I was suggested to use this forum for this question.

We are a small company of 100 people in financial sector and have many large complex applications written on windows forms using C#. Currently the applications are developed on .Net 4.x framework on windows 10.  I am trying to understand how long Microsoft is planning to support Windows forms, any article on road map would be very helpful.   Business teams don't see a need to change the applications unless there is real reason. I want to make sure Microsoft is supporting this platform in future OS and .net framework. Appreciate any advice on this topic from the experts.

@Basuri you might not get many responses to your question as this is the forum for Microsoft Forms, one of the Office 365 apps, not Windows Forms which is a very different platform.
