Windows 10 is getting full screen nags to make your switch to Windows 11

After installing the April cumulative updates, Windows 10 users started receiving full-screen nags claiming that its end of support is coming closer. There are also details on how to upgrade to Windows 11. As you could already expect, there is no option to permanently dismiss these notifications.

Windows 10 will reach its end on October 14, 2025. After this date, users will not receive monthly security updates, allowing new exploits to be used by attackers.

Sadly, nagging users about an upcoming end of support date on Windows with full screen notifications is a recurring occurrence. Microsoft first did this on Windows 7 almost five years ago, and is now following suit on Windows 10.

If your PC does not meet the minimum system requirements for Windows 11, then you have to either purchase a new Windows 11 PC or sign up for  the paid Extended Support Updates (ESU) program.

The subscription cost for consumers is not yet known. For customers, it will cost $61 for the first year for each device.

  1. WE DON’T WANT WINDOWS 11. GET IT? It’s a repeat of ‘Me’ and ‘Vista’. Get over it Microsoft.
