Win­dows 8.1: End of Life (EOL)

Not long to go now: On 10th Jan­uary 2023 Microsoft will pro­vide the last bug fix for Win­dows 8.1. After that date, there will be no more updates – not even to close any secu­rity gaps.

For secu­rity rea­sons, you should there­fore no longer be using Win­dows 8.1 after 10th Jan­uary 2023. Microsoft rec­om­mends users update Win­dows 8.1 to a later, still sup­ported win­dows ver­sion such as 10 or 11 instead. This pre­sup­poses though that the old sys­tems still run­ning Win­dows 8.1 will also sup­port later Win­dows ver­sions. Oth­er­wise Microsoft rec­om­mends pur­chasing a new device.

The date up to which Microsoft will be pro­viding updates for Win­dows 10 and other Microsoft prod­ucts can be found here.
