    Nothing will say 'Windows 11'. All such utilities, including ShowKeyPlus, read this information from the registry in:
    Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

    And MS in their infinite wisdom have written 'Windows 10...' for the ProductName value there.
    I think that is probably for all of the Windows 10 programs that check that registry entry and won't run if they find anything other than Windows 10.

    Strange that they did not do due diligence on the registry.. it's a pretty simple text change AFAIK...

    I had an issue at GitHub requesting I fix the old CLI version of ShowKeyPlus due to this ..

    TweakNT was a utility to convert Longhorn installations without having to reinstall OS, this thing is flagged as a virus everywhere.
