As of January 12, Windows 8 is no longer officially supported by Microsoft. Upgrade to Windows 8.1 or run the risk of exposing your computer to potential security risks and threats. Microsoft usually supports an operating system for 10 years but a different arrangement is in place for Windows 8. The company is treating Windows 8.1 as a service pack for Windows 8.


Windows 8.1 will be supported by Microsoft through January 2023, while Windows 10's support lifecycle runs through October 2025.
