Automatic update to Windows 11 - We provide manage services to our clients which includes logging on to their computers remotely every week and updating the operating system (Settings/Update & Security). Until last Friday (12-16), Windows 11 was a choice. But two computers automatically started installing Windows 11 without any other action than clicking on Update & Security in Settings. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Hi。
    It may be that you hit the update key by mistake.
    According to the official documentation, before downloading and installing Win11, you need to ensure that the device on which you want to install Windows 11 meets the minimum system requirements. If not, it is not recommended to download and install the Windows 11 system.
    So it stands to reason that the computer cannot automatically install Win11.
    Refer to this document for details: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/ways-to-install-windows-11-e0edbbfb-cfc5-4011-868b-2ce77ac7c70e
    Hope the information is helpful.
