Office 2010 end of support

Just like Windows 7, Microsoft Office 2010 will be ending its support as well. Luckily this expiration date isn't until Oct. 13, 2020, so we still have roughly a year before support ends for this product.
What end of support means is that there will no longer be updates for this product, and most updates for Office fix performance issues and patch security flaws, meaning that if your Office 2010 installation is not running properly, or is completely broken, there will be no patch from Microsoft to fix the issue, and your version of Office would probably need to be uninstalled and re-installed again. Eventually Windows 10 will not allow you to install Office 2010 on its operating system anymore, and then you will have to buy a new version of Office.
Again, this end of support date is still almost a year away, and your installation of Office 2010 should still work just fine even after the cutoff date. However, if any files that are part of the installation break or are damaged there will be no fix for this product. So, start planning now to go to a new version of Office, if you are running Office 2010 or earlier. You can save yourself some hassle down the road.
