Answers to Users Questions as Microsoft Rolls Out Windows 11

Share post:

Here are the likely answers to some of the most important questions being asked by users as Microsoft releases its Windows 11 update.

For those asking whether Microsoft will proceed with the same rollout for Windows 11 as they used for 10, the answer is yes. The company further revealed that support for Windows 10 will continue through October 14, 2025, and that users will be able to license/buy/install Windows 10 in that time.

Regarding when users should expect an update to Windows 10 21H2, Microsoft has said that they will receive it “very soon”. Consumers and businesses who ask questions about how they can block Windows 11 if they don’t want to have been told that customers can choose to upgrade as they desire, and that corporate customers can use policies to ensure that Windows 11 is not offered to end-users until IT is ready for such a rollout.

When asked if anyone in the Insider Beta and Release Preview Channels will be able to upgrade from their test builds to the final Windows 11, Microsoft explained that those on the program do not need to take action since they will be switched to the final build at the time of release.

For those wondering if there is an end date for when Windows 11 will be offered to existing Windows 10 users as a free update, it seems good to note that there is currently no specific end for eligible systems.
