Windows 10 will reach end-of-life on October 14, 2025. Hence, all Microsoft users should upgrade to Windows 11.

Microsoft has reiterated its warning for its users saying that Windows 10 will no longer be supported after October 14, 2025.

Windows 10 enjoys the confidence of around 70% of Windows users. But the company stuck to its plan to phase it out. This is not the first time Microsoft has urged its users to upgrade to Windows 11 as it earlier sent full-screen reminders. The company now has an official webpage about it.

The new 'End of support' page explains that after October 2025, Windows 10 will not receive any security or technical updates. This can leave users' computers vulnerable to security risks, it said. Microsoft strongly recommends upgrading to Windows 11 if your PC can handle it.

The webpage also offers detailed information about Windows 11's features and their comparison with Windows 10. The article also specifies how to shop for a new laptop that can run Windows 11. It also explains how to back up your data using OneDrive so that you do not lose your data during the transition.

If your current device lacks specifications to upgrade to Windows 11, you should consider buying a new one, such as their next-gen Copilot+ PCs, Microsoft suggests, making it clear that upgrading to Windows 11 is essential for maintaining security and getting the latest features.
