The company had earlier announced the launching of the next version of Windows which is expected to be unveiled on June 24,
According to a report by Engadget, the support page had earlier noted when Microsoft would end support for certain versions of Windows 10. Now the page states that Microsoft started supporting Windows 10 Home and Pro on July 29, 2015 and reveals the operating system's "retirement date", says the report.
The end-of-support timeline puts the Windows 10 lifecycle at a hair over 10 years, similar to previous iterations of the OS.
Microsoft had recently cancelled Windows 10X, which was initially going to be for dual-screen devices. It said it would bring some features planned for that OS into the standard version of Windows.
"Soon we will share one of the most significant updates to Windows of the past decade to unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators," Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said recently.
The executive went on to say he's been personally testing the latest iteration of the OS for the past several months.
