Microsoft to soon start nagging Windows 7 users about looming end times
Microsoft in April plans to begin nagging Windows 7 users with messages that the operating system is nearing its forced retirement, the company said Tuesday.
“Beginning next month, if you are a Windows 7 customer, you can expect to see a notification appear on your Windows 7 PC,” Matt Barlow, a Microsoft marketing executive, wrote in a post to a company blog.
Preemptively labeling the nags “courtesy reminders,” Barlow told Windows 7 users to expect them “a handful of times” between April and December. Windows 7 officially falls off support on Jan. 14, 2020.
