Successful Upgrade from Win10 to Win11 on Dell XPS Laptop with 8th Gen CPU

Copper Contributor

I was able to successfully upgrade my Dell XPS 13 9360 laptop from Win10 Pro to Win11 Pro with a fresh, clean install (now on Ver 23H2). This is a 5.5 year-old laptop with 8 GB of RAM, a i5-8250U CPU and a 1 TB Adlink NVMe. Win11 runs fine with no problems including my whole MS Office Suite, maybe even a bit zippier than Win10. The laptop also boots in 17 seconds to the lock screen. Overall, very pleased with Win11. Only hack I employed was the registry modification to remove the "More Options" from the right-click menus so that all the options are on one single menu (like in Win10).

The CPU is compatible with Windows 11. Does the computer has TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot?
