Just as Microsoft rolls out the first build of Windows 11 to users that have joined the Windows Insider program, the company has also decided to pull out the PC Health Check tool from general distribution. The simple tool was originally released on the same day the company officially announced the new operating system.
PC Health Check tool is really simple to help users determine whether their machine is able to support Windows 11 or otherwise. However, the first iteration of the app was panned by users who found themselves rather baffled when PC Health Check informed them that their machine was not good enough for Windows 11 even though it generally meets the operating system’s minimum requirements.
This is mainly because the PC Health Check didn’t tell the user what exactly their machine is lacking to run Windows 11. Microsoft then rolled out an update to provide more context to users which have indeed made the tool slightly more helpful, especially given that Windows 11 requirements are quite specific in terms of supported CPU and TPM 2.0 chip.
Nevertheless, Microsoft has since acknowledged user’s feedback that the level of information provided by the PC Health Check is still not accurate or detailed enough. The company didn’t provide any confirmed date for the app’s release but has said that it will be back as we get closer to Windows 11’s general availability later this year.
