This page will be updated as and when there is news on changes or updates to Windows 11,


Windows 11 receives security updates and fixes monthly or as required, and once yearly it receives a major feature update (also known as a build update)


25/03/24 - Windows 11 2024 Update (24H2)

The third major update to Windows 11 (24H2) is expected to be released around September / October 2024.


For details of what will be changing in this update to Windows 11 see the What's New in Windows 11 2024 Update (24H2) section.


This update will be free for all Windows 11 users and will automatically download and install – it is being released in waves so not everyone will receive it immediately, but you will eventually get it in the days/weeks/months after release.


N.B. For the first few weeks it will appear as an 'optional' update which you can choose to install via Windows Settings, after a period of testing it will then start to install automatically on all devices.


If you are offered this new version in the first few weeks of release then my advice would be to postpone it for a while to allow for any initial problems to be resolved before you go ahead and upgrade, as with previous releases there were quite a few initial teething issues which caused some major problems to customers who had chosen to upgrade immediately. I will update this page and/or my news page when I am happy it is safe for you to install.


Once it has finished downloading in the background you will be prompted to restart your computer to complete the upgrade (or it will do it automatically the next time you shutdown/restart)


For those upgrading from an older build then during the installation / update process you will see the screen below which shows you how the update is progressing, your computer will also restart multiple times.

24/06/21 - Windows 11 Launch Event

Today Microsoft announced that a brand new version of Windows will be arriving later this year.


Yes, you read that correctly, despite years of Microsoft telling consumers and partners like myself that they would not release a new version of Windows, and that Windows 10 would continue to evolve and be updated twice a year they have now changed their minds....


Windows 11 will be coming later this year......



It will be a free upgrade for existing Windows 10 users BUT it has different hardware requirements than Windows 10 so will not run on some older machines, I will provide more details of these requirements at a later date.



Below is the introduction video from the launch event.
