Windows 10 End-of-Support Dates by Version
We have been receiving a lot of emails asking us what the end-of-support dates are for the various versions of Windows 10. We’ve grabbed the following information directly from Microsoft so as to ensure its accuracy.
Microsoft continues its current version release pattern of two each calendar year. Each new version is supported for 18 months, so you can skip a version and still be using a supported version of Windows 10.
If you’re not sure what version of Windows 10 you’re using type WINVER in taskbar search and press Enter. You can also use the Windows key+ R shortcut to open a run box. In the run box type WINVER and press Enter.
Here are the current end-of-support dates from Microsoft. This information is current as of June 3, 2020.
“Some editions can defer semi-annual feature updates at Settings >Windows Update >Advanced options or via a policy that an organization’s management system may provide to the device. On devices that haven’t been configured for deferral, you’ll need to install the latest feature update to help keep your device secure and have it remain supported by Microsoft. New versions may be automatically installed prior to the end-of-service date of the current version on your device. Windows 10 Home edition does not support the deferral of feature updates and will therefore typically receive a new version of Windows 10 prior to the end-of-service date shown.
