Windows 11 market share declines as users seemingly shift back to Windows 10

May 2, 2024

Statcounter released a new report showing a noticeable decrease in Windows 11’s worldwide market share since Feb 2024. The struggling Windows 11 fell below 26% while Windows 10 enjoyed 70.03% of Microsoft’s OS market share.

This latest report reveals a drop of 0.97 points which translates from 26.68% to 25.65% while showing a corresponding increase in Windows 10. It’s clear that many users don’t see the appeal of shifting to Windows 11, despite many efforts by Microsoft to force migration and a series of updates and new features as it doesn’t enhance their experience or improve their quality of life. Despite being released on October 5, 2021, many users (and one has to imagine, businesses) are content with Windows 10.

It also shows nothing significant has changed since the last time we reported about these stats last year.
