This information was last updated on 11-04-2015.

Since the release of Windows 10 on July 29, 2015, software vendors have been working to certify a version of their software that will function correctly on the new Microsoft operating system. The table below shows Windows 10 certification information for a number of software packages in use at MSU.

If you have a Windows 10 computer and you use software that is not Windows 10 certified, you do so at your own risk.
