While not many machines running Windows 7 will now be compatible with Windows 11, there will be exceptions. And you won’t have to give up your favorite apps on such machines, either.

They are quite strict with the latest Microsoft operating system, Windows 11 hardware requirements (especially with regards to the processor), so unfortunately there is a chance that a current average Windows 7 machine can no longer be upgraded. There are exceptions, of course, given that Windows 7 is still the second most popular operating system, although it has not received support since January 2020. So, those running Windows 7 on a hardware capable computer (especially in the business sector) you can really plan to upgrade your workstation to the new operating system (when available).

However, application compatibility can be an issue, and this is one of the reasons why some people are reluctant to migrate to a newer operating system. However, Microsoft assures users that there is no reason not to upgrade to the new operating system, at least when it comes to application compatibility. “Microsoft is committed to keeping its applications running on the latest versions of the software, and Windows 11 is built with compatibility in mind. We can promise that applications that run on Windows 7 / 8.1 / 10 will also run on Windows 11, ”writes the Redmond giant. App Assure (available to those who purchase at least 150 licenses) is also mentioned, which, as before, guarantees participants that if an application does not run on the new operating system, Microsoft will fix the problem for free.
