The original version of Windows 10 - that is version 1507 - is reaching the end of its lifecycle. Microsoft will no longer be issuing security updates to machines running this iteration of the OS.
Microsoft is hosting an online AMA ('Ask Microsoft Anything') event later this week, offering the "opportunity to connect with members of the Windows product and engineering teams".
