Go to your settings and select 'Update & Security.'
Once on your Updates & Security page, you'll see several things.
First, you'll be able to check if your current version of Windows has any updates. If you're not looking to update to the newest version of Windows, and would rather just update your current version (if there's one available), you can do so right here. As you can see on the image above, my current version of Windows does not need an update.
If you're looking to update to a new version of Windows, check out step 3!
If you're looking to update your version of Windows to the newest version, you'll see an option to do so on the right side of your Updates & Security, as pictured above.
Please Note: Make sure your PC is compatible with the newest version of Windows. You should see a note that tells you if your PC is compatible, but ff you're still unsure, you'll see a link that says 'Check device specifications' that you can click on. Clicking this link takes you to a page where you can check if your PC is compatible with the newest version of Windows based on your PC's CPU. I highly recommend this step if you have any questions about your PC's compatibility.
If you're ready to move forward, click 'See if it's ready to install.'
At this point you'll see a message telling you whether or not the new version of Windows is available for you to download and install. As you can see, my PC is ready!
Click download and install, and your PC will automatically begin the process of updating your Windows version. You'll still be able to do things on your PC while the process takes place, but you will be prompted to restart your PC once the new version of Windows has been downloaded and installed.
Once your PC is restarted, you'll have the new version of Windows on your PC!
There are so many new features in Windows 11 it's almost hard to keep up with them all.
