Free Windows 11 compatibility checker

Ashampoo Windows 11 Compatibility Check is a utility software that helps users check if their devices are ready for Windows 11. It is an assessment app that allows you to ensure that your computer is capable of running the new operating system. It is available in full for free and offers multiple commercial licenses.

Unlike third-party compatibility checkers, Ashampoo Windows 11 Compatibility Check does not only provide the compatibility result. It also lets you know the reasons and possible solutions. However, note that your PC should support UEFI firmware, secure boot, TPM (Trusted Platform Module), and DirectX.

What does the app do?

In June 2021, Microsoft announced the arrival of Windows 11. With the newest iteration of the Windows operating system, users can experience a different working environment and new methods to collaborate with others. However, it needs certain requirements, which you need to meet before you can install it on your PC. Microsoft released a PC Health Check tool earlier but eventually withdrew after failing to provide reasons for incompatibility.

Ashampoo Windows 11 Compatibility Check is an alternative that you can use. As mentioned, this tool can run a thorough check on your computer. Then, it lets you know if it is capable of running the new operating system.  Not only that, but it also gives you the reasons and possible solutions to this incompatibility. With this, you can prepare your device before the new OS is officially launched.

The app comes with an intuitive workflow. It displays the list of requirements on one panel and the status of your device on the other side. With this, you can view them side by side and make comparisons. However, as noted, your PC should support UEFI firmware, secure boot, TPM (Trusted Platform Module), and DirectX to run this app. It also needs substantial RAM, free space, screen size, and CPU.

Should you download it?

All in all, Ashampoo Windows 11 Compatibility Check is a handy tool that helps you get a quick analysis of your PC. With this, you can determine if you can run the latest OS without glitches. The app is easy to use and only takes a minute to complete a thorough scan. However, it does not allow you to save the scan results. Additionally, it requires sufficient memory and resources.
