    Is there an official Windows 10 end of life after Windows 11


    I am aware that each sub-release has a 18 months cycle. However, windows 11 is coming soon and none of the PC I own is new enough to use it. This mean at some point, I will need to replace the PC or replace them with a different OS. Is there an official date, I seemed to recall hearing Oct 2025.

    October 2025 has been announced as the end of support for Win10. After that and like earlier versions of Windows it will not die, just won't have any updated security when online or sharing files from other computers.

    It looks like Windows 10 will continue to have twice a year updates for another four years. Although, this may be confined to fixes as opposed to new feature development.

    Microsoft will continue to support at least one Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel until October 14, 2025.
    Windows 10 Home and Pro follows the Modern Lifecycle Policy.
