One of the biggest questions related to the Steam Deck is Windows compatibility. Valve has made it clear that Windows 10 will work, but Windows 11 was a question mark. However, the company is working with AMD to make sure the device will work with Windows 11.
Valve’s Steam Deck will ship with a custom version of Linux called SteamOS, but the device is just a computer at its core. That means it’ll run all sorts of different operating systems, including Windows.
We knew Windows 10 wouldn’t be an issue for the device, but with Windows 11 right around the corner, Microsoft fans and gamers were curious whether the latest version of the OS would work.
