What Version of Windows is on my Computer?






As of January 14, 2020 Microsoft will no longer provide security updates for Windows 7.

What does this mean for you if you're on Windows 7? 
In a nutshell, if you are on anything other than Windows 10 after this date, we would not recommend connecting to the internet with your computer. After January 14, 2020 you will become highly vulnerable to viruses and malware, as there will no longer be security updates, which is why we highly recommend upgrading to Windows 10.

How do I know what version of Windows I'm using?
If you're not sure if you are on Windows 7 or Windows 10, the above pictures can give you a little guidance. 

The picture on the LEFT is the Start Menu for Windows 10
- 4-square tiles on bottom left hand corner make up the Start Menu
- When you click the Start Menu tiles appears next to the list of applications

The picture on the RIGHT is the Start Menu for Windows 7 
- 4-colored tiles on the bottom left hand corner make up the Start Menu
When you click the Start Menu you will see a list of applications 


If for any reason you're not sure which one your on, please feel free to call us and we'd be happy to help you.
