Windows 7 is somewhat of a repeat of Windows XP for Microsoft. Security updates for the former will no longer be provided after January 14, 2020 but there are still a lot of Windows 7 users. In an effort to motivate users to upgrade to a newer version of Windows, Microsoft will push out update notifications to Windows 7 users:
To help our customers get advanced notice of this change, we are reaching out with information and resources. Beginning next month, if you are a Windows 7 customer, you can expect to see a notification appear on your Windows 7 PC. This is a courtesy reminder that you can expect to see a handful of times in 2019. By starting the reminders now, our hope is that you have time to plan and prepare for this transition. These notifications are designed to help provide information only and if you would prefer not to receive them again, you’ll be able to select an option for “do not notify me again,” and we will not send you any further reminders. Just as software has changed over the years, so has hardware. To learn more about the latest line-up of modern PCs and information for moving from Windows 7 to Windows 10, just click on the “learn more” button on the notification.
