Microsoft begins warning users with Windows 7 end of support notifications

Microsoft has begun warning users of Windows 7 that support for the system ends on January 14th 2020, less than 9 months from now.

“After 10 years, support for Windows 7 is nearing an end,” the notification reads. “January 14th 2020 is the last day Microsoft will offer security updates and technical support for computers running Windows 7. We know that change can be difficult, that’s why we’re reaching out early to help you back up your files and prepare for what’s next.”

Unfortunately for those individuals using Windows 7, there’s not much you can do beyond purchasing a new computer: Any PCs that came with Windows 7 when new would offer a poor upgrade experience and in most cases would contain incompatible components.
