Why Microsoft has stopped support windows 7?

Mar 12, 2020 1:54AM PDT

I think windows 7 is the best product of Microsoft, it is one of the popular and most used windows of history. But currently, Microsoft has denied backup support for windows 7. What is the reason behind it?

The two main reasons:
1. Promoting the use of Windows 10.
2. Cost savings. It's expensive to keep supporting it.

Just last month a client could pay for support of Windows 7. Maybe your question needs refinement. The free support is gone, that's for sure. But there is still paid support.
