Is it time to move on to the “ten”? Windows 8.1 full-screen displays a message about the imminent end of support

About six months later, on January 10, 2023, Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 8.1, but the software giant has already begun to pave the way for this. On computers with the “eight”, a full-screen message about the imminent “death” of the OS has already begun to be displayed .

Microsoft itself recommends that people upgrade to a supported OS version or purchase a PC that is compatible with Windows 10/11. At the moment, about 3% of users continue to work on Windows 8.1, so, according to the company, there should not be any special problems due to the abandonment of an outdated system.

The message itself can be closed and disabled for up to 35 days, but then it will reappear. However, it can be disabled before the end of support.

Note that after January 10, the system will still be usable, but it will no longer receive security updates, bug fixes, and so on. Also, Microsoft will stop technical support for the system.
