This tutorial will show you how to scan a QR code on a Windows 11 PC.
A QR code is a type of matrix barcode that can be used to share URL links of sites. To scan this code, you can use a QR scanner app on your phone, or some camera apps.
The Camera app included in Windows 11 will allow you to scan a QR code with your PC's camera (webcam).
Starting with Windows 11 build 26052 (Canary and Dev), You can now use the Camera app to join a Wi-Fi network. Just scan a QR code with Wi-Fi details and a link will be provided that will open Settings to quickly get the new Wi-Fi profile added and connected. As a reminder, starting with Build 25977 in the Canary Channel you can create your own QR code for Wi-Fi and share it with others. This also works for mobile hotspots too.
EXAMPLE: QR code for ElevenForum.com URL
Open the Camera app.
Select Barcode mode on the right side of the Camera app. (see screenshot below)
Hold the QR code in front of your PC camera until it automatically scans the QR code.
You can now click/tap on the URL link at the bottom to open the URL in your default web browser.
