The PC Health Check tool was previously prepared by Microsoft specifically for users who are preparing to upgrade the Windows 11 system. The tool can check whether the hardware is compatible and so on.
Of course, if users are not going to upgrade to Windows 11, then naturally they do not need to use this tool, but Microsoft has recently begun to force the installation of this software.
Microsoft has not issued an announcement explaining why this software is being promoted to all consumers, but this may cause some trouble for users who do not need it.
If PC Health Check tool suddenly appears on the user’s desktop, it means that it has been automatically installed. If the user does not need it, it can be uninstalled manually.
Key features include:
- Windows 11 eligibility: Provides a comprehensive eligibility check based on the minimum system requirements for Windows 11.
- Backup and sync: Sign in or create a Microsoft account to sync device preferences across devices and set up Microsoft OneDrive to protect your files.
- Windows Update: Keep your device secure by always running the latest version of Windows 10.
- Battery capacity: View the battery capacity relative to the original for devices that use a single or multiple batteries.
- Storage capacity: View the storage usage for the main drive that contains files, apps, and Windows.
- Startup time: Manage startup programs to improve startup time.
- Tips on PC health: Provides additional tips to improve overall PC health and performance.
Originally, this tool was only used to help users check whether the device meets the requirements of Windows 11, but it can be seen from the above that the software has multiple functions.
Is it a pity that Microsoft feels that it is a pity that no one uses such rich software? Obviously not, the purpose of Microsoft may still be to promote the new system.
If the PC Health Check tool supported by the device displays a banner at the top to remind users to upgrade to Windows 11, clicking on the banner will jump to the system update interface.
If the user does not like this unsolicited software, you can uninstall it in the Apps & Features, but it may be reinstalled later.
This update will not be pushed to Windows 11 users. This update is pushed to users as KB5005463. If you see an update with this number in the system update, it corresponds to the computer health check tool.
