When Does Windows 7 Support End?

Windows 7 support ends in January 2020, and it’s important to make an end of life plan for your Windows 7 devices to keep your systems operating efficiently and securely. While ‘end of life’ might sound alarming, if managed correctly, businesses can operate as usual.

When Does Windows 7 Support End?

Are you still running Windows 7? January 14, 2020 is the date for Microsoft when Windows 7 support stops. This means that when you start up your computer, programs will still operate the same way – however, if you have any technical issues, Windows (and service providers) will no longer provide technical support for the operating system. This change also makes your system more susceptible to viruses and security issues.

Benefits of Upgrading from Windows 7

After Windows 7 ends, an upgrade to Windows 10 Pro will help keep your business and client information safe. It will also bring with it a range of new benefits, including:

  • Efficiency: Faster boot-up, apps, and longer battery life.
  • Same old Windows: There’s no need for major retraining, with Windows 10 Pro operating in much the same way as other Windows operating systems.
  • Optimised for flexibility: Windows 10 Pro syncs across devices, allowing you to pick up your Office document from your PC, laptop or phone so that you can get your work done wherever you are and whenever it suits you.
