Major tech companies generally end support only when newer versions are launched. This keeps them from delivering feature-rich services and also protects the consumers from cyber threats

Tech giant Microsoft has recently made an announcement that it will be supporting Windows 10 at least till 2025. Furthermore, the company added that it would not be adding any new features to the OS. Windows 10 version 20H2 Pro and Home edition will no longer receive updates and be supported by Microsoft from May 10, 2022. This gives the users another four months to upgrade to a newer version. We must understand here that companies usually stop providing updates only when the product is getting closer to the end of support.

Major tech companies generally end support only when newer versions are launched. This keeps them from delivering feature-rich services and protects consumers from cyber threats and newly discovered weak links. As of now, the Windows 10, version 21H2, is available for select users who are using the Windows 10, 2004, or above versions. Once the update is complete, users will experience faster installation because updates will now install like a monthly update. Reports suggest that the newer version will now support WiFi 6. PowerToys version 0.53.1 was also rolled out recently with new features. PowerToys is a bunch of utilities that allow users to fine-tune their Windows for better productivity.
