Alert! This Microsoft Windows 11 warning is coming to your PC soon
Microsoft Windows 11 will send a warning to your PC soon. It’s a gentle reminder that you haven’t done anything about a big problem.
Microsoft Windows 11 debuted in late 2021 with stricter system requirements to install the new operating system than previous ones. It is a new smart operating system that requires a huge amount of resources from PCs and laptops. With the earlier version of Windows, Microsoft tried to maintain the system requirements from one version of Windows to another so that the upgrade could go through seamlessly. But with Windows 11, Microsoft has gone the extra step to warn anyone who doesn’t have a modern PC or laptop that they won’t be supported by the company. This means that those PCs and laptops would not receive any updates and it might be a major security issue for the user. In fact, Microsoft has limited the processors that can be used to run Windows 11. In fact, it has pretty much banned older computer users. Although Microsoft did not prevent these users from downloading Windows 11, it told them that their gadgets were incompatible and that they should get new ones. Therefore, systems that do not meet one of Microsoft’s minimum requirements receive this warning: “This PC does not meet all system requirements for Windows 11”. The problem was dead and buried, but now it looks like it will be revived.
Now, even if your device is already installed and working well with Windows 11, soon there might be a new alert from the company warning you that your PC is incompatible. it will remind you that “System requirements are not met”. So far, a Windows 11 experience on an unsupported PC has been similar to someone using it on a fully supported system. Indeed, despite Microsoft warning that it would not provide core security updates, it continued to release updates.
However, recently Twitter user “Albacore” shared a screenshot revealing that Microsoft may have added a new reminder. The Tweet reads: “Upcoming versions of Windows 11 will include a small reminder about system requirements above the system settings in case your device does not meet them.” However, don’t worry, this little reminder does not impact the functionality of using Windows 11 on your device. In fact, users who use Windows 11 with an incompatible device already know this fact before installing it.
Microsoft has not provided any clarification on this warning indicating that incompatible Windows 11 devices may not receive future updates after the initial warning. It is possible that the remark was made only as a precaution. But it’s also possible that future updates, such as feature updates, won’t install on incompatible devices, leaving you with a compromised system. This is something you will need to assess and act on.
