Support for Windows 7 is ending

All good things must come to an end, even Windows 7.  After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7.  But you can keep the good times rolling by moving to Windows 10.

You have questions, we have answers

 

Can I upgrade my existing PC to Windows 10?

Yes, you can upgrade compatible Windows 7 PCs based on these requirements with a full license.  To take advantage of the latest hardware capabilities, we recommend moving to a new PC with Windows 10.

 

What happens if I continue to use Windows 7?

You can continue to use Windows 7, but once support ends, your PC will become more vulnerable to security risks.  Windows will operate but you will stop receiving security and feature updates.

 

Can Windows 7 still be activated after January 14, 2020?

Windows 7 can still be installed and activated after support has ended.  However, to avoid security risks and viruses, Microsoft recommends that you consider upgrading to Windows 10.

 

Will Internet Explorer still be supported on Windows 7?

Support for Internet Explorer on Windows 7 devices will be discontinued on January 14, 2020.  As a component of Windows operating system, Internet Explorer follows the same support lifecycle.

 

Can I get a free upgrade to Windows 10?

Microsoft 365 Business comes with a free upgrade for users with a Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 Pro license on their device.  By purchasing Microsoft 365 Business your users can upgrade all of their old Windows Pro licensed devices at no additional cost.

 

Does this also apply to Windows Embedded 7?

There are a number of members of the Windows Embedded 7 product family with different support lifecycles.  The earliest end of support date is January 14, 2020 and the others follow thereafter. For more details see our product lifecycle page.
