Microsoft has announced they plan to end support for Windows 10 in October 2025, including Home, Pro, Pro Education and Pro for Workstations versions.

Microsoft has announced Windows 10 will go end of life in October 2025 – 10 years after its July 2015 release date. The announcement comes ahead of a rumoured unveiling of a new Windows operating system towards the end of June. More than 1.3 billion devices are running Windows 10 across the globe, and Microsoft claim it has been their most popular operating system ever. Despite it’s popularity, Windows 10 is following in the footsteps of one of it’s predecessors, Windows 7, which had support terminated in early 2020. This early announcement gives users plenty of notice to prepare their migration to the next Windows version. According to Microsoft’s lifecycle policies, other products set to also have support terminated in 2025 include but are not limited to:

  • Dynamics CRM 2015
  • Dynamics NAV 2015
  • Dynamics GP 2015
  • Exchange Server 2016 and 2019
  • Office 2016 and 2019

Why is it important to follow end of support dates?

When products reach end of life, Microsoft no longer provide technical support, software updates or security updates or fixes. This leaves anyone running these products or platforms after their end dates with a realm of security risks and user issues. The products will rapidly become dated and lack robust or modern security features. Want support in maintaining and upgrading your IT systems and cloud services?
