Microsoft to stop support for Windows 7 from January 2020

Windows 7

Microsoft on Wednesday confirmed that it will officially end support for its Windows 7 operating system on January 14, 2020. From this day, Windows 7 will not be supported on laptops and desktops and will no longer get security and technical updates. Though the 10-year-old software will continue to function, but Microsoft customer service will not be available to provide Windows 7 technical support.

“Support for Windows 7 will close on January 14, 2020. This means that after this, the operating system will not get security and technical updates. So, the risk of using the computer devices running on it will increase,” Farhana Haque, Group Director of Microsoft India said at a press conference.

The tech giant suggests the users to shift to a Windows 10 based desktop, laptop or tablet as this is the latest operating system that’s productive and secure, and comes with updated features.

The shift to the modern desktop is already underway in organizations around the world. The cost for troubleshooting or fixing over four-year-old computers is more than the cost invested to purchase three or more fast and modern devices, with zero hassles, as per a report.

The transition from older version to the newest OS will benefit the organizations with better security and productivity gains offered by the modern desktops.

Microsoft also added that it is already working with the computer manufacturing companies such as Dell and HP to make the devices available at affordable costs. It is also seeing options to roll out buyback or exchange offers for its users.
