Microsoft Launches More Stable Version of Windows 11 Beta

After being announced at the end of last June, Microsoft has finally launched the first beta of Windows 11 for users. Previously this new generation operating system was available to Windows Insider Program experts who chose the Dev channel.
Previously, Microsoft only recommended developers or users who were truly experts to install the Dev version of Windows 11 because this version was still unstable and had many bugs. In this beta, Microsoft promises Windows 11 will be a little more stable as its build is confirmed directly by Microsoft.

This beta version of Windows 11 is definitely good news for users who can’t wait to try out this latest operating system, but are hesitant because of the many bugs. But Microsoft still doesn’t recommend installing Windows 11 on major devices used every day.

For users who are already members of the Dev channel in the Windows Insider Program, they can immediately switch to the Beta channel. The trick is to go to the Settings menu> Windows Update> Windows Insider Program> Select your Insider Settings and then select the Beta channel.

Usually moving from the Dev channel to Beta requires a reinstallation of the operating system. But the Insider Program’s Twitter account says the process can be done in minutes and the device just needs to be restarted, as quoted from The Verge, Friday (30/7/2021).

For users who are still using Windows 10, you can also try the Windows 11 version by joining the Insider Program. But Microsoft warns that although more stable, Windows 11 is still a beta version that still has bugs, crashes and lacks some new features.

If you want to use Windows 11 bug -free, just wait for the final version to be released later this year’s holiday season.

Before installing the beta version of Windows 11, you must first check whether the device being used complies with Microsoft’s provisions. The minimum specifications set by Microsoft are PCs with 8th generation Intel processors or second generation AMD Ryzen.

The device must also have a minimum of 4GB of RAM and a minimum of 64 GB of storage. Although the minimum specs are relatively low, some devices that should qualify won’t be able to install Windows 11 because the TPM 2.0 module hasn’t been activated, so it’s best to check first in Device Manager.

If the device is eligible and has joined the Insider Program, the installation of Windows 11 is easy, namely:

- Go to the Settings menu> Updates & Security> Windows Insider Programs> click Get Started

- Connect a Microsoft account

- Select a Beta channel in Insider settings

- Restart the device

- Go to Settings> Updates & Security> Check for Updates to see if a Windows 11 update is available

- Download and install Windows 11 on the device then follow the on -screen instructions
