Avoid interruption: Windows 7 computers require attention!

December 4, 2019

As previously announced through Business Update, Windows 7 will no longer be supported by Microsoft after January 14, 2020. Yale ITS is actively working to identify impacted computers within your departments. Many of these computers will not be able to run Windows 10 due to outdated hardware and will need to be completely replaced.

As reports are generated, the remediation team will contact department lead administrators and support providers to schedule strategy meetings on how best to proceed for their area. In the interim, we recommend lead administrators reach out to their support providers to discuss plans to address computers that have been identified as needing remediation and are currently running the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system.

If you have any addtional questions on how to upgrade, or would like to schedule an appointment to begin the process, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 203-432-9000, or contact your local IT support provider.
