Microsoft is still working on a feature to notify Windows 11 users installing the operating system on unsupported devices. A few days ago, a new Windows 11 test build 22000.588 became available for Windows Insiders, which, alongside fixes and improvements, introduced a watermark indicating that you are using the operating system on an unsupported device.
Watermark with text “System requirements not met. For more information, see “Settings” (System requirements not met. For more information, see Settings) appears on the desktop when the user has installed Windows 11 on a device that does not meet the system requirements. This feature appeared in early preview builds of the software platform a few weeks ago, but is now part of the beta and release preview builds. This could mean that Microsoft is preparing to integrate the feature into stable versions of the operating system.
What is curious is that the watermark does not affect the performance of the system and does not limit the available functions. It’s also worth noting that Microsoft didn’t mention the appearance of the watermark in the description of the new build. When exactly it can appear in stable versions of the software platform is still unknown. Obviously, this will happen after testing is complete with a limited number of users registered in the Windows Insider Program.
