Windows 11 finally came to all users – this is the new iteration of the iconic Microsoft operating system, which succeeds the Windows 10.
This new system has many new features, such as support for Auto HDR, a new design, and the possibility to run Android applications in the future. In addition, Windows 11 will also be ideal for those who like video games, as it has several features and tools able to help you get the most out of your video games.
But a question arises: how to install Windows 11 on the PC? In this guide, we will then explain to you everything you need to know about installing Windows 11 on your machine so that you can start enjoying it now.
How to download Windows 11
Before you get started, make sure your PC meets the minimum specifications for Windows 11 – you can find the minimum requirements and recommended requirements for Windows 11 here. If so, you should back up your PC before proceeding.
This ensures that if something goes wrong – and upgrading to a new operating system has its risks – your important files and settings can at least be restored.
Once that’s done, go to Microsoft’s Windows 11 download page.
How to install Windows 11 on your PC
There are several ways to install Windows 11 on your PC, but one is much simpler than the others and which you can see below.
The easiest way to download and install Windows 11 is to update the device you are currently using. On the Windows 11 download page, click ‘Download now.’
Then follow the instructions to download and install Windows 11 on your device.
This is undoubtedly the easiest way to get Windows 11, but if you want to install it on another computer (which, let’s imagine, has no Internet connection), you can do it via a USB stick or DVD.
Therefore, you will need a USB stick with at least 8GB of storage – make sure you don’t have any important files inside it, as this method will erase everything on it. You will have to download a tool from the Windows website that will format that USB stick and install a Windows 11 installation version. This can also be done with a blank DVD.
Since this is a more complex process, check out the video below:
Once that’s done, insert the pen into the PC where you want to install Windows 11 and restart the device.
It may be necessary to make the PC boot from the inserted USB stick or DVD. To do this, when the manufacturer’s logo appears on the screen, press F12 or F2 (this varies by manufacturer) to access the boot menu. This is where you will tell the computer to go ahead and boot from disk or pen instead of loading Windows as it normally does.
Of course, we advise you to be very careful at this stage – investigate well before you do this and, if you are lost, ask someone for help.
And ready! Soon, you’ll have your machine running the new Windows 11. Don’t forget to use the comments box and give your opinion about Windows 11.
Finally, it’s worth noting that Windows 11 will be a free upgrade if you have Windows 7 or higher. This means that there is no reason to try to download a pirated version of it, as you can get the official version directly from Microsoft at no cost. However, as tempting as it may be to download Windows 11 right now, it might be a good idea to wait a bit so that any initial detected issues can be fixed quickly.
