Windows 11 is now available as a free upgrade and will begin rolling out to eligible Windows 10 PCs.
We expect all eligible devices to be offered the free upgrade to Windows 11 by mid-2022. If you have a Windows 10 PC that’s eligible for the upgrade, Windows Update will let you know when it’s available. You can also check to see if Windows 11 is ready for your device by clicking the Start button, and then go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and select Check for updates.
A few highlights on Windows 11 include:
- With Start, we’ve put you and your content at the center. Start utilizes the power of the cloud and Microsoft 365 to show you your recent files no matter what device you were viewing them on.
- Snap Layouts, Snap Groups and Desktops provide an even more powerful way to multitask and optimize your screen real estate.
- Chat from Microsoft Teams integrated into the taskbar provides a faster way to connect to the people you care about.
- Windows 11 is the most inclusively designed version of Windows with new accessibility improvements that were built for and by people with disabilities.
Seton Hall provided laptops have been tested and are verified to work with Windows 11. Users running aging software or custom programs may experience issues in the rollout process. The Technology Service Desk is available 24/7 via the Self-Service portal where users may chat with a live technician, open a ticket, or schedule an appointment.
