So you have heard the entire buzz about Windows 11. Microsoft announced the next generation of Windows called Windows 11 a few months ago. It has a new Start menu, a new taskbar, new design elements, and new wallpapers. Also, it is going to be able to run Android apps. These are all big changes that naturally want you to try.
The official release date of Windows 11 has not been set yet, so we will have to wait for the tech giant to reveal the same thing. Fortunately, ahead of its official release, Microsoft is making it easier than ever to download Windows 11. Its preview version can be tried before its final release. Users will now be able to “clean install” the beta version of Windows 11 on any compatible PC. They will also be able to update from Windows 10 to the new operating system (OS) via an official ISO file.
How to install Windows 11 easily
To get the official Windows 11 ISO file, all compatible PC users need to sign up through the official website of Microsoft for Windows Insider. If you have a Windows 10 license, you can sign up for the Insider program by visiting the company’s site to download Windows 11 update.
Once the sign-up process is completed, visit the Windows Insider Preview Downloads page and choose an option between a Beta Channel and Dev Channel build to download. Our advice would be to download the beta version instead of the Dev version, keeping in mind the stability. Microsoft is currently offering the ISO files for Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.160 as a download option. Users can select these files to install the Windows 11 operating system on any compatible PC.
In order to install the next generation of Windows, it should be noted that users must have a valid Windows 10 license to activate Windows 11 in case they choose to use this ISO. Also, to run Windows 11, your computer must have a 64-bit processor at 1GHz or faster. Apart from this, you should have at least 4GB RAM and 64GB free disk space on your computer. It must also have a compatible graphics card with DirectX 12 and WDDM 2.0 drivers. The device must support Secure Boot and UEFI with TPM 2.0.
After downloading the file, users can double-click the ISO file to open it and update their PC to Windows 11. In case you are using the ISO file to clean install or upgrade a Windows 11 PC, this build of the operating system will bring all the major Windows 11 features so far. Some of the features include – the newly redesigned Start Menu and Taskbar Microsoft Teams integration, a new chat app, and much more.
Additionally, for Windows 11, Microsoft has teased a new Paint app which may be making its way soon to Windows Insiders. Downloading the ISO file and using it to install the new OS will get you access to the latest features.
