Microsoft will soon begin to notify users about Windows 7 support expiration

Microsoft has been notifying Windows 7 users that support for that Operating System will end in January’s of 2020.

Now, the company plans to make its notification prompts even bigger.

Full-screen pop-ups will start show up on Windows 7 PC’s to warn about the end of life of Windows 7.

The full-screen notification will warn that “your Windows 7 PC is out of support,” and it will start appearing on January 15th, the day after support ends.

Microsoft will warn Windows 7 users who haven’t upgraded that PCs are “more vulnerable to viruses and malware” due to a lack of security and software updates and no tech support.

There will be three options to dismiss the message, including the ability to remind later, learn more, or don’t remind again. The full-screen prompt will remain on the screen until a Windows 7 user has done something with it.

Windows 7 support will end on January 14th, 2020, and Microsoft has been promoting Windows 10 as the main upgrade path for businesses and consumers.
