Important news for fans of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1

Windows 7 to Windows 10

Microsoft has recently announced changes in policy aimed at getting its users to migrate to Windows 10 with its advanced security and productivity features.

From 1 November 2016, Microsoft will not allow further distribution of Windows 7 certificate of authenticity licenses. The legacy systems are being phased out. It’s still possible for original equipment manufacturers to sell Windows 10 machines with the downgrade to Windows 7 pre-installed, but this will also be phased out in 12 months’ time. Microsoft’s Extended Support for Windows 7 will end on 14 January 2020, and for Windows 8.1 on 10 January 2023.

It’s tough to remember all those dates, but surprisingly easy to make a switch to Windows 10. If you’d like our help with that, just call.
