We imagine by now that most everyone has started seeing notifications and pop-up messages from Microsoft concerning upgrade to the newest version to Windows 11. So the question is this something I need to do at this time? The short answer is “No, you do not have to rush to upgrade to the newest version.
At this time the upgrade is voluntary, the factors we at Ridgeline Computer Solutions, LLC, look at before recommending that a client upgrade their operating software are the following.
First of all is the computer able to meet the requirements of the new “operating system”. The windows 11 check your current computer and will let you know if it is able to move to the latest version. If your computer doesn’t pass, it maybe be as simple as upgrading certain parts of the computer, or it might be time to upgrade to a new one. These are things we can help with!
Second – Are my software programs supported? Unfortunately, all programs that the user need or use might not be compatible with the newest version. This can be an issue if the software team has not tested or made changes to the software. No one wants to come in after an update and find some things don’t work like they should. Lastly, at this time the upgrade is new and we all have time for all involved to like I like to say “work the bugs out.” With that being said if you want to stay with windows 10 not upgrade you have until October 14th of 2025 before support ends.
