Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 10 in 2025

According to the Windows 10 Home and Pro lifecycle page, Microsoft will officially retire Windows 10 on 14th October 2025.

The banner at the top of the page says: “Microsoft will continue to support at least one Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel until October 14th 2025.”

When end-of-life happens, the operating system will no longer receive security or quality updates, although Microsoft may decide to extend the deadline slightly at some point in the future, this is what occurred with Windows 7.
