Windows 10 is that operating system that Microsoft wants everybody to utilize; however, a new update for Windows 7 might convince users to stick with old software for now. It has been noted that Windows 10 numbers carry out to expand with millions of users now switching over to its latest OS.
According to the latest figures, there are now more than 825 million devices running Windows 10, and it means that Microsoft is closing in on its remarkable one billion aims.
For the time being, data from NetMarketShare displays how Windows 7 has seen a downfall of about two percent of its users amid February and March present year.
This rush of people switching to Windows 10 has an appropriate reason as Microsoft declared that it would no longer provide support for Windows 7 from next year. Though, it also seems that the US firm is giving users of this older operating system a massive boost which may maintain them from rushing to install Windows 10.
In its website, Microsoft also confirmed that it would allow Windows 7 as well as Windows 8 users to get easy access to the latest preview builds from the Microsoft Edge Canary channel. With this, it is clear that the firms’ new web browser will be accessible to try and test on every major desktop podium.
The company also revealed that user will get the experience as well as feature set on prior versions of Windows to be mostly similar as on Windows 10. It counts forthcoming support for Internet Explorer mode for our enterprise customers.
In terms of the update, the Microsoft Edge Team supposed ‘delivering the latest version of Microsoft Edge to all supported versions of Windows is a segment of our goal to perk up the web browsing experience for our clients on each device and also to allow developers to build great experiences along with less fragmentation.
Microsoft edge will have similar up to date podiums as well as the same developer tools in terms of all supported options. We hope you will for sure try out the preview today and also share your feedback in the Microsoft Edge Inside community.
Corporate Vice President, Windows, Matt Barlow said that ‘ from the starting of next month if you are Windows 7 customer you can expect to see a notification appear on your Windows 7 PC. This is a courtesy reminder that you can find a handful of times in 2019.
With these reminders, our hope is that you have time to plan and also to prepare for this transition. Thank you all who have loved Windows 7 along with Office 2010 and for letting us to serve you and to be the significant part of our lives. We are very much grateful for your loyalty, and also we are here to help you through this transition.’
The time when Windows 10 initially launched in 2015, Microsoft aimed to have one billion users in just two months to three years. Also, that number is getting closer and with Windows 7 support ending soon maybe they will lastly hit that magical figure.
