Microsoft is going offline its Windows 7 operating system this year. This means that you will not get any updates, security patches, bug fixes after that. Furthermore, Google Chrome will also support this operating system only for the next 18 months (until July 2021).

According to Microsoft’s website, “Microsoft made a commitment to provide 10 years of product support for Windows 7 when it was released on October 22, 2009. When this 10-year period ends, Microsoft will discontinue support for Windows 7 so that we can focus our investment on supporting new technologies and great experiences. The specific end of support day for Windows 7 will be January 14, 2020. After that, technical support and software updates from Windows Update that help protect your PC will no longer be available for the product. Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to Windows 10 sometime before January 2020 to avoid a situation where you need service or support that is no longer available.”

Although Microsoft usually makes you buy any Windows upgrade, here’s how you can upgrade your system from Windows 7 to Windows 10 for free.
