Before Getting Windows 11



Windows has recently released their newest operating system, Windows 11. LBNL IT does not recommend upgrading to Windows 11 at this time. We would like to caution our users to be careful before deciding to upgrade or install. 

You need to ask yourself the following questions before choosing to upgrade:

  • Is your computer hardware compatible?

  • Are all your peripheral devices compatible?

  • Is all your installed software compatible?

  • Do you have the installers and installation keys for that software, if you need to reinstall?


If you do upgrade, make sure to backup your computer before upgrading/installing.

Feel free to reach out to IT if you have any questions. You can contact our support staff by:
