Microsoft ends Windows 7 support for some older generation computers, ahead of the operating system’s 2020 EOL date. The Redmond company is rushing to kill the classic OS. This might be another move to market Windows 10, by forcing users to upgrade their computers.
We have already told you that the company has officially discontinued the Microsoft Answers support forums for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. And you must be aware of the false marketing which claims Windows 7 will not be supported on computers powered by the Intel Kabylake and Ryzen processors.

Microsoft Answers support forums for Windows 7 and 8.1 have been discontinued officially. The Redmond company has made the announcement on its website, where the statement clearly states that the forums will no longer be supported by official staff.

Back in November 2015, we reported that Microsoft had begun reminding users of Windows 7, that the default browser in the operating system, Internet Explorer (versions 7, 8, 9 and 10) is reaching its end of support soon.
The Redmond Company took the announcement, as an oppurtunity to promote Microsoft Edge.
Of course to use that, one would have to upgrade to Windows 10. Anyway, the end of support for older versions of IE, is nearing, really soon, and a Windows Update will be rolled out next week to which will remind users of the same.
And when I say ask, I meant nag (it’s Microsoft we’re talking about). Microsoft has announced that it will [...]
