Is your PC still running on an older Windows license? And would you like to upgrade to Windows 10? Then it is important to map out the system requirements of your PC. Especially when your PC has been around for several years, it may not have the basic requirements to install the latest version of Windows. Are you curious about the system requirements for Windows 10? Or would you like to know how to find out what the system requirements of your PC are? Then read on, we are happy to explain it to you!

Specific requirements for Windows 10

Microsoft Windows 10 was released in the summer of 2015. This is already five years ago, but not everyone has yet switched to this operating system. There are still some people who swear by Windows 7Windows 8 or even older versions like XP or Vista. However, sooner or later there will be a time where everyone has to switch to the latest Windows version. To avoid having to make the switch from your current license to the latest Windows 10 version in a heartbeat, we recommend that you now familiarize yourself with the requirements to upgrade your PC. Avoid surprises and find out in within minutes which system requirements your PC should have. When you wait until the last minute, your PC may be too old and therefore not function with Windows 10.

In order to install Windows 10, your PC must have some minimum system requirements. In the table below you will find the recommended system requirements stated by Microsoft:

Check the specifications of your PC

Now that you have insight into the system requirements of Windows 10, you probably want to know what the specifications of your PC are. You can find out these specification based on the following step-by-step plan:

  • Click on the “Start” icon in the menu bar
  • Then go to “Settings”
  • Then click on the “System” icon
  • Then click on “Info” at the bottom of the list
  • Here you will find the “Device Specifications” and “Windows Specifications”

Does your PC not meet the minimum requirements set by Microsoft as mentioned above? But do you want to upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10? Then, we recommend that you purchase a new PC which does meet the system requirements.


Prevent problems with your PC

Does your PC, unfortunately, not meet the recommended system requirements for Windows 10? But would you rather not buy a new PC? Then you run the risk that your PC will not function properly over time. A computer with a good operating system runs timely updates and is therefore well protected against viruses and other security risks. If your PC is still running on an older Windows license, chances are that you are susceptible to unnecessary risks. The older your operating system, the more likely it is that your PC will no longer be 100% up to date.

Prevent your PC from stopping to function and upgrade to Windows 10. Even if you need to purchase a new PC, we recommend that you do so. This way you can be sure that you can continue to use your PC for a number of years!
