But nevertheless, users can (here it is first so you can download Windows 11). But if you’re setting up a Windows 11 Home account, as most people who will use it on a personal device will be, there are a few additional steps you’ll need to take before accessing the new features.
We’ll break down everything you need to know before downloading Windows 11, includingto make sure it meets the new requirements. And this is what you should know if you are thinking about . This story was recently updated.
Create a Microsoft account (or sign in to yours)
To set up Windows 11 Home, you will need a Microsoft account, which gives you access to Microsoft products and services. Don’t worry, it’s free to create one.
In the past, it was possible to choose not to create a Microsoft account and use a local one instead (although the process was not intuitive). It seems that with Windows 11, you will need to create a Microsoft account to get started. After that point, you can delete your Microsoft account and sign in with a local account if you want, and this won’t affect the way you use the operating system, but you won’t be able to sync content across multiple devices. A Microsoft account also allows for an easier transfer from your old PC to a new one and more options for logging in.
Windows 11 Pro and the version built for business use will not require people to sign in to Microsoft accounts.
Here’s how to create a free Microsoft account as Windows 11 is deployed:
one. Go to account.microsoft.com and click Check in.
two. Tap Create one to create a new account. (If you already have an account, you can log in here.)
3. Enter your email address. Or, if you prefer to create a new email address through Microsoft (which will appear as @ outlook.com), click Get a new email address, enter what you want, and click Next.
Four. Create a password and click next.
5. Enter your country / region and date of birth, and click next.
6. Check your email for a verification code and click next.
Connect to the Internet
To download Windows 11 Home (and create a Microsoft account), you will also need to be connected to the Internet. The reason for this is that Windows 11 will be delivered primarily as a Windows update, just likehas been.
You will also need the internet for future updates and to take advantage of some of the new, according to Microsoft.
This requirement can pose a problem for those who lack easy access to the Internet. However, after connecting for the initial setup, you don’t need to reconnect if you don’t want to (although you should get important security updates that prevent vulnerabilities).
If you are downloading Windows 11 on your current computer, make sure you are connected to the internet before starting the process. If you buy a new Windows 11 computer after the operating system has generally been released, you should be prompted to connect to the Internet when you are setting it up.
