Support For Original Version of Windows 10 is Ending Soon

2017 02 01 08h16 11

Microsoft is going to end support for the original release version of Windows 10 on May 9th. The move is a part of Microsoft’s shift to its Windows as a service model. It was to be done earlier on March 26. However, Microsoft pushed back the date and now the support for the original version of Windows 10 will end on May 9.

If you are running Windows 10 version 1507 then from May 9 you will no longer receive security and quality updates. To avoid this from happening you should update to the latest version of Windows 10. While you can still continue using Windows 10 version 1507, but it will make your device susceptible to viruses due to lack of security updates.

Microsoft explained its decision to end support by saying:

“With Windows 10, we introduced a new model whereby we release feature updates a few times a year, rather than holding back features for a new release every 2-3 years as in the past. In doing so, it’s important that our customers stay current by installing feature updates as they are released.”

Microsoft recommends you updates your Windows 10 by visiting the Software Download Page of Microsoft and Clicking on ‘Update now’. This will download the Update Assistant which will help you grab the latest Creators Update release. You can check which version of Windows you are running by typing “winver” into your taskbar search to open the About Windows box. If it shows the current version as 10.0, you’ll want to update.
