Windows 7: One Year to Go

Loading...
Windows 7 Extended Support ends on January 14 2020 for most users. In this video I explain the exact situation, including detailing the extended security updates announced by Microsoft in September 2018, which only cover a limited number of Windows 7 versions and licenses. I also discuss why nearly 40 per cent of PC users are still running Windows 7, and the choices they face.

The Microsoft documentation referred to in the video is as follows:
