So, a while back when Windows 11 launched, everyone wanted to try it. But, it wasn’t easy to run the new OS on your machine. It required TPM 2.0 that most PCs or Laptops didn’t come with, and what did users do? Well, people started to exploit the OS and made it so it can be installed on almost any device regardless of whether meets the minimum system requirements.
Now, Microsoft has come up with a way, Windows 11 when installed on a device that doesn’t meet the minimum requirements, the Windows will show watermarks to constantly remind the user.
Windows 11 Watermarks
Microsoft was reportedly testing this feature in the earlier versions of the next patch build, and it seems like this one will make it to the final release. This time for those users that use Windows 11 on systems that have bypassed its minimum system requirements there is a little gift. On the bottom right of your display, it will display a watermark that says; “System requirements not met. Go to Settings to learn more”. This will be just like the Windows not activated sign, however, it will overlay everything instead of just sitting on the desktop.
The games, the applications, everything will be showing the watermark on the bottom right which will surely bug some users. This isn’t a very lethal way to stop people from using Windows 11 on unsupported systems, but I don’t think Microsoft is going to stop here.
Let’s see what they do in the future instead of just a Windows 11 Watermark. What do you think of this? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
