Windows 11

If you haven’t taken a look at our previous blog on “Windows 11 is here – Things you need to know on this interesting upgrade!!”, Do check it out. The former was based on the leaked developer version which was stable for normal use but digging deep and using it as our daily driver without a backup would have proved costly! So check this thread to know how you can download the official version here!

Step 1: Open Settings

Open Settings

Click on the Search bar found at the bottom left and type Settings. Then go to Update & Security which is the last option present.

Step 2: Windows Update

If you are on track with the updates, you’ll see that there will be no pending updates. If there’s anything available, Don’t Panic! Just ignore it and follow the next step.

Step 3: Windows Insider Program

The last option you’ll find in the left column will be the Windows Insider Program. Click on it and you’ll see this window. Make sure you are logged in to a valid Microsoft account.

Step 4: Change Insider settings

Most probably, we’ll all be using a stable version till now, but who knew, this crazy-fresh-new-looking Windows 11 will be the one worth trying. So change your Insider settings to Dev Channel and then go back.

Go back to the Windows Update window and click Check for updates! Within a few seconds, you’ll notice Windows 11 Insider Preview is available for your PC and it’ll start downloading!

Kind attention: If you do not have the TPM 2.0(which is usually a module present on the motherboard) or fail other requirements, sorry you cannot do it the official way (yet) 🙁

Step 6: Install and enjoy!

What next, just wait for the download to finish and then install once the Windows prompts to. The boot-up for the first time might take around 20-40 minutes.

Patience is bitter, but it's fruit is sweet
