5 Minute Help Desk Windows 10 End of Life

Microsoft has announced: Windows 10 will reach end of support on October 14, 2025. The current version, 22H2, will be the final version of Windows 10, and all editions will remain in support with monthly security update releases through that date. Existing LTSC releases will continue to receive updates beyond that date based on their specific lifecycles.

This means that, practically, business owners should budget for replacing any computer running Windows 10 at their earliest convenience.

Why you should be concerned?

Security, security, security – oh and compatibility!
Once Microsoft stops supporting Windows 10, it means it no longer releases patches and upgrades, which can leave your business exposed to security issues. It also means that third-party software vendors will stop supporting the operating system.

What’s Next?

The simple answer is to buy a new computer with Windows 11 installed.

Can’t I buy a copy of Windows 11?

Yes and No! Some Windows 10 computers will support Windows 11, but many won’t. Even if you upgrade your existing computer to Windows 11, it may slow the older computer down and cost you productivity.

Can I wait until the last minute?

Sure, it may be a little early to jump ship at this time, but putting a budget in place and planning ahead can only help.
