Windows 7 OS with security and support is coming to an end in 2020. That is coming up shortly. If you’re still running Windows 7, you should be looking at migrating to Windows 10 very soon.
Windows 8.1 and 7
Prior releases of the Windows operating system are governed by the Fixed Lifecycle Policy. This policy comprises two phases: mainstream support and extended support. See Microsoft Business, Developer and Desktop Operating Systems Policy for more details.
|Client operating systems||End of mainstream support||End of extended support|
|Windows 8.1||January 9, 2018||January 10, 2023|
|Windows 7, service pack 1*||January 13, 2015||January 14, 2020|
* Support for Windows 7 RTM without service packs ended on April 9, 2013. Be sure to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 to continue to receive support and updates.
Prior versions of Windows, including Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, have limited support when running on new processors and chipsets from manufacturers like Intel, AMD, NVidia, and Qualcomm. For more information, see Microsoft Lifecycle Policy. A device may not be able to run prior versions of Windows if the device hardware is incompatible, lacks current drivers, or is otherwise outside the original equipment manufacturer’s (OEM) support period.
