Microsoft announced halting support. While the old version continues to work, usage is discouraged due to the lack of security updates. This applies to both Windows 10 Home and Pro and the Education and Enterprise versions reports Few users will still use Windows version 1511 as pretty much anyone automatically get updates. The version number can be checked by tapping 'winver' in the start menu and pressing enter. If you are up-to-date, the current version number is 1703. Next week Microsoft will release Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
