It has been known for a long time that the official support for Windows 7 is nearing the end. January 14, 2020, is the date, then Microsoft will no longer provide free support to users of this OS and security updates will stop. You will still be able to use Windows 7, but in many ways, you will be left to yourself, at your own risk.
