Microsoft Will End Support for Windows 10 2004 as Early as This Year

This year Microsoft will stop releasing updates for Windows 10 version 2004 (20H1), including those related to security.

With the release of Windows 11, Microsoft is starting to end support for older systems. No, it's not about W10, at least not as such. The Redmond giant reminded that from December 14 it will no longer provide monthly updates for Windows 10 2004 version (20H1).

The announcement of the imminent end of support for the old version of the OS may seem strange. It's no secret, however, that not all Windows users are eager to install new updates. Perhaps a lot of people stopped on W10 from May 2020 (or even older), since Microsoft saw fit to publish such an announcement.

If you count yourself among those users and want to continue benefiting from new security updates, among other things, you can either download the current version of Windows 10 or upgrade to W11 right away (assuming your device meets the requirements). Microsoft will also soon share another, probably the last version of W10 (21H2). For now, it has been released for testing as part of the Windows Insider program.
