Windows 11 Support and Testing

Tags windows11


The Office of Information Technology recognizes that in order to keep our computing infrastructure safe, secure, and operating efficiently, the computers on the network must be regularly updated and maintain a certain level of modern operating system.  To that end, the Office of Information Technology has started testing Microsoft Windows 11 in preparation for its release (10/5/2021). 

Our testing process consists of:

- Installing the application or drivers
- Loading the application
- Performing basic functions (open files, save files, printing (if applicable)
- Closing the application

These are the results of our testing.

This page is a living document that will be updated as we continue to test and approve different applications on the operating system, including the latest builds of Windows 11 as they are released by Microsoft up to the release date.
