Six months on, Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system has chalked a new milestone. Crossing the 800 million mark for devices running on
Windows 10. At the announcement of Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Microsoft said Windows 10 was running on 700 million devices. This also comes as We approach its 4th year in July.

Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft Corporate Vice President, Modern Life & Devices Group shared this news in a tweet. Thanking customers and partners for helping reach this new milestone.

Thank you to all our customers and partners for helping us achieve 800 million #Windows10 devices and the highest customer satisfaction in the history of Windows

There are more than 800 million devices running Windows 10.


Microsoft was forced to accept it couldn’t reach its 1 billion devices target as early as 2017. When it announced Windows 10 was on 600 million devices then. Many believe this happened due to cutting off of Windows 10 on mobile devices. With Windows 7 nearing its support life many users and enterprise customers might finally make their Windows 10 leap.
