That’s it! Windows 10 is almost over and Windows 11 is absolutely on top now. We’re getting ever deeper into the future and it is broken. Well, mostly. Windows 11 is actually pretty neat, but as with every launch of new software, there are issues. This could be Microsoft’s insistence that Teams is good and forcing us to stare at the logo or maybe you’re having issues just installing it?

We’ve been covering Windows 11 for a while now and have multiple guides on our dedicated hub, along with all the information about what’s new in the operating system.

Here’s the fat list of guides, tips, and more on what’s going on in Windows 11, as well as the few guides we have on Windows 10.

Goodbye, Windows 10

Windows 11 means that Windows 10 will eventually be put to bed, but when will Microsoft stop support for Windows 10? Find out here.

If you’re struggling to get the Health App Working, WhyNotWin11 gives more information. Along with this, you might need to upgrade your CPU or even activate a TPM for security reasons. Find out our best CPU choices, TPMs, and motherboards to upgrade to.

Here’s how to install Windows 11 with Microsoft’s help and without it.

If you’re not really in the mood to drop hundreds of dollars on new hardware, you can always just circumvent the TPM and hardware requirements, but risk being unsupported by Microsoft.

There are two methods to do this, one in the registry and one via a third-party program from Github.
