Microsoft’s Windows 10 licenses are no longer on sale

Posted in:

As we had earlier reported, yesterday marked the last day Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro licenses were up for sale, including license keys. Now, when you head to the product pages for both editions, you’ll be redirected to the Windows 11 product page.

Microsoft has officially initiated its gradual process of phasing out the Windows 10 OS ahead of its October 14, 2025, end-of-support date. This is the end of an era marking 8 years since Microsoft launched the OS back in 2015. Customers that are still using the OS will continue receiving security updates till it is completely phased out.

The company now recommends that users on the OS should consider upgrading to Windows 11 if their devices meet the minimum system requirements, if not they should consider getting new devices that do. However, users can still buy Windows 10 licenses from authorized third-party retailers.

Will you upgrade to Windows 11? Share your thoughts with us in the comment section.
