I updated to Windows 11 from windows 10, but on the Windows Update section in the Settings app I still get the "Upgrade to Windows 11" prompt. What can I do?

EDIT (May 06 2022): Since I had other problems with my Windows installation, I finally decided to reset my PC; since it didn't work, I backed-up my data and fresh installed from ISO/USB.

  • That is kinda funny. It says "Pending download" so just let it download (with the Download Now button) then when it is finished downloading and installing. restart your pc.

    Get WhyNotWin11 from GitHub and run it to verify all is well with your computer. Then make the Windows 11 ISO on a USB Key from: microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows11 and run Setup on the USB key.

  • @develc - You don't need a USB key. You can mount the ISO and run Setup.exe from the mounted ISO. However, I have no idea why the suggestion to run the Windows 11 setup has been made, it's likely not even applicable to your situation. My suggestion would be to perform a Windows Update reset to clear the cache.
