Upgrade your Samsung PC to Windows 11

Samsung PC ready to upgrade to Windows 11

Windows 11 is here! It includes new, intuitive features to help you navigate your PC. If you haven’t upgraded your device yet, you can use the PC Health Check app, which is available from the Microsoft website. The app will check if your PC has the recommended system requirements to install Windows 11. You can also upgrade through the Windows Update program on your PC.

Note: To upgrade to Windows 11, your device must be running Windows 10 (version 2004 or later).

The PC Health Check app will help determine your PC’s compatibility with Windows 11. However, below are some basic requirements:

  • Processor: 1GHz or faster.

  • Memory: 4GB RAM.

  • Storage: 64GB or larger storage device.

  • Graphics card: Compatible with DirectX 12 or later with WDDM 2.0 driver.
