Microsoft to end support for Windows 7

Microsoft will end support for its popular Windows 7 operating system starting 14 January, 2020.

The company will also turn off technical support and updates of the Windows Update.

Windows 7 became available in October 2009, and the company planned to support the product for ten years. One can activate and run the operating system after 14 January, but the user will not get safety updates starting from that date.
