PC Health Check Tool For Windows 11: Redux

The PC Health Check tool released initially by Microsoft earlier for checking PC compatibility with Windows 11 didn’t give sufficient information and hence was removed shortly.

Now, with the release of Windows 11 just a few days away, Microsoft has re-released this PC Health Check tool to include more details about the compatibility checks.

To use it, download and install it from here.

To get a second opinion about the Windows 11 compatibility tests, you can also use a third-party tool like WhyNotWin11.

Happy checking.
