Next month Windows 7 End-of-Life


Windows 7 end of life popup

Next month, Windows 7 users will start getting pop up reminders from Microsoft that Windows 7 will no longer be supported after January 2020 and that its life is up after ten years.  

If you want to know more then, I found this excellent article which discusses in depth the details. 

Windows 7 Users of End of Support Date

We recommend that if you are still running Windows 7, that you update to Windows 10 as most computers that can run Windows 7 can run Windows 10. It does not involve for most of you a change in the computer.


So our server runs Windows 7 professional - will this no longer be supported as well??

Jenny Scullin, Windows 7 professional will soon not be supported it will be safe to use it till January 14, 2020, although no new features will be added. So they are giving you about nine months.
