After stopping the customer support for its most popular version Windows 7, Microsoft has decided to end the support for Windows 10 by the third last month of 2025.
Recently company’s updated the Windows lifecycle fact sheet in which the company stated that it will drop support for Window 10 versions like Windows 10 Home, Pro, Pro for Workstations, and Pro Education on October 14, 2025.
Windows 10 Support End Date
This clearly indicates that the US-based tech giant will not release any more updates and security fixes for Windows 10 after that date.
Though, when a company has launched Windows 10, it has announced it would be the last version of Windows, but now the company has changed its mind and confirmed that it will release Windows 11 this year.
As per the company website, it will list a new event on 24 June 2021, in which it will highlight everything that is coming “next for windows’.

As per the Microsoft official Twitter handle the event will be live at 8:30 PM IST. At the Microsoft Build 2021 event, the company’s CEO Satya Nadella confirmed the next-generation Windows update will be the most significant one of the past decade.
“Soon we will share one of the most significant updates to Windows of the past decade to unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators. I’ve been self-hosting it over the past several months, and I’m incredibly excited about the next generation of Windows,” Nadella said. Windows 11 is said to get a major UI overhaul.
So, it is clear now, Windows 10 will not get support from Microsoft, but migrating from this version to Windows 11 is not easier for the user, as people took a lot of time to upgrade from Windows 7. But Microsoft might give extra time to people migrate to the new version of the Windows operating system.
