Office 2010 will reach its end of support on October 13, 2020. If you haven't already begun to upgrade your Office 2010 environment, we recommend you start now.
This article provides recommendations, information, and links to help administrators and IT Pros in large enterprises plan their upgrades to Office 365 ProPlus.
What does end of support mean?
Office 2010, like almost all Microsoft products, has a support lifecycle during which we provide bug fixes and security fixes. This lifecycle lasts for a certain number of years from the date of the product's initial release. For Office 2010, the support lifecycle is 10 years. The end of this lifecycle is known as the product's end of support. When Office 2010 reaches its end of support on October 13, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide the following:
Technical support for issues
Bug fixes for issues that are discovered
Security fixes for vulnerabilities that are discovered
Because of the changes listed above, we strongly recommend that you upgrade as soon as possible.
What are my options?
With Office 2010 reaching its end of support, this is a good time to explore your options and prepare an upgrade plan to either of these latest versions of Office:
Office 365 ProPlus, the subscription version of Office that comes with most Office 365 enterprise plans.
Office 2016, which is sold as a one-time purchase and available for one computer per license.
A key difference between Office 365 ProPlus and Office 2016 is that Office 365 ProPlus is updated on a regular basis, as often as monthly, with new features. Office 2016 only has the same features that it had when it was released in September 2015.
This article provides guidance on upgrading to Office 365 ProPlus.
