No! Windows 11 and Windows 10 require roughly the same space on the hard drive!
However, if you do not reinstall Windows 11, additional storage space will be required during the upgrade process. Windows 11 cleans up this extra space around 10 days after the Windows 10 to Windows 11 upgrade is complete.
After upgrading, can I go back to Windows 10 if I don't like Windows 11?
Yes! After installing the MS Windows 11 upgrade, there is a 10-day period during which you can go back to Windows 10 while keeping the personal files and folders. After the 10 days, you'll need to back up your data and do a clean Windows 10 reinstall to get back to Windows 10.
Can my really old PC run / install Windows 11?
I have installed Windows 11 on devices prior to 2010. However, you can use the so-called PC Health Check app to determine whether your device is suitable for an upgrade to Windows 11. Many PCs that are less than four years old can be upgraded to Windows 11. You must be running the latest version of Windows 10 and meet the minimum hardware requirements.
How much does an upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 11 cost?
In that sense, it's free. But only Windows 10 PCs that are running the latest version of Windows 10 and that meet the minimum hardware specifications can upgrade. You can check that you have the latest updates for Windows 10 under Settings, Windows Update.
What is the difference between Windows 10 and Windows 11?
Windows 11 brings the performance and security of Windows 10 with a redesigned and refreshed look. It also comes with new tools, sounds, and apps. Every detail has been considered. All of this comes together to give you a new experience on your PC.
Can I upgrade to Windows 11 on Dell computers?
I have a couple of Dell PCs, the installation of Windows 11 was problem-free on the Dell computers, and I have already tested and validated some software. If your Dell computer is not older than 10 years, Windows 11 will probably also work on your Dell computer, but for older devices <2014 there is no official support, you have to take care of the necessary drivers yourself.
