3Shape compatibility with Windows 11 - FAQ
Our software development team is testing the compatibility of our systems (TRIOS, Dental Desktop, Ortho System and Dental System) with the new Microsoft Windows 11. Find more information here.
What is 3Shape's recommendation on upgrading?
Because we are still assessing Windows 11 compatibility with our solutions, we recommend that you wait with upgrading to Windows 11 until we have completed testing. By holding off, we can ensure the stability of your systems. Microsoft will continue to support Windows 10 until at least 2025.
I have already updated to Windows 11: what should I do now?
After you have installed the Windows 11 upgrade, there is a 10-day period where you can move back to Windows 10 while keeping files and data that you brought along with you.
After the 10 days, you will need to back up your data and do a “clean install” to move back to Windows 10.
