Microsoft: Microsoft 365 Office applications will completely stop supporting Windows 7/8.1/Server 2008 R2

Microsoft releases regular Updates to Microsoft 365 apps, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, OneNote, Visio, and more. These updates are governed by Microsoft's modern lifecycle strategy, which means that products continue to be supported as long as customers are kept up to date according to the product's service and system requirements and have a license to use said software. Under this policy, Microsoft 365 applications will cease support for three older Windows operating systems in January 2023.

Microsoft has announced that starting January 10, 2023, Microsoft 365 applications will completely stop supporting Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems.

Although Microsoft 365 applications on the above operating systems are no longer supported, they still receive upgrades under the customer paid version of the Extended Security Update (ESU) program. The plan is to end support for all three operating systems on January 10, 2023, so Microsoft 365 apps will be completely discontinued the same day. In addition to not being able to access security updates, new installations will also be blocked.

As expected, the only solution is to immediately update to the new supported Windows operating systems, such as Windows 10 and Windows 11, and Microsoft encourages customers to review the support lineup to determine which OS best fits their support and compatibility needs.
