Windows has always been backbone of personal and business innovation worldwide. The web was born and grew up on Windows. It’s the place where many of us wrote our first email, played our first PC game and wrote our first line of code. Windows is the place people go to create, to connect, to learn and to achieve – a platform over a billion people today rely on.
Today, we’re very thrilled to introduce you to Windows 11, a new Windows experience that’s designed to bring you closer to the people and things you love.

Get ready for Windows 11
Windows 11 isn’t here yet, but it will be a free upgrade in the fall, with some caveats attached. At long last, Windows 11 will be 64-bit only. This doesn’t mean 32-bit applications aren’t supported, but 32-bit processors won’t be able to install the OS. Given that 64-bit CPUs debuted in the consumer market 18 years ago, we’re pretty fine with dropping 32-bit OS support. Minimum specifications have increased: TPM 2.0 modules are now required and Windows 10 Home users will be required to have a Microsoft account.
