Windows 7 will no longer be supported

Microsoft has announced that it will stop the development and support of the Windows 7 operating system.
On the Microsoft site we read the following.
The specific end of support day for Windows 7 will be January 14, 2020. After that, technical assistance and software updates from Windows Update that help protect your PC will no longer be available for this product. Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to Windows 10 sometime before January 2020 to avoid a situation where you need service or support that is no longer available.
In practical terms, this means that further use of Windows 7 entails a real security risk and that neither Microsoft nor K-Force can help you further if you encounter any problems with the system. For example, we strongly advise against doing things like PC banking.
What do you need to do?
Older systems are often more difficult to upgrade to Windows 10. Therefore, in most cases, it is recommended to purchase a new device. However, as each case is specific, we suggest that you make an appointment for a check-up and we can then determine which option is best for you; upgrade or purchase a new device. An advantage is that today you have a much more efficient system for +/- the same budget of 8 years ago.
