But from 14 October 2025, there will be no new updates or security fixes for either the Home or Pro versions. And Microsoft says its successor will represent one of the “most significant updates” to the OS in the past decade.

Microsoft says it will stop supporting Windows 10 in 2025, as it prepares to unveil a major revamp of its Windows operating system later this month. When Windows 10 was launched, Microsoft said it was intended to be the final version of the operating system. Its predecessor, Windows 7, was retired in 2020, although businesses could pay Microsoft to continue receiving updates for Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Enterprise.

At the time, chief executive Satya Nadella said it marked a “new era” for personal computing. Developer evangelist and Microsoft employee Jerry Nixon went further, describing it as “the last version of Windows”. And Mr Nadella added he was particularly “excited” by features such as digital personal assistant Cortana, which was intended to compete with Apple’s Siri.

But Cortana never really took off and in April this year it was retired on mobile, focusing instead on productivity help in Windows 10, Outlook and Teams. Also: Mr Nadella and chief product officer Panos Panay will launch the new OS at a virtual event on 24 June, with Microsoft now facing stiff competition not just from Apple but also from Google.
