Your Windows 10 PC is eligible but you still haven’t installed Windows 11 ? Get ready for Microsoft to remember your fond memories. Through a new update of its system, the firm is about to preach the good word to you during a subsequent start.
No rest for those who still haven’t migrated to Windows 11. Nearly a year after the launch of the new version of its operating system, Microsoft continues to encourage eligible users to migrate to Windows 11 as the OS entered its large-scale deployment phase last May.
Microsoft wants more people on Windows 11
Until now, the firm had already solicited users of Windows 10 21H1 (which is coming to the end of support) and had even encouraged users with PCs that remained under Windows 8 / 8.1 (whose end of support is expected on January 10 2023) to completely change the machine to take advantage of Windows 11.
Today Microsoft is going a little further to boost the adoption rate of Windows 11. We learn from Neowin that an update (KB5020683) will cause, once installed, the display of a new “OOBE” window (for Out of Box Experience) during future restarts on eligible machines (with Windows 10 version 2004, 20H2, 21H1, 21H2 or 22H2 in Home or Professional version)
… and less on Windows 10
Cut on the same model as the startup screens sometimes forcing the user to choose new settings or to accept a new license agreement, this window will allow Microsoft to present Windows 11 through several pages displayed consecutively. It will also and above all be possible to download and install Windows 11 directly from this interface.
A way to simplify the upgrade process even more… at least if your PC has the components required for this OS change. If you don’t have an 8 processore generation (or newer), that your machine does not have a TPM 2.0 chip and is not compatible with the Secure Boot device, this new window should not appear on your site.
