Customers who don't want to upgrade to Windows 11 or who don't have an eligible device can subscribe to the upcoming ESU program.

"While we strongly recommend moving to Windows 11, we understand there are circumstances that could prevent you from replacing Windows 10 devices before the EOS date. Therefore, Microsoft will offer Extended Security Updates," said Jason Leznek, Principal Product Manager for Windows Servicing and Delivery.

"The ESU program for Windows 10 will include critical and/or important security updates. ESUs do not include new features, customer-requested non-security updates, or design change requests."

The company also told BleepingComputer that, for the first time, home users will also be able to buy Windows 10 ESU subscriptions.

However, Redmond has yet to share pricing details, with more information to be announced later.

"Stay tuned for more ESU program updates as we approach availability, including an ESU program for individual consumers," Leznek said.
