Windows 11 is here!

Can you believe it’s been 6 years since Windows 10 was launched?
The new and improved platform Windows 11 is allowing users to be more productive as well as a really nice fresh-looking feel to it. As with everything, it’s not all plain sailing. Don’t rush in without doing a little homework first, because there’s always a BUT along the journey.

If you’ve not done an upgrade before it can be tricky, so be cautious about pressing the upgrade button, take some advice. With so many devices having had an upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10, this means that they’ll probably not be Windows 11 compatible.

If your device is compatible and you wish to go for the upgrade, the first thing you need to do is a backup, just in case you need to roll back. Recovery drives need to be created.
If your device doesn’t meet the strict hardware specifications, you’ll need to budget for buying some additional memory, or processing power, or even a new device altogether.
One thing to note is that there’s a chip shortage so maybe devices aren’t as readily available as before so don’t leave it until the last minute to replace as you could be left waiting.

Plan ahead to avoid any disruption to your business.
