Microsoft will announce the next version of Windows soon on June 24, but previously the company announced that it will end support for Windows 10 on October 14, 2025.
As Thurrott pointed out, this is the first time the company has given an end date for the entire operating system. Windows 10 was originally launched in 2015, so it has a 10 year old hot streak and it goes with its name too.
What does it mean for you if Microsoft ends support for Windows 10?
First of all, you will no longer receive software updates and no new features will be added to the operating system. The company may have an extended support window that provides bug fixes and patches so you can keep your system up and running with peace of mind.
While home users may prefer to upgrade to the new version of Windows within a few years of its release. Organizations may not be able to make this change quickly because they often use multiple custom software that is tailored to one specific feature OS and may not be updated once the next version of Windows is released.
So Windows 10 isn’t going to die out anytime soon, but at least we know when Microsoft will start pushing users to the latest version of its operating system.
