      It’s highly unlikely that you can install Windows 11 on your old hardware that now runs Windows 7.

      That makes for a better question: is it worth it to buy another PC/laptop? That’s not something we can answer for you.

      If you would’ve been using some newer version I might have not recommended you. Since you are using windows 7 you should definitely go for it.

      I upgraded from Windows 10 to 11 in January or early February. I am happy and have adapted to it well. I must confess that there will be a learning curve to get used to the new look/interface. For now, unless you buy a new computer, I don’t think the upgrade to Windows 11 from Windows 7 is all that important if the older version is working for you without trouble. Windows 7 should be supported for a few more years by Microsoft.

        Actually Windows 7 is no longer supported in general

        Some corporations may have purchased extended support, but as far as any updates it is EOL. Now, having said that, the more important thing is if you want to keep using Windows 7, find software that is still supported, such as using MS Edge for web browsing, and Microsoft is still updating the MS Security on Win 7. Also, take care and don’t click on any and all links from emails, web sites, etc. (which is good advice anyhow).
