I suspect there should be no issue on a tablet currently running Windows 10. It would help to know the make/model of the tablet. It is a little early for anyone to definitively answer your question. I imagine Windows 11 is in beta testing but the final product hasn't been officially released yet. Microsoft will be providing a link to a tool to evaluate compatibility online, but not yet.

I'm going with no.

Why? No specific tablet was noted but the majority of the Windows tablets from Windows 7 to 10 were 99% cheap things with low amounts of RAM and storage which meant that for 99% of those an UPGRADE INSTALL was not possible as the storage was usually a tiny 8GB to about 16GB which wasn't enough to perform an upgrade.

Maybe one can do a clean install but then "GOOD LUCK" on finding Windows drivers for your choice of Windows.

-> My advice is if it runs Windows 10, leave it alone!

Re: Windows 11 on tablet

It seems unlikely your (unknown to us) tablet has the necessary hardware support.
In the settings app go to Update & Security>Windows security>Device security and see what it says about Standard hardware security. If it says it's not supported, it most likely won't run Windows 11. Luckily Windows 10 is supported for more than 4 years from now. And it will still run (although without additional security updates) for years after that.

Upgrade to Windows 11

https://www.cnet.com/tech/computing/windows-11-compatibility-try-whynotwin11-if-the-pc-health-check-app-doesnt-work/ tells where to download the program whynotwin11.exe . It tests all hardware requirements except the WDDM-level offered by the video card driver. But my guess is that at least one of the other checks will give red.

Please tell what tablet you have and what the program said.
