Back on January 13, 2015, the tech giant Microsoft ended mainstream support for the popular Windows 7 OS but later announced that it’ll be ending support completely for Windows 10 on January 14, 2020. We all know Microsoft Windows 7 is loved by millions and even still prefered by many to date even though mainstream support has ended for it, it’s considered reliable and a more stable OS to Windows 10.
Microsoft Windows 7 Support Extended
Even after Microsoft had suggested that users should migrate to the latest Windows version, to continue to receive security update and update important updates, so many users had decided not to move to the new OS version (Win 10) and it has prompted the company to offer two years extra support to customers who are willing to pay for it.
The reason for this being that a lot of Enterprise customers are still running Windows 7 operating systems on their computers. As a part of the Extended Security Updates (ESU) plan, Microsoft Windows 7 will continue to receive security updates until January 2023.
It’s worth noting that ESU plan is only available to customers running Windows 7 Professional and Enterprise editions.
Also, Microsoft will ensure users will be able to run Office 360 ProPlus on Windows 7 through 2023 if users decide to extend their support.
Aside from this, Microsoft has also offered a new Desktop App Assure feature which is available for free; this service ensures that most of the apps designed for Windows 7 will continue to run on Windows 10 and if users encounter any problem, he/she can file a ticket via Microsoft FastTrack service.
