To help all Windows 10 PC users, Microsoft has released a free app that can scan your PC’s hardware and check if your PC supports Windows mixed reality.
Windows Mixed Reality PC Check
Windows Mixed Reality PC Check is a free app from Microsoft to check if your computer’s hardware can power Windows mixed reality without any issues.
According to Microsoft, the current version of Windows Mixed Reality PC Check app is compatible with 14257 or above versions of Windows 10, which means that you can run this app even if you are still running Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Users running Windows 10 Creators Update and upcoming Fall Creators Update can also run this app.
However, Windows mixed reality feature requires Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
Before you jump to the Store to download the app, keep in mind it supports x64 type of Windows 10 only. So, if you are running 32-bit Windows 10, please upgrade from Windows 10 32-bit to Windows 10 64-bit.
Check if your PC can run Windows Mixed Reality
After installing the app from the Store, run the app, and then accept license terms to let the app scan your PC’s hardware. It checks your graphics card, graphics driver version, CPU, RAM, available disk space, USB, Windows 10 build, and Bluetooth to check if they all support Windows mixed reality.
If a hardware doesn’t support Windows mixed reality, you will see “X” sign mark next to it.
