Microsoft support for Windows 7 ends on January 14 2020
?  What does this mean






Windows 7 is one of the most popular versions of Windows among its users. It is still the most used operating system on computers despite the launch of Windows 10 3 years ago. According to the latest stats

But just as with Windows XP in April 2014, it will repeat with his younger brother Windows 14 in January 2020 as Microsoft lifts its hand completely out of this ancient system

Consequently, Windows 7 users will have a period before moving to Windows 8.1 or Windows 10. But you are not obligated to do so, you can still use it if you can protect yourself well

Starting January 14, 2020, Windows 7 users will receive a notification from Microsoft to warn against continuing to use Windows 7 due to the termination of support, with some hints for upgrading to Windows 10. What will happen after this day is that the system will not receive any updates at all, Whether updates to add new features, or fix problems

This means that in the event of a serious security vulnerabilities in it, Microsoft will not take a step towards fixing it. The same scenario occurs for Windows 7, and if people discover vulnerabilities affecting Windows 7, the company will not release security updates for it

If you are not always connected to the Internet, do not appoint anything like this. While if you are online all the time, you will be able to continue using Windows 7, but you should be very careful when dealing with things like downloading a new program, opening email attachments, or connecting a USB flash to a computer. You can certainly use anti-malware and anti-malware to try to protect yourself. But keep in mind that even these programs are ending support for older versions of Windows

This brings us to another point as well, that ending Microsoft's support for a specific version of Windows means that software development companies will also stop supporting this version, but this does not happen immediately - but gradually and slowly. If we take Windows XP as an example, we will find that Google Chrome stopped support for the system in April 2016, and Mozilla Firefox in June 2018, while ending support for Windows XP was in April 2014. So, it may take years, but some program will drop its support for Windows 7 After it expires in 2020. On the whole, you should then take care to keep all software used always up-to-date, in addition to following the protection procedures
