Microsoft Store now sells digital licenses for Windows 11

Microsoft has added digital licenses for Windows 11 to the Microsoft Store. However, in addition to purchasing the Windows 11 licenses on USB drivers, you also have the choice of doing so digitally.

Microsoft didn’t provide the license for the new operating system in its shop for nearly a year. Nevertheless, we’re still appreciative that the tech behemoth eventually made it accessible, making it more available to PC consumers, particularly those who use virtual machines or who intend to create or personalize their computers.

For the various needs of users, the Store provides two OS versions. Windows 11 Home costs $139, while Windows 11 Pro, which includes Windows Information Protection and BitLocker device encryption, costs $199.99.

The versions are “intended for PCs that need a new license for Windows and fulfill the minimum system requirements for Windows 11,” Microsoft emphasizes. This implies that the digital copies sold in stores won’t function if your PC runs Windows 10 but is unable to use Windows Update to obtain the free upgrade to Windows 11.
