Windows 10 21H2 End of Support
Roughly every 6-12 months Microsoft releases a “feature” update to Windows 10 and 11. This, as the name implies, includes some new features as well as a cumulative update of all security patches so far. These semi-annual updates make sure that your computer stays current. However, if your computer isn’t getting these feature updates – either because you have disabled automatic updates, you don’t ever shut down your computer, or due to an internal error – you should take action to stay current. The flavor of Windows 10 referred to as “21H2” (released in the second half of 2021) will reach “end of servicing” on June 13, 2023, meaning no more security patches will be available to you. To check your version, go to Start > Settings > System > About. Scroll down to the row marked “Version”. If the number listed is 21H2 or lower then you should update Windows now. Having trouble?
