Microsoft launches Windows 11 – the company’s first major update in six years – last week, October 5. Available as a free download for existing Windows 10 users, but because you are Microsoft, you may not receive the notification on your PC. He rides it on the steps. Those will have the first new devices in the lineup, so as your computer gets older, be prepared to be patient.

Microsoft Launched “Launched and Measured” launches, with new qualified devices first receiving the upgrade and the rest providing free upgrades from mid-October 2022. Microsoft Windows 11 ensures that those who buy a new laptop can update it first before the manufacturer pre-installs it.

If you are in the market for a new laptop, make sure the laptop you are buying is already installed with Windows 11 because you know that your new machine will work. And while most newer PCs are compatible with the new operating system, buying one that already runs Windows 11 will save you the hassle of upgrading yourself.

For those who are upgrading their Windows 10 operating system, wait for the Windows 11 update to be notified to you within the next six months. If you are lucky enough to receive this notice in the next few weeks, I encourage you to wait a bit. Allow Microsoft to release an update or two before proceeding to fix problems with previous downloads. Updates are released on the second Tuesday of each month. I will wait until Tuesday, November 9 for the second update for Windows 11 to download the new operating system for security. It is especially important for those who have a computer to rely on – a case may indicate a major delay and you will have to wait another month for repairs.

We should not be surprised if such a huge update can cause problems. It is true that Windows 11 has been available for pre-testing since last June, but considering all PC operating systems, models and configurations, there are still problems in the hands of the public. For example, there are reports that some people are experiencing slow Wi-Fi connectivity while releasing movies, using VPN and browsing the Internet. According to Microsoft’s “Windows 11 Popular Issues and Notifications” page, the problem is due to incompatibility between Windows 11 and Intel’s “Killer” and SmartByte network software. Microsoft said it was working on a security update on October 12 and was targeting the release.

When you are ready to update, save all the necessary documents to your computer before you begin the process. You can upload documents such as Microsoft OneDrive or Google Drive to the cloud or copy them to an external hard drive or a convenient thumbnail. If for some reason you have a problem during the upgrade, your files will be safe and accessible, even if they are on another device.

For those of you who want to upgrade to Windows 11 and have not received official notification from Microsoft, do not be fooled by the fake version. They may come with fake malware and other harmful substances. To get rid of them, if you do not already have Windows 10. Buy and download it from Microsoft. There are no legal ways to cross the line, so be patient.

There are always handles when upgrading to a new operating system. how? They know their current system or maybe their machines do not support Windows 11. In either case, you can safely run Windows 10 until October 2025, when Microsoft stops supporting it.
