Fix 8: Use Windows 11 Media Creation Tool
Microsoft announced Tuesday that Windows 10 version 1809 will include several improvements designed to make upgrading easier. One of those changes includes the ability to upgrade directly to Windows 11 without having to use a third party tool like Microsoft’s Windows 10 Media Creation Tool. However, there are some downsides to skipping the media creation tool.
The good news is that the update will allow you to skip the media creation tool entirely. You’ll still be able to perform a clean install of Windows 11, but you won’t receive any additional features. In addition, the update will require you to re-download the entire operating system.
If you do decide to go ahead and upgrade, here’s how to do it. Then select “Go Back.” Next, scroll down to find the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool and tap Disable. Finally, restart your computer and follow the prompts to complete the upgrade.
Back up your computer before updating to Windows 11.
To make sure you don’t lose important data during an update, it’s recommended to back up your system before installing new software. If you’re running Windows 10, Microsoft offers built-in backup tools. You can use those to quickly and easily save copies of your documents, photos, music, videos, and other files.
This creates a copy of everything on your hard disk, including hidden folders like Desktop, Documents, Pictures, Music, Videos, etc. In addition, it saves settings, passwords, and Internet Explorer favorites.
For example, you can back up just your pictures, or even individual albums.
You can also manually back up your files. Here are some tips:
1. Create a folder called “Backup” somewhere on your hard drive.
2. Copy all of your important files there.
3. Make another folder named “Restore.”
