Windows 11 will be a free upgrade for all Windows 10 users. Apparently, Microsoft stated there won’t be a time limit on upgrading, giving you ample time to get the new OS. For those that are unaware, Windows 11 is going to be a free update for everyone currently on Windows 10. When the time arrives, you will need to go online to download, install, and then activate the home version of Windows 11.
- I’ve tested a few games and apps, download from here and all run as if they were performing natively on my device without having to run Android in the background.

The easiest way is to head into settings on your device, but you may prefer to shorten this with a keyboard shortcut or even change it through your graphics card settings.

Windows 11 adds new features like Auto HDR,which uses AI to provide automatic HDR to games that lack it, boosting brightness, contrast, and visible detail.

Once you’ve restarted, open up the Windows Update app. You can do this by searching for ‘Windows Update’ in the search bar in the taskbar of Windows 10. If you just want a PC that works as normal, we’d stick with normal Windows 11 for now.
The biggest controversy surrounding Windows 11 in the run-up to release was whether you’ll even be able to install it on systems currently running Windows 10. Overall, if you are used to Windows 10, this new upgrade should not hinder your experience with anything unfamiliar or unexpected. As I said, the update is more about design than function.

But the problem here is that Windows 11 is just bad at it. Instead of solving users’ problems, they have rather created more hassle for the user. Last October, I received a notification that said my Lenovo Yoga X380 was eligible for the upgrade to Windows 11. As skeptical as I always am of Microsoft, I did not go for it right away. I was waiting until Microsoft was done with all the Windows 11 beta versions.
