Microsoft has started rolling out an update to Windows 7 that will notify existing users about the end of the support. The software maker is stopping support of Windows 7 on January 14th, 2020, and it’s now starting to warn about this cutoff date.

Microsoft is using a notification to warn Windows 7 users, similar to the prompts the company used to get people to upgrade to Windows 7.

Microsoft’s end of support date means that Windows 7 users will no longer receive security updates, and the company wants consumers to upgrade to Windows 10 PCs instead. While the notification doesn’t mention Windows 10, Microsoft links to a new Windows 7 site that encourages consumers to upgrade their PCs.

With the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft also changed its policy from what it calls Fixed Lifecycle Policy to a Modern Lifecycle Policy, which covers products and services that are supported continuously.

It is therefore recommended by Microsoft to update your windows to the latest version before the stated date.
