Windows 11 PC Health Check Returns Just in Time for Launch

Microsoft has re-released the PC Health Check app, which enables us to check if our PC is suitable to install Windows 11.

Microsoft released a new version of the PC Health Check app, which will thoroughly analyze your PC to make sure it's ready for Windows 11, due to debut on October 5 this year.

PC Health Check is available for now in a test build, which can only be downloaded by people who are part of the Insider program. For this reason, on the official Microsoft blog there was no mention of the release of the program or a list of changes from the previous version. We only know that the new edition is numbered 3.0.210914001.

The first version of PC Health Check was made available many months ago. However, the app was heavily flawed and incorrectly analyzed PCs for Windows 11 readiness. Microsoft released an update, but it didn't help much, so eventually the app was withdrawn from distribution.

Given the previous problems with PC Health Check, we shouldn't be surprised that this time the company decided to release the app quietly and exclusively as part of the Insider program.

Windows 11's requirements have caused quite a bit of controversy in recent months. Initially, it seemed that the system would be unavailable to many PC users. Eventually, however, Microsoft softened its approach, although the company warns that owners of older hardware may not receive full support.

Windows 11 will debut on October 5, this year. Upgrade to a new version of the system will be free for owners of W10.
