Before Microsoft discontinues support for Windows 7, there are a few things you may need to do to prepare your PCs. On January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer:
*offer technical support
*provide software updates
*provide security updates.
What do you need to do now to ensure your office and personal computers continue to work? There are a few things. You don’t want to continue using a machine running Windows 7 after next January because it will be susceptible to viruses and malware. You need to consult your IT team to see whether Windows 10 can be installed on your existing machine, as Microsoft recommends that it be installed on a new machine.
What you can do to prepare:
1. Run a backup to make sure files and photos are saved. OneDrive or an external hard drive are good options.
2. Investigate new computer options. Today’s machines are faster and more affordable.
3. Learn about Windows 10. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/tips/home?product=windows .
