Windows 10 21H1: End of support from December

Microsoft reminded customers that it will stop supporting all versions of Windows 10 version 21H1 (end of support – EOS) in three months, namely on December 13, 2022.

According to the company, Windows 10 21H1 (May 2021 Update) will no longer receive security updates.

This means that customers who are still using them should upgrade to the latest version as soon as possible to avoid potential attacks that could exploit vulnerabilities that will no longer be patched.

How find operating system info in Windows 10

To find out which version of Windows your device is running, press the Windows logo key  key + R, type winver in the Open box, and then select OK.

Here’s how to learn more:

  1. Select the Start  button > Settings  > System  > About .
  2. Under Device specifications > System type, see if you’re running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows.
  3. Under Windows specifications, check which edition and version of Windows your device is running.

Microsoft hasn’t officially announced anything, but as the end of support approaches, it’s likely to start pushing feature updates via Windows Update to consumer devices and non-managed business devices still running Windows 10 21H1.

This approach has been used for all versions of Windows in recent years to ensure that devices that reach EOS still receive important security updates.
