As of this writing, Amazon WorkSpaces default bundles supports Windows 10 desktop experience powered by Windows Server 2016 or Windows Server 2019.

If your organization is eligible to bring its own Windows Desktop licenses (BYOL), you can run the Windows 10 Enterprise operating system on your Amazon WorkSpaces. You will need to meet requirements for BYOL to run in this mode. The only Windows versions supported for BYOL are specific version of Windows 10 listed here.

Windows 11 versions are not supported for BYOL at this time. There are currently no published timeline for the support of Windows 11 Amazon WorkSpaces. AWS is constantly adding new capabilities so you can leverage the latest technologies and also looking at specific customer product feature enhancement requests.

Could you share what are the specific use cases and requirements you have for Amazon WorkSpaces with Windows 11? I would encourage you to contact your AWS representative for your organization for more specific discussions around your business needs for the new version. Thanks
