Microsoft is pushing out the PC Health Check app out to Windows 10 users, whether you want to upgrade or not

Microsoft is pushing out the new PC Health Check app out to Windows 10 users as part of KB5005463.

The somewhat controversial app is taking on an additional role beyond just checking the readiness of your PC for Windows 11.

Microsoft says the PC Health Check now also includes diagnostics to monitor device health and troubleshooting to improve performance, all from the convenience of a single dashboard.

Key features include:

Notable the app will automatically install updates when you open it, usually followed by a prompt to restart your PC, which may be an annoyance for some users.

You can, fortunately, uninstall it by going to  Apps > Apps & Features > App list (Windows PC Health Check) > Uninstall.

Microsoft is pushing the app out automatically to Windows 10 but not 11 users. If you want it now you can download KB5005463 from the update catalogue here.
