Microsoft Drops Software Support of Windows 7

For older PCs users it is possible to install Windows 10

Microsoft has finally dropped support of Windows 7, nearly ten years after first launching the operating system. Now, users still stuck on Windows 7 will not get any software support from the tech giant.

Microsoft has also urged Windows 7 users to make an upgrade to Windows 10 to enjoy new features and continued support.

“Today marks the end of support for Windows 7. Ten years ago, when we first announced Windows 7 and Office 2010, we focused on delivering the best productivity experience of the time. But since then, thanks to breakthrough advancements in technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), we’ve been able to build tools to help you take advantage of new forms of productivity. With Windows 10, the power of the cloud makes you and your organization more productive and secure than ever. ” the company said in a statement.

According to data from Netmarketshare, currently, millions of PCs are still running Windows 7 and the operating system still runs on a massive 26 per cent of all PCs.
