Microsoft updates PC Health Check to show why your device is ineligible for Windows 11

Windows PC Health Check app saying that the PC cannot be updated to Windows 11 due to CPU issues

Yesterday, Microsoft finally unveiled the much-anticipated Windows 11 update. The new update comes with an updated UI, performance, and productivity improvements. Microsoft also released the minimum system requirements for Windows 11 which includes Secure Boot and TPM 2.0 among other things, but the latter can be bypassed for now.

If you were excited about Windows 11 but were having issues with the PC Health Check app, then you are in luck. Microsoft has released a new update for the app that will now tell users why a device does not support Windows 11. The feature should help users identify hardware limitations and potentially rectify them in order to update to Windows 11 when it arrives.

The new update will download automatically for users who already have the app. If you want to download the app, you can do so from here.
