Support for Office 2010 service pack 1 ended on the 14th October, 2014. But if you have Service Pack 2 installed, the end of support is extended until 6 months after the Windows 7 end of life, the 13th October, 2020.
What does “Supported” mean?
When your office is supported, you will have access to at least one type of assisted support, as well as free of charge security updates which are pushed out to your machine.
What Happens After the end of Support date?
The end of support does not mean it’s the end of the world. There are PC’s out there running 2003 and 2007. 2010 will not just stop working when the end date is reached. The difference will be that you will no longer receive updates to this version of office, as no new updates will be released. Bugs and errors will start to occur and potentially affect your organisation.
Windows 7 is also becoming unsupported during the same year, maintaining an updated operating system is essential for optimised security, to find out more, please read our windows 7 end of life article here.
