In recent weeks, you may have seen social media messages and blog post warning that support for the Windows 7 operating system is set to end in January 2020.
The claims are true. Microsoft has announced that support for Windows 7 ends on January 14, 2020. Microsoft is urging people to upgrade to Windows 10 as soon as possible.
What Happens if You Don’t Upgrade?
Your computer will still function and you will not notice any immediate changes. However, after January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates, software updates, or technical support for Windows 7.
This means that your computer may become more vulnerable to various security risks such as malware attacks.
