How to Install and Uninstall TPM Diagnostics Tool in Windows 11?

According to Microsoft, TPM (Trusted Platform Module) is a dedicated hardware chip that is mandatory to install Windows 11 on any PC. It is a physical device that is used to protect and store security keys and sensitive user data. However, there is a way to bypass TPM and install Windows 11 on a computer. By bypassing TMP 2.0, you can even install Windows 11 on a virtual machine.

For some reason, manufacturers ship motherboards with TPM off by default. That means if your purchased your PC after 2015, your computer might have shipped with the TMP module, but when you check the compatibility of Windows 11 using any tool, it may still show TMP is not available.
