Microsoft is dropping support for Windows 7 in 2020 and
apparently, the company wants users to make the shift from
Windows 7 to 10 soon. On August 1, Microsoft published a new
video titled “Windows 7 and Office 2010 End of Support” on
YouTube to promote the features of Windows 10 and recommend
users to make the shift.
“Make the shift from Windows 7 and Office 2010 to Windows 10
and Office 365,” the description of the YouTube video reads.
The video basically reminds Windows 7 users that the support
for their favourite operating system is ending soon and it’s
time to move on.
“Support for Windows 7 will end on January 14, 2020. Microsoft
will no longer provide security updates or technical support
for devices running Windows 7 operating systems. That’s why
it’s time to make the shift to Windows 10 today,” the support page reads.
Windows 7 remains the most popular desktop OS to browse the web
worldwide according to NetMarketShare but Windows 10 is
slowly catching up and it’s likely that the platform will
overtake Windows 7 soon.
