When Windows 7 was released in 2009, Microsoft committed to providing 10 years of product support.
Windows 7 will go end-of-life on 14th January 2020. This means that technical assistance and software updates will no longer be available. You will still be able to use your computer without updating the software. However, you will be at a higher risk of security breaches and threats.
Microsoft will also be discontinuing some of the services that are currently available with Windows 7. For example, some of the games, and programmes such as Internet Explorer, will either be discontinued, or have their support ceased.
Buying a new machine is one way in which you can move over to Windows 10 relatively smoothly. However, in some cases, you may be able to update the software on your current machine. This will depend on the machine you have and its capabilities.
