    When will Microsoft end support for Windows 10?

    My home-built computer is over 6 years old, upgraded with an SSD and larger hard drives for storage.  It works just fine for most of what I want, but I need an upgraded computer.

    The issue is that I am getting old and I built this so long ago I have forgotten a lot, and all the hardware (MOBO, processors, memory etc) have changed.  Help is hard to find.

    But, if pushed, I will build a new box.  But when MUST I build a new box?

    When will Windows 10 expire?

      When will Microsoft end support for Windows 10?

      October 14th, 2025:

      Microsoft will continue to support at least one Windows 10 release until October 14, 2025.

      Support Dates

      Windows 10 Home and Pro

      Retirement Date Oct 14, 2025

      Windows 10 Home and Pro – Microsoft Lifecycle

      Windows 11 Pro version 22H2 build 22621.898 + Microsoft 365/Edge

      Which build?

        Where am I?

        Windows 11 Pro version 22H2 build 22621.898 + Microsoft 365/Edge

        Which build?

        If you actually take a look at the link @b posted, you’d see there is no specific build related to that date. The chart simply shows the Retirement Date for Win10 Home & Pro as 2025-10-14T22:59:59.999-08:00.

        BTW, they only issue expiration dates for “new versionsnot specific builds, and their standard EoS (end of support) for each “new version” is 18 months.

        So, calculating backward using their 18 month EoS, the “new version” that’ll expire by Oct 14 2025 won’t actually be released until sometime after Apr 13, 2024 and, since they changed their release cycle for “new versions” to the 2nd half of each year, it’ll probably happen sometime in the Sep – Nov 2024 time frame.

        Also, unless they completely change the version naming scheme they’ve been using, it’ll likely be Windows 10 version 24H2 (build 19047.???)

          it’ll likely be Windows 10 version 24H2 (build 19046.???)

          Won’t 24H2 be 19047??

          21H2 is 19044
          22H2 will be 19045?
          23H2 will be 19046?
          24H2 will be 19047?

            You’re right, my bad for not getting that part right.

            It’s been corrected.
