Microsoft Is Set To Stop the Sale of Windows 10 in the Coming Week
Starting next week, Microsoft will stop the sale of windows 10 Home and Pro to customers, the company reportedly wrote on the products page.
“January 31, 2023, will be the last day this Windows 10 download is offered for sale,” Microsoft stated online. “Windows 10 will remain supported with security updates that help protect your PC from viruses, spyware, and other malware until October 14, 2025.”
What This Means for Third-Party Retailers
And while Microsoft will no longer sell windows 10 license keys and downloads, it is however unclear as to whether people will be able to buy windows 10 from other retailers after the stipulated January cutoff.
Microsoft Back in June 2021 Announced the End of Support for Windows 10 In 2025
Microsoft back in June 2021 announced that it would be putting an end to its support for Windows 10 in 2025 which is a decade after the operating system was launched back in 2015. And then, just after a gradual and slow rollout beginning in 2021, the tech company fully deployed windows 11 to everyone owning a compatible device in May 2022. Microsoft then said that users of Windows 10 with compatible computer systems could upgrade to the latest operating system for free if they wish to at the time.
