How to enable or disable Hyper-V in Windows 11

Windows has support for the Hyper-V virtualization platform for creating and using virtual machines.

 

By default, this feature is only available in the Pro and Enterprise editions, but it can also be installed on Windows 11 Home.

Virtualization support is required for virtual machines to run. A quick way to check is to open Task Manager and go to the “Performance” tab and select “CPU”.

If you see “Virtualization” under “Enabled”, all is well. Otherwise, you will need to enable virtualization in BIOS/UEFI

 

How to install Hyper-V:

  • Right-click on Start, select Run, type (appwiz.cpl) and press Enter.
  • In the window that opens, click “Activate or deactivate Windows features”.
  • In the list of components, tick Hyper-V.
  • Press “OK” and wait for installation to complete.
