After January 14, 2020, if your PC is running Windows 7, it will no longer receive security updates. Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to a new device with Windows 10 preinstalled, which can provide the latest security updates to help keep you and your data safer.
Absolutely not. Your PC will still function unless something happens to the hardware itself. However, after support has ended, your PC will become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Windows will continue to start and run, but you will no longer receive security updates from Microsoft. Additionally, Microsoft’s customer support will no longer be providing technical support for Windows 7.
No, nothing will be removed from your PC. We do recommend backing everything up to OneDrive to ensure your data is safe as your computer ages and has a greater risk for hardware failures. That way you will have access to all your documents, files, and photos on both your PC and your smart phone. And if you decide to upgrade to a new Windows 10 PC, your files will automatically synchronize to your new PC.

Your favorite websites can be moved over to your new computer, where they can be imported into the Microsoft Edge browser (Move Internet Explorer favorites to a new PC)
Absolutely. It is easiest to save all your files to OneDrive – that way they will automatically be synchronized down to your new Windows 10 PC. To open and edit the files, you will need Office on your new PC. If you have Office 365, you simply reinstall it on a new PC. Certain older versions of Office may require you to uninstall and reinstall Office on your new PC using the Product Key (Download and install or reinstall Office)
For the best possible experience, we recommend doing a fresh installation of your programs and applications on your new Windows 10 PC. The Microsoft Store has a variety of 3rd party applications, that can be easily downloaded and installed. For any software not currently available in the Microsoft Store we recommend going to that company’s official website and downloading the Windows 10 version from there. In limited circumstances, some older software may not have an updated version that is compatible with Windows 10.
Consumers can expect to begin to receive Windows 7 EOS notifications from Microsoft in April.
To prepare for notifications, we began rolling out an update (KB4493132) on 3/19 to Windows 7 consumer devices. This update will enable notifications to appear a handful of times beginning in April.
As we previously shared in the March 12th blog, Windows 7 customers will only see notifications a handful of times between April 2019 and January 2020. To enable these notifications, the technology that manages notifications will run as a background task daily to control when reminders appear.
As a reminder, we are not confirming specific dates of the notifications beyond “April 2019”. Please encourage partners to direct customers to www.microsoft.com/windows7 as the official source of information on Windows 7 end of support from Microsoft.
Consumer devices running Windows 7 SP1 including Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium and Ultimate. Customers running Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise and Server versions and domain joined devices will not receive notifications.
In speaking with Windows 7 customers, they told us they would like a few courtesy reminders, occasionally, with early enough notice to prepare for their transition. Based on that feedback, we’ll send reminders once a month at most as we approach this important end of support date.
Yes. To turn off notifications, select “Do not notify me again” in the lower left corner of the notification, and then close the window. After they make this selection, they won’t receive any more of notifications about the upcoming end of support date.
Yes. Based on customer feedback our intention is to remind customers a handful of times as we approach the Windows 7 end of support date.
When they close the notification window, it will simply close.
Users could compare what they are seeing to the image published in our customer facing FAQ to verify it is genuinely from Microsoft. Alternatively, rather than clicking on a notification, they can visit www.microsoft.com/windows7 to learn more about Windows 7 end of support and what they need to do to get ready.
As a reminder Microsoft will never send users a notification asking them to call us or directly ask for payment.
