    What options do I have for continuing to use versions of Windows 10 that reach End of Support on October 14, 2025?

    You may continue to use Windows 10 after support ends; however, it will no longer receive quality updates, new or updated features, security updates, or technical support. We recommend that customers upgrade or transition to a new Windows 11 PC for the best, most secure computing experience.

    If you are an individual consumer or an organization who elects to continue using Windows 10 after support ends on October 14, 2025, you will have the option of enrolling your PC in the paid Extended Security Updates (ESU) program. The ESU program enables PCs to continue to receive Critical and Important security updates (as defined by the Microsoft Security Response Center) through an annual subscription service after support ends. More details including pricing will be provided at a later date.

    The ESU program provides individual consumers and organizations of all sizes with the option to extend the use of Windows 10 PCs past the end of support date in a more secure manner.

    Good to know this will be an option for individuals.

    I agree but depends on the subscription fee.

    The last time I was involved in an ESU program subscription, it was for a company.
    It cost us several tens of thousands of Pounds a year.

    Maybe so, but my Core 2 Quad machine is running so well, it would be a pity not to keep using it.

    Microsoft wants to rid itself of unremunerative domestic users.
