Microsoft to end support for Windows 10 in 2025

With a new version of Windows scheduled for this year, Microsoft has announced that support for Windows 10 will end on 14 October 2025.

The company’s updated Windows lifecycle fact sheet states that the company will drop support for Windows 10 Home, Pro, Pro for Workstations, and Pro Education on October 14, 2025. This means that the US-based tech giant will not release any more updates and security fixes after that date.

When Microsoft launched Windows 10, it said that this would be the last version of Windows. But, the company’s recent teaser confirmed that it will launch Windows 11 by the end of this month. It has listed a new event on its website, which will take place on June 24. At the event, the company will highlight everything that is coming ‘next for Windows.’

The event will kick off at 8:30 pm IST. Microsoft confirmed this news via its official Twitter handle. Windows 11 is expected to get a major UI overhaul. As per The Verge, Microsoft has been working on something codenamed ‘Sun Valley', which the company has referred to as a “sweeping visual rejuvenation of Windows.” There will be many other changes, including some significant Windows Store ones.
