From January 2020, Microsoft will no longer support Windows 7, which means that they will not offer any technical support for issues, software updates or security fixes.
Windows 10 is the latest, most secure version of Windows to be released and succeeds Windows 7.
A large proportion of College computers have been updated to Windows 10, but there are still approximately 4,000 staff computers operating on Windows 7. Being out of support presents a risk, therefore ICT has purchased one-year extended support for Windows 7. This ensures staff computers remain supported and gives the project team more time to get the rest of the College onto Windows 10 before January 2021.
These web pages will cover the benefits of Windows 10, the upgrade process provided by ICT and what to do should you require support.
