Microsoft will end support for Windows 10 in 2025

20th June 2021

Microsoft has confirmed that it will end support for Windows 10 in 2025, which could be another sign that Windows 11 is on its way.

In a notice on its website, Microsoft has officially stated that the end of support date for Windows 10 Home and Pro is October 14, 2025. This means that, from this date, Microsoft will not be providing technical support, software updates or security updates or fixes for Windows 10.

While the notice suggests that this end of life date applies to Windows 10 Home and Pro, a clarification on the page states that it will also apply to Windows 10 Pro Education and Pro for Workstations too.

This confirmation from Microsoft could suggest that Windows 11 will be rolled out soon.

Although Windows 11 is expected imminently, Microsoft continues to roll out updates for Windows 10. In April, Microsoft introduced a new Windows 10 taskbar which brought a new variety of ways to personalise users devices. The taskbar allows users to navigate through personalised information, collated from news, weather, and stock reports. The company opted to introduce it to customers over several weeks in a phased approach.
