Microsoft is phasing out Windows 7 and 8 – what does this mean for you?
Every Windows product has a lifecycle. This lifecycle begins when a product is released and ends when it’s no longer supported. The expansion of Windows 10 means that MCFS will now be phasing out our support for Windows 7 and 8, outlined here:
- Effective immediately no new features will be added to Windows 7
- Windows 8 mainstream support (new updates and features) will end in 2018
- Effective immediately all new Windows downloads will be Windows 10
- All support for Windows 7 will end in 2020
- All support for Windows 8 will end in 2023
- All support for Windows 10 will end in 2025
Please also note that some repairs to hard drives operating Windows 7 or Windows 8 may result in complementary upgrades to Windows 10. Please contact MCFS Tech Support if you may need a repair or have questions about this.
