Microsoft has ended support for Windows 10 version 21H2, also known as "November 2021 Update".

 Windows 10 version 21H2 is no longer supported

Traditionally, Microsoft recommends upgrading to Windows 11 if your PC meets the minimum system requirements for that operating system. Otherwise, you can go with Windows 10 version 22H2, the last and the latest version of Windows 10.

Windows 10 21H2 November 2021 Update has been officially released on November 16, 2021. It didn't bring much in terms of new features for consumers. By that time, Microsoft was already focused on Windows 11. The May 2020 Update, October 2020 Update, May 2021 Update, and November 2021 Update Windows 10 releases are built on the same codebase and therefore are just minor updates for one another.
