Microsoft released Windows 11 Beta channel build 22000.588 (KB5011563) earlier today to Insiders on the Beta and Release Preview channels. If you missed it, the new build has in it a long list of fixes and small improvements. And while the changelog does not mention it, Build 22000.568 also brings the "System requirements not met" reminder to the Windows 11 Beta and Release Preview channels.

Windows 11 unsupported PC reminder

First discovered in one of the Windows 11 Dev channel leaks back in early February, we learnt that Microsoft was going to add this watermark on the desktop in an effort to remind users they were running Windows 11 on an unsupported system. Alongside the watermark, there will also be a reminder inside the Settings app. In fact, the new watermark on the Beta channel build 22000.588 guides users to settings as it says "Go to Settings to learn more".

On the Windows 11 Dev Channel, this reminder finally landed with the Build 22557, and it looks like now it is on the Beta and Release Preview channels too.

If you don't want this reminder, there is already a guide that can help you remove the "System requirements not met" watermark from desktop. Speaking of Windows 11 system requirements, here's what Microsoft recommends as the minimum specifications for a device to be Windows 11-ready.
