Windows 10 update : What’s new for 2020. The countdown to the end of Windows 7 is already underway. Microsoft will stop supporting these obsolete operating systems in a month. With the deadline fast approaching, the US company has introduced a new smart plan to get users to make the change.
January 14 is the date when support for Windows 7 ends and, from that day, Microsoft will begin to fill the screens with an alert that warns users about the need to update. The full screen warning will indicate to users that their “Windows 7 PC is not compatible”.
The message continues to warn Windows users that if they don’t update their computers they will be more vulnerable to viruses and malware.
This is due to the fact that Microsoft will no longer send security updates, software updates or have any technical support. The alert ends by saying: “Microsoft strongly recommends using Windows 10 on a new PC to get the latest security and protection features against malicious software.”
This alert will indicate rooted on the screen until the user clicks for more information or request to be reminded later; It is not clear how often it will appear if users decide not to update.
Many might be surprised to see how many people are still using Windows 7. According to NetMarketShare, as of November, this 26.86 percent of Windows fans still used this old operating system.
Windows 10: Microsoft is updating its PC and this is the reason why Windows 10 now has a 53 percent stake. Explaining more about the end of Windows 7, the US firm said: “Microsoft promised to provide 10 years of product support for Windows 7 when it launched on October 22, 2009.
“When this 10-year period ends, Microsoft will discontinue Windows 7 support so we can focus our investment on supporting new technologies and excellent new experiences.
“The specific end of support day for Windows 7 will be January 14, 2020. After that, technical support and software updates for Windows Update that help protect your PC will no longer be available for the product.
“Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to Windows 10 sometime before January 2020 to avoid a situation where you need service or support that is no longer available.
