This post will show you how to install or uninstall TPM Diagnostic Tool in Windows 11, a new app for pulling information about Trusted Platform Module. Trusted Platform Module is a dedicated hardware chip that Microsoft now requires to run Windows 11. It is a physical device for protecting and storing security keys and sensitive user data.
On devices without a discreet TPM chip, Trusted Platform Module works using security mechanisms built into a CPU. For some reason, manufacturers ship motherboards with TPM off by default. If you plan to upgrade your PC, make sure you know how to enable TPM and SecureBoot before installing Windows 11.
Windows 11 now comes with a new app called TPM Diagnostic Tool for pulling information about TPM. Here is how to enable Trusted Platform Module Diagnostic Tool in Windows 11.
