Microsoft exits support forums

Angled Microsoft logo

But there will be "no proactive reviews, monitoring, answering, or answer marking of questions", Microsoft said.

Microsoft Band - this topic will be locked. It has forums for many Microsoft products and Microsoft employees a number of agents, usually third-party contractors, who interact with users who post on the forum.

Windows 7, however, isn't the only product meeting its end of life when it comes to forum tech support.

Microsoft's Answers Community is operated by Microsoft.

People can fix their issues by getting answers from other users.

Gorka agreed with Brian Kilmeade on "Fox & Friends" that the nuclear weapons agreement should be submitted as a verifiable treaty. Trump responded on Twitter, saying: 'The fact that I am having a meeting is a major loss for the US , say the haters & losers'.

While you won't get technical support from the company on your queries on the forum topics for products that have reached the end of support, Microsoft is still required to send security updates to Windows 7 under the extended support period. Support for the following products is being discontinued across various forums in the Microsoft Answers community. Nonetheless, as Windows 7 and 8.1 still enjoy vast saturation in the general public, one can only imagine this is Microsoft's way of telling the hangers-on to move or lose support.

It is unclear if Microsoft's wording is off as Microsoft could mean "extended support" instead of just "support". Also, the option for paid support from Microsoft is always there until the extended support ends.

On the Volish news groups it is being seen as a cunning plan by Microsoft to force users to upgrade to Windows 10 and the later products. Support that was previously available in the Mobile devices forum will continue in the Other Windows mobile devices topic.
