PC Health Check is the lightweight system information listing application from Microsoft Corporation (Windows 11 Compatibility Tool), that allows Windows 10 users to officially check if their PC is fulfilling all requirements that are needed for the installation of Windows 11, the brand-new operating system that arrived on the market at the end of 2021.

While this Microsoft PC Health Check: Windows 11 Test Tool has the ability to list some of the most basic hardware components present in desktop or laptop PCs, the main feature of this app is mostly centered on answering the question “Can I run Windows 11?”. Sadly, its worst feature is that it does not explicitly list all the requirements that a user’s PC needs to pass.

How to check if your laptop can run Win 11

The app is distributed online as an automated installer that can be easily downloaded and deployed on local storage by just following a few simple on-screen instructions.

Once installed, the PC Health Checker app can be run on any version of Windows 10. The app features just a single dashboard screen that lists a few of the important hardware and OS features listings, which include the name of the PC, its CPU, RAM size, storage size, and the presence of Windows 10 features such as Backup & Sync, One Drive Syncing, Windows Update state (the last installed update), Storage capacity, and the last Startup time.

However, the main feature of the app is placed on the very top, where a large promotional banner introduces Windows 11 to the users. There, anyone can simply click on the blue “Check now” button and receive an instant prompt that will announce whether or not the host PC will be able to receive automatic FREE updates from Windows 10 to Windows 11.

Minimum System Requirements to Run Windows 11

The PC Health Check tool primarily checks for strict hardware requirements of Windows 11, which include at least 1GHz dual-core 64-bit only CPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB or more of storage space, DX12 capable graphic card, and most controversial, the presence of UEFI & Secure Boot capable motherboard, and Trusted Platform Module (TPM).

These last two requirements essentially mean that only owners of fairly new hardware components will be granted access to the Windows 11 update. According to Microsoft, these requirements were placed to ensure greater security for their users and their data.

While lightweight, this system diagnostic app can help anyone determine whether or not their PC is ready for Windows 11. It does not provide much information about the upgrade process, but at least it can answer which part of the hardware requirement is lacking. PC Health Check (Windows 11 Compatibility Tool) is 100% FREE and can be run only on Windows 10 PCs.
