The end of the Windows 7


The end of the Windows 7 lifecycle, otherwise known as end of life, is set for January 2020. This means Microsoft will discontinue all support, including paid support, and all updates, including security updates.

Until then, the operating system (OS) is in an in-between phase known as extended support. During this phase, Microsoft is offering paid support, though not the complimentary support that comes with the license. In addition, Microsoft continues to provide security updates but not design and feature ones.
