Update 26th May: Microsoft has just updated its Health Check-up app which now provides more detailed info on requirements not met. 
On the above image, you can see that, now Health Checkup app will let you know the exact reason if it shows your system can't run Windows 11. With this specific answer now you can make rectification or modification to a particular issue to make your system compatible with Windows 11.

Microsoft just announced its latest Windows 11 and many new features with minimal and clean UI experience. With this Microsoft have also benchmarked the minimum system requirements to run Windows 11. So if you are wondering that your system does support Windows 11 or not then here is a quick guide for checking that.

To check the compatibility of your system with Windows 11, Microsoft has released a small application [13mb] named PC Health Check app that lets you check the compatibility of your PC for the upcoming Windows 11 update.

Windows 11 will be available to Windows 10 users for free.😊

Minimum System Requirements for Windows 11

  • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with 2 or more cores on a compatible 64-bit processor or System on a Chip (SoC)
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Storage: 64 GB or larger storage device

Check Your Windows 10 PC Can it Run Windows 11

  1. Click here to download the PC Health Check-Up [Free App] on your windows system.
  2. Now, install the application and launch it.
  3. You will get the basic information of your system on the application window like System name, RAM, Storage and system age.
  4. On the same window, you will find a banner saying “Introducing Windows 11”. Click on “Check Now” to see if your PC is compatible with Windows 11.
  5. Within a couple of seconds, the PC Health Check app will let you know if your PC meets the system requirement to run Windows 11.

Note: PC Health Check app prompt you “The PC can’t run Windows 11”, this doesn't mean that your system can't support Windows 11 even your system competes for the minimum system requirement benchmark. This prompt is because most of the PCs keep the TPM (Trusted Platform Module) disabled even if the module is present on the motherboard. 

Enable TPM on your system

As we mentioned above, most of the PCs have TPM disabled by default, and for this PC Health Check-Up app shows “The PC can’t run Windows 11”. To solve this issue, just follow the below steps:
  • Restart your system and enter into the BIOS setting.
  • On the Advanced tab, look for TPM/fTPM and enable it. 
  • The next step is to enable “Secure Boot” as well. 
  • Now run the PC Health Check-Up app to check if your PC can run Windows 11.
That all! Hope you got the process to check the eligibility of your system for Windows 11.


Updates for Windows Insider Program of Windows 11

If you like to a part of the Windows Insider Program and your PC meets the system requirements to run Windows 11 then also you may not get the Windows 11 stable update [Final Version].
Microsoft in an official blog post explained all the points regarding Dev and Beta channels. You can check the below chart [share by Microsoft] which gives brief details on the Windows Insider Program of Windows 11.

Moreover, all Windows Insiders who have been installing Windows 10 Dev Channel builds on their PCs up through June 24, 2021, will be allowed to continue installing Windows 11 Insider Preview builds even if their PC does not meet the system requirements. However, there’s a catch, and you need to be careful while installing the Dev Channel builds.
Furthermore, Microsoft added -
If at any point something goes wrong on one of these PCs that requires having to go back to Windows 10, you can use the media creation tool here to go back to Windows 10. These PCs will not be given another exception and not allowed to upgrade to Windows 11 Insider Preview builds again. They will be treated as a new PC and the minimum hardware requirements will be enforced as highlighted above.

Once Windows 11 is generally available, these PCs will be opted out of flighting and will not be able to receive future Windows 11 Insider Preview builds. These PCs must clean install back to Windows 10 with the media (ISOs) that we provide and can then join the Release Preview Channel to preview Windows 10 updates.
