Microsoft reported through your site that, starting January 15, 2020, Windows 7 users will receive a full-screen warning that official support for this operating system has ended.
The warning was introduced in the latest December update – released on Tuesday (10) – and will appear on Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional and Ultimate versions of Windows 7. According to Microsoft, customers who have purchased a Extended Security Update (ESU) must follow specific procedures to continue receiving security updates after extended support ends on January 14, 2020 (more on this, on here). According to the software giant, machines that are part of a domain will not display the notification.
Devices will receive update 1909
The warning is not intended to get users to upgrade to Windows 10. In fact, as the Neowin Web site states, Microsoft wants its customers to buy a new machine that already has its latest operating system installed. The company claims that PCs designed to run Windows 7 are using technology 10 years ago. In addition to a lot of things having changed after so long, the company argues that new hardware is faster and safer.
Please note that full screen notification may be temporarily or permanently discarded. After January 14, users will not be prevented from using the operating system, "only" will no longer receive base support from Microsoft.

Windows 7 remains extremely popular even after so many years. Many emphasize its lightness and simplicity in daily use, especially in direct comparison with its successors.
