Microsoft recently announced that after ten years, support for Windows 7 is coming to an end. As of January 14, 2020, there will no longer be available support for the platform. Although change can be hard, Converter Technology is here to assist your Microsoft office migration. While you could continue to run Windows 7, now is also the perfect opportunity to explore Windows 10.
What does no support mean?
Although you may be panicking thinking that your computer will not operate when the 2020 date arrives, this is not the case. Your PC functionality will continue to run as it currently does. However, the end of support means that the following will no longer be available to you:
- Technical support for any issues
- Software updates, both automatic and manual
- Security updates or fixes
Steps you can take to prepare
One of the first steps you should consider taking before this change occurs is backing up your files. With the use of an external hard drive, you can have peace of mind that your data, graphics, and photos are safe from being lost. However, there are several other ways to back up or migrate your files as well. Even though the task may seem overwhelming, it’s crucial to keep your eyes on the future and the benefits you’re receiving by completing the task.
How Converter Technology can help
If you choose to continue using Windows 7, you need to realize that your files will be at higher risk for viruses and malware. This decrease in protection comes from the lack of continued software and security updates being implemented to the platform. Thus, it’s best to migrate to Windows 10.
