After January 10, 2023, PCs running Windows 8.1 will still work, but Microsoft will no longer provide:
- Technical support for various issues
- Software updates
- Updates and security fixes
You can continue to use a computer running Windows 8.1, but without regular software updates and security patches, your computer will be more at risk for viruses and malware. We recommend upgrading to a version of Windows that is still supported. A new device that supports Windows 11 guarantees an easy transition and a pleasant experience.
Windows 11 is the most secure Windows ever made, with comprehensive protection including antivirus, firewall, web protection and more. This means that additional security features, monitoring and constant updates to protect against future threats are provided at no extra charge.
