On the 5th of October a new era is starting for Windows users. Windows 11 will be officially available. As far as we know Windows 10 users will be able to get the Windows 11 free. But be aware that does not mean you will start to use the Windows 11 not the 5th of October directly. Because for different machines there will be different date to upgrade to Windows 11. On the other hand, if you don’t want to upgrade to Windows 11, don’t worry. You will still be getting support for Windows 10 till October 2025. Another possibility is that your pc may not be able to meet minimum requirements. So first thing is to check these details.

- 4gb ram
- 64gb storage
- GPU compatible with DirectX 12

THEN HOW TO UPGRADE
Upgrade process will be seamless since Windows already has update feature inside. When you are eligible for the update, you will receive a notification. Then you need to download the new OS. This will be also automatically done throughout the upgrade. So just grab a coffee and wait for it to download. After download and installation, you may start using your brand new OS.
