Loved by many users, Windows 7 is more than a decade old, but its support is coming to an end. Microsoft is now less than a month away from shutting down security updates for the system, which will stop arriving on January 15, 2020.
Although support time for the system is coming to an end, the OS still has a large market share. Even with Microsoft's campaigns to migrate for free to Windows 10, Windows 7 is used on 26.86% of PCs, surpassing MacOS and even Windows 8.1, according to NetMarketShare data.
Shortly after the support period ends, Microsoft will start displaying full-screen warning pop-ups advising users to migrate to a different operating system. After all, continuing on Windows 7 can lead to security vulnerabilities and lack of compatibility with modern programs.
Upgrade to Windows 10 for free
If you are a Windows 7 user and want to upgrade to Windows 10, you can migrate to the new version of the operating system without paying anything officially.
We show in a quick video how simple it is to do to leave no doubt!
The update process can be done using a tool from Microsoft itself, which allows you to update directly on the machine running Windows 7 or create a bootable USB stick with the operating system.
