Microsoft's Online Store Will Stop Selling Windows 10 Licenses This Month

Microsoft has announced that it will no longer sell Windows 10 Home and Pro activations via its website.

Although many Windows 10 customers have yet to upgrade to Windows 11, Microsoft has officially ended online licensing for Windows 10 and recommended that everyone upgrade to Windows 11.

Users still have time to purchase the license since it will be available on their online store until January 31, 2023. Once you access their license store, you’ll get a message saying:

“January 31, 2023 will be the last day this Windows 10 download is offered for sale. Windows 10 will remain supported with security updates that help protect your PC from viruses, spyware, and other malware until October 14, 2025.” 

The said update will not mean that you cannot buy any licenses online anymore; they are still available, but they may not be directly in the Microsoft license store but instead in a third-party online store.

So, either obtain the Windows 10 license before January 31 or update your computer to Windows 11 and obtain the license for the latest Microsoft operating system.
