Windows 11 News: Microsoft has released the highly anticipated Windows 11 Insider Preview. So, how will Windows 10 owners install this update?
Software giant Microsoft has released Windows 11 Insider Preview today, as promised at its event last week. This version, which can be installed by Windows 10 owners who are registered with Windows Insider, manages to attract attention with a number of innovations it offers to the user.
Although Microsoft says Windows 11 requires it to run on Intel 8th generation or AMD Zen 2 processors and later, preview versions can be installed on devices running Intel 7th generation and AMD Zen 1 processors. In other words, we can say that Microsoft has taken a step back in terms of system requirements.
Regarding this issue, Microsoft; “By providing preview builds to the various systems in our Windows Insider Program, we will learn how Windows 11 performs more broadly across CPU models and will report any future adjustments we need to make to our minimum system requirements.” made a statement.
How to install Windows 11 Insider Preview?
From the Windows 10 Start menu, go to Settings → Update & Security > Windows Update → Check for updates and install any available updates.
After all updates are installed, go to Windows Insider Settings, sign in with your Microsoft account. Select Development Channel. Review the Privacy Statement and program terms. Confirm these terms and click Restart to complete the setup of your device.
When your device restarts, go to Settings → Update & Security > Windows Update → Check for updates to download and install Windows 11.
This version, which is currently in the testing phase, may come with some problems. So don’t forget to backup your PC.
For a smoother experience, Windows 11 also offers a dynamic refresh rate that automatically increases your PC’s refresh rate as you scroll, and lowers it when you don’t need it so your laptop can save power. This works on laptops with the correct display hardware and graphics driver. You can enable this feature in Settings > System > Display > Advanced screen. It also adds Auto HDR, content adaptive brightness control (CABC) disabling, HDR support to color-managed apps.
This time, Microsoft seems to be competing with Apple’s macOS on the operating system. Windows 11, which approaches macOS in terms of design, will be talked about a lot with the innovations it offers.
