Windows 11 has been out for over a year, and it’s one of the best operating systems the company has made. The initial release of Windows 11 brought a brand new design language with more gradients, colors, and rounded corners, along with many redesigned apps. More recently, the Windows 11 2022 Update made even more updates, adding new touch gestures for tablets, revamping the Task Manager, and much more. But Windows 11 is still new to many of us, thanks in part to high system requirements, plus it’s an optional update. If you want to get Windows 11 on your PC, there are a few ways to go about it.

Even if you’re not looking to upgrade, however, sometimes it can be good to perform a clean install of Windows 11, just to tidy things up and make the experience smoother again. It can also help if you’ve started to notice some issues with the OS. As such, let’s take a look at all the major ways you can download and install Windows 11 on your PC.
Before we get started, the first thing you’ll want to do is make sure your PC meets the system requirements for Windows 11. If you’re running Windows 10, you may find some new requirements that are harder to meet, like the 4GB of RAM, 64-bit CPU, or TPM 2.0 module. In fact, there’s a list of CPUs that are compatible, and it’s a fairly limited list.
Aside from that, it’s always best to be on the safe side before making upgrades like this, so make sure you’ve backed up your files to a cloud service or an external storage device, like a flash drive or external SSD.
Download Windows 11 using Windows Update
The easiest way to download Windows 11 right now is through Windows Update. The vast majority of supported PCs running Windows 10 should be able to find Windows 11 through Windows Update.
To do this, simply open the Settings app on your Windows 10 PC, and go to the Update & Security section. If your PC has been selected for the rollout, you’ll see a big banner advertising Windows 11, and you’ll have the option to download it right away.
This will download and install Windows 11 in the easiest way possible, and you won’t have to set up anything after the installation. We’d recommend going this route if you can, but you have more options if this one isn’t available.
Using the Media Creation Tool
Another official way to download Windows 11 is using the tools Microsoft provides for downloading Windows 11 manually. The most versatile way to do this is using the Media Creation Tool, as you can use it to upgrade your current PC or create installation media for another PC, which you can use if you’re offline or have slow internet later. Here’s what to do:
- Go to the Windows 11 download page.
- Under Create Windows 11 Installation media, click Download Now.
- Alternatively, you can download an ISO directly from the website under Download Windows 11 Disk Image (ISO). If you do, skip to step 7.
- Note: If you want to perform a clean install using bootable USB media, select the USB flash drive you want to use and click Next. You can skip to the How to install Windows 11 section below.
You can create a bootable USB flash drive using this ISO file later, if you want. Check the Creating installation media from an ISO section below to learn how.
Creating installation media from an ISO
As we’ve mentioned above, if you download an ISO file and you just want to upgrade to Windows 11, you can actually mount the ISO in Windows and run the setup file from there. Double-click the ISO file, run the setup file, and you’re good to go. However, if you want to perform a clean install or format your PC, you may need to create a bootable USB drive. You can do that using the ISO you’ve already downloaded. Plus, this method also lets you install Windows 11 on hardware that’s not officially supported.
If you want to create a USB installation media you can use for other PCs or for a clean installation, you’ll need a program like Rufus. This can take your ISO file and flash it onto your flash drive so you can boot from it. Before you get started, make sure you don’t have any important files on the USB drive, since they’ll be deleted during the process. The USB drive will also need to have 8GB or more of capacity. Once that’s taken care of, here’s what you need to do:
