Microsoft is Planning to End Windows 7 Support Soon

January 2020

If you haven’t upgraded to Windows 10 yet, now would be a good time to do so as Microsoft will soon stop supporting Windows 7:

Microsoft has started notifying Windows 7 users that support for the operating system is “nearing the end.”

“After 10 years, support for Windows 7 is coming to an end on January 14, 2020,” the software giant said. But ending Windows 7 won’t be a cinch. Released in 2009, it is still one of the most widely deployed operating systems worldwide.

“Windows 7 is still very popular,” Kurt Mackie, Senior News Producer at Converge360, which publishes Redmond Magazine, told Fox News in an email.

And its popularity doesn’t appear to be fading. Windows 7 gained users in February, according to Computerworld, citing figures from Net Applications which tracks operating system share numbers.

In February, Windows 7 had roughly 38 percent of all PCs and about 44 percent of those running Windows, according to Net Applications’ numbers.

That’s close to Windows 10’s share, which actually fell slightly in February, ending the month at about 40 percent of all personal computers and 46 percent of all PCs running Windows.
