Windows 10 Support Ends October 2025: Start Planning Now

Windows 10 End of Life - October 2025
Windows 10 End of Life - October 2025

Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 10 in October 2025. This means no more updates or security fixes. If you’re still using Windows 10, it’s time to think about upgrading to a newer operating system.

Why Upgrade?

Using an old operating system is risky because it won’t get security updates. This makes your computer more vulnerable to viruses and hackers. For businesses, this can lead to data breaches, lost customer trust, and serious security issues. For those following Cyber Essentials compliance, this change is significant; you can read more about it here.

What You Should Do

  1. Check Your Hardware: See if your current computers can run newer operating systems like Windows 11. Older computers might need to be replaced.

  2. Plan Your Budget: Set aside money for new equipment and software. Also, consider the cost of training staff and any downtime during the switch.

  3. Improve Security: Use this upgrade to review and boost your cyber security. Make sure your new system is protected against the latest threats.

  4. Talk to IT Experts: Get advice from IT professionals at Excellence IT to make the upgrade smooth! We can help with planning, backing up data, and setting up security on the new system.
