Today is the day the tech world says goodbye to Windows 7. The mythical operating system will no longer be supported, ie security updates starting today. This means that most users who see bugs from now on will not have bugs, at least not officially.

For companies, those who paid for the support extension will continue to have it until 2023. However, Microsoft has made a point of encouraging companies to upgrade to Windows 10 by placing high prices on support extensions. Therefore, the best solution is the upgrade.

I still have Windows 7, what do I do?

In 2015 Windows promoted Windows 10 by offering the free upgrade to all users with genuine Windows 7/8 / 8.1 licenses. Supposedly this promotion only lasted a year but according to Windows Latest, it is still possible to enjoy the upgrade.

To do this, you must install Microsoft’s Media Creation Tool and enter your Windows 7 product key. Once you have completed the upgrade, you should have a normal Windows 10 key so that you can enjoy the new operating system.

It is important to note that this solution does not work for all users but it is worth trying. We also advise that you should always back up your data before these changes. If you’re not sure, simply buy a Windows 10 license online.

Windows 7 is still present on a computer room

According to Net Market Share data, Windows 7 is still present in 26.6% of all computers in the world. The operating system was released in 2010 after the troubled reputation of Windows Vista. It was certainly one of the best versions of Windows that Microsoft has ever released.
