Microsoft faces a problem with trying to get people to update the operating system via computers when new versions of Windows are too costly.

Microsoft officially ended support for the Windows 7 operating system about a year ago, but many PC users around the world continue to use the operating system.
It is difficult knowledge The exact number of Windows 7 users still using this operating system.
One report says that when Windows 7 reached end of support last year, around 200 million computers worldwide continued to use the operating system.
Advisory figures providing data from the US government’s Digital Analytics Program indicate that 18.9 percent of Windows PCs are running Windows 7, as of December 2019.
Metrics at the end of 2020 show that about 8.5 percent of Windows computers are still running Windows 7.
This represents a significant decrease in Windows 7 users throughout the year, but it still indicates that a large number of people remain on Windows 7.
