Navigating the End of Windows 10 Support: How Screenworks Can Help

As the end-of-life date for Windows 10 approaches on October 14, 2025, many users are contemplating their next steps. This marks a significant shift, as post that date, Windows 10 will no longer receive critical security updates or technical support from Microsoft. In this blog post, we’ll explore what this means for you and how Screenworks can assist in transitioning smoothly to Windows 11 or other solutions that fit your needs.

What Does the End of Windows 10 Support Mean?

Firstly, it’s important to clarify that your Windows 10 PC will not stop functioning after October 14, 2025. However, the discontinuation of security updates means that using Windows 10 beyond this date could expose your system to security vulnerabilities and risks. Additionally, Microsoft will not offer technical support for any issues on Windows 10, making it potentially difficult to maintain your system’s stability and security.

Options for Windows Users

If you’re wondering about your next steps, here’s what you can do:

  1. Check Compatibility: Navigate to Settings > Privacy and Security > Windows Update on your PC. This section provides information on whether your system meets the minimum requirements for Windows 11.
  2. Upgrade to Windows 11: If your PC is eligible, you might see an option to upgrade to Windows 11 for free through Windows Update.
  3. Consider New Hardware: If your current PC does not support Windows 11, or if you’re simply ready for an upgrade, consider purchasing a new PC that supports the latest OS.
