  • Microsoft says support for Windows 7 will be closed on January 14, 2020
  • The Redmond-based company is pushing users to upgrade to Windows 8 or Windows 10

Microsoft on Wednesday said its Windows 7 operating system would not get security and technical updates from January 14, 2020, onwards and users should shift to its latest software. Microsoft also said that it is working with computer manufacturing companies like Dell and HP for making devices available at affordable prices and also working on options to roll out buyback or exchange offers.

The consumers should buy Windows 10 based PC, laptop or tablet in such a situation, which are more secure with updated features, she added.
