Microsoft Plans to Forcibly Update Some Windows 10 PCs

Microsoft only supports a few versions of Windows 10 at this time. People who are willing to upgrade face a major problem, as earlier versions of Windows 10 no longer receive critical security updates. Users who are still operating Windows 10 version 20H1 will be forced to update as a result of the situation.

The first part of Microsoft’s forced upgrade is being rolled out using a machine learning algorithm. This method will be used on PCs running Windows 10 version 20H1, which will be supported by Microsoft until May 10th, 2022. Microsoft stated the final date for Windows 10 20H1 when it was released, and the first part of their compulsory update strategy was declared in January of this year.

To be clear, Microsoft will not compel you to upgrade to Windows 11. Your PC will just receive a Windows 10 version 21H2 upgrade from the business. The 21H2 version will be supported by Microsoft until June 2023.

Navigate To settings and go to the “About” tab to see your Windows 10 build number. You will no longer receive security patches from Microsoft if you aren’t operating Windows 10 version 21H1 or 21H2. To prevent a sudden upgrade that may be annoying, I recommend updating individually.
