Technology Requirements

Hardware minimum requirements for Teams on a Windows PC

Open Window Online uses the Microsoft Teams platform along with other Microsoft software (OneNote, Word, etc.). Given the amount of work students will be doing on their machine and knowing that they will need to run Teams simultaneously with other software, we require a tablet computer (any brand) with a stylus that runs Windows 10 or higher

Computer and processor Minimum 1.1 GHz or faster, 2 core 
Note: For Intel processors, the maximum speed achieved using Intel Turbo Boost Technology (Max Turbo Frequency) must be considered 
Memory 4.0 GB RAM (Teams requires a dedicated 4 GB of RAM over and above any other system requirements) 
Hard disk 3.0 GB of available disk space 
Display 1024 x 768 screen resolution 
Graphic hardware Windows OS: Graphics hardware acceleration requires DirectX 9 or later, with WDDM 2.0 or higher for Windows 10 (or WDDM 1.3 or higher for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update) 
Operating system Windows 11, Windows 10 (excluding Windows 10 LTSC), Windows 10 on ARM, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2. Note: We recommend using the latest Windows version and security patches available. 
.NET version Requires .NET 4.5 CLR or later 
Video USB 2.0 video camera 
Devices Standard laptop camera, microphone, and speakers 
Video calls and meetings
  • Requires 2-core processor. For higher video/screen share resolution and frame rate, a 4-core processor or better is recommended. 
  • Background video effects require Windows 10 or a processor with AVX2 instruction set. 
  • See Hardware decoder and encoder driver recommendations for a list of unsupported decoders and encoders. 
  • Joining a meeting using proximity detection in a Microsoft Teams Room requires Bluetooth LE, which requires Bluetooth to be enabled on the client device, and for Windows clients it also requires the 64-bit Teams client. This feature is not available on 32-bit Teams clients. 
Open Window Online provides a challenging academic curriculum blended with nurturing support from teachers that prepares students for long-term success.
