New Delhi, Tech Desk. Microsoft recently discontinued the internet explorer. Now the company has announced to stop support on its Windows 8.1 next year. Microsoft will end support for Windows 8.1 in January 2023.
The company will start giving its alerts to the users from next month i.e. July. It is worth noting that the company stopped providing support for Windows 8 from January 12, 2016. And now for Windows 8.1 too, the company will end support on January 10, 2023.
what will happen to the users now
The company has stated that Microsoft 365 apps are no longer supported on Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 as they have reached the end of their support dates. If you still run Microsoft 365 after January 10, 2023, you will also not receive updates for Microsoft Office apps. This includes features, security and other quality updates.
what is the solution of this problem
Most computers running Windows 8.1 or Windows 8 cannot upgrade to the new Windows 11. Because the old hardware of these computers will not be able to meet the requirements of the new Windows 11. So these users have the option to update their Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 to avoid this problem. Users can update their Windows by downloading Windows 10 from Microsoft’s website. Microsoft has announced that the company will continue to support Windows 10 till October 14, 2025. Along with this, the company has also advised that users buy a new computer with the latest hardware and take advantage of the features of Windows 11.
However, in today’s era, most users are using Windows 10 and now Windows 11. In such a situation, only those users will have to face this problem who have not yet updated their computer to Windows 10.
