If you want to be able to use Windows 11 on your PC, you will need to meet certain hardware requirements. This isn’t to say if you don’t meet those requirements you can’t run Windows 11, but there is a chance that it might not necessarily be the best experience, especially if you have a computer with dated hardware.

Now it seems that Microsoft is going one step further in reminding users that their PCs don’t support Windows 11. As noted by ArsTechnica, Microsoft is now including a watermark at the bottom right corner of the screen on computers where Windows 11 isn’t officially supported.

This watermark basically reminds users that they’re running Windows 11 on an unsupported device. However, the watermark is quite small and probably won’t be too disruptive to your experience, but the fact that it’s there might be quite annoying and irksome for some users who just want to use their PCs.

Also, keep in mind that the watermarks don’t actually restrict your use of Windows or apps in any way, it just serves as a reminder, so if you think you can ignore it, then this is a non-issue, but for those who care, it has been suggested that it can be removed via registry edits, but unless you know what you’re doing, making registry edits isn’t something we’d recommend.
