Microsoft launched Windows 10 officially on July 29, 2015 and after two years the company has decided to end support for its Original version of Windows 10 . The Original Windows 10 version had received major upgrades and was made better and faster.

Currently Microsoft has released its 3rd major update for Windows 10 users which has started rolling out last week. The company has now confirmed that it has decided to drop support for the Original version of its Windows 10 OS next month.

Starting May 9, the Original Windows 10 version 1507 will no longer be supported and will not receive any security or quality updates from Microsoft. The company had earlier planned to end support in the month of March but later on decided to push it to May after the release of the Creators Update.

The company requests users to upgrade to the latest version of the OS to continue receiving Updates on Windows 10 like the Version 1511 (“November Update”), version 1607 (“Anniversary Update”) or the latest version 1703(“Creators Update”).

If users are not interested to upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10, they can stick to the original version but will not be able to get any security fixes which would mean users will be opening their PCs to security threats.
