospects of running Android apps on Windows 11, while 13 percent of them claimed they like how the operating system looks.
Only 3 percent are interested in widgets, and just 2 percent said they like the new Microsoft Store.
About 14 percent of Windows users said the ability to run Android apps from their computer was the feature they are most excited about. This means users won’t have to switch between their phones and their PCs to explore social media or play in-app games, and the look and feel of the apps will be very similar across both devices.
Additionally, this change could impact a large number of americans: about 47 percent of U.S. smartphone users have Androids, the survey reads.
Many users are still confused about the new hardware requirements, as no less than two in three people said they are not sure if their devices can run Windows 11.
1. The new design and sounds are modern, fresh, clean and beautiful, bringing users a sense of calm and ease.
2. With Start, they have put users and their content at the center. Start utilises the power of the cloud and Microsoft 365 to show their recent files no matter what device you were viewing them on.
3. Snap Layouts, Snap Groups and Desktops provide an even more powerful way to multitask and optimise screen real estate.
4. Chat from Microsoft Teams is integrated into the taskbar providing a faster way to connect to the people users care about.
5. Widgets, a new personalised feed powered by AI, provides a faster way to access the information users care about, and with Microsoft Edges world class performance, speed and productivity features they can get more done on the web.
6. Windows 11 delivers the best Windows ever for gaming and unlocks the full potential of the system's hardware with technology like DirectX12 Ultimate, DirectStorage and Auto HDR.

7. Windows 11 comes with a new Microsoft Store rebuilt with an all-new design making it easier to search and discover your favorite apps, games, shows, and movies in one trusted location.

8. Windows 11 is the most inclusively designed version of Windows with new accessibility improvements that were built for and by people with disabilities.
