Welcome to the Community

 

Short answer is "no." Microsoft says they will continue to support Windows 10 into 2025. Probably longer. You don't say which computer you have, but it'll probably continue to work beyond Win 10's EOS. I've got two machines still happily running WIndows 7, mostly because I'm a fan of Windows Media Center and that's not offered on 10. 

 

By the time 2025 rolls around, there'll likely be all kinds of new hardware bells and whistles you'll want, anyway. 

 

If you have a computer that meets the system requirements above (which may or may not be amended by MS), then it might be advisable to transition, at some point, just to maintain security updates and so forth. 

 

Hope that helps
