Windows 11 Is Now Available In India: Everything You Need To Know

Microsoft has started rolling out Windows 11 in India. The latest software is made available through a free upgrade on eligible Windows 10 PCs and on new PCs with Windows 11 pre-installed.

The company has announced that “new preinstalled Windows 11 devices from partners such as Asus, HP and Lenovo have started rolling out, with more to follow soon from partners such as Acer and Dell”.

Microsoft says the new Windows 11 users will appear and must accept the Microsoft software license terms after selecting “Download and Install” before the download begins.

How to get Windows 11 on Windows 10 devices

If your PC is running Windows 10, you can use the PC Health Check app to see if your device is eligible for an upgrade. This essentially checks that your PC meets the minimum system requirements required for Windows 11. You can then check that the Windows 11 upgrade is ready for your specific device by opening Windows Update settings.

Just go to Settings> Update & Security> Windows Update and click “Check for Updates”. When your device is eligible and ready to upgrade, you will be presented with the option to download and install. When you’re ready to install Windows 11, you can simply select Download and Install.

Windows 11 features

The latest software update for Windows 11 brings a new user interface and performance improvements. You will also see a brand new Windows Store. It offers a new center-aligned taskbar and a start button. Microsoft removed the live tiles that have existed in some form since Windows 8. You will now see a grid of icons that can be rearranged and pinned to the new start menu.

There are rounded corners as well as widgets that contain things like your calendar, the weather, or the sports leaderboard. The new operating system also brings an improved system tray with a new split notification and quick action user interface. In addition, according to Microsoft, the new update offers users faster and more efficient performance with 40 percent smaller updates in the background. You can read more about the changes here.
