Windows 10: Everything you Need to Know

We said goodbye to Windows 7 and now comes the question on everyone’s mind: How long until Microsoft gets rid of Windows 10?

Don’t fret, you still have time. Since releasing in July 2015, Windows 10’s extended support is expected to end in 2025 with updates twice a year. For every version of OS, Microsoft offers a minimum of 10 years of support (5 of Mainstream Support and 5 of Extended Support) providing security and program updates.

While you may be hesitant to update and switch over to Windows 10 due to issues with the earlier versions, Microsoft has implemented several changes ensuring all updates are ready for the market including more testing and slower rollouts. 

If you haven’t updated already, we strongly recommend upgrading as soon as possible. It’s important to keep your data secure, especially in a world where cybercrime continues to increase. Check out our blog post “Say Goodbye to Windows 7” for more information on how to upgrade to Windows 10.  

Now it’s time to verse yourself with all the new features Windows 10 provides. We’ve outlined some of the best features that the newest update of Windows 10 has to offer.
