Microsoft has issued a reminder that as of today, May 10, 2022, version 20H2 of the Windows 10 operating system will no longer be supported. Its release took place in September 2020, although it was called the “October” update.
In particular, the new version of the operating system included some important features, including the return of the Start menu, a redesigned taskbar, an improved update system and an improved user interface for use with tablets. Equally important, it was the first version of the Microsoft operating system to receive the Chromium-powered Edge browser.
The end of operating system maintenance means that all users requesting support will be encouraged to update to a new version, and most importantly, they will no longer receive security updates.
Version maintenance stops:
- Windows 10 Home version 20H2;
- Windows 10 Pro version 20H2;
- Windows 10 Pro Education Release 20H2;
- Windows 10 Pro for workstations version 20H2.
Importantly, Windows 10 Version 20H2 Enterprise, Education and IoT Enterprise will be supported until May 9, 2023.
When the user’s operating system version has reached end-of-life, it can be upgraded manually. At the same time, Microsoft announced back in January that it would forcibly update 20H2 to 21H2, so it is very likely that the system version has changed by itself.
