It now appears that the company is finally ready to sunset Windows 7. Microsoft's updated Windows lifecycle fact sheet states that the company will end extended support for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020, which means Microsoft won't release any more updates and security fixes after that date. So, if you're clinging to your old Windows 7 powered PC, there's only a year left.Prior to the cessation of official forum support for Windows 7, Microsoft ended mainstream support for it in early 2015 and announced an extended timeline which ends on January 14, 2020.

The end of Windows 7 extended support has been detailed on the company's Windows lifecycle fact sheet.
