As we move out of summer, Windows 10 users will be bracing themselves for the second feature update of the year. If all goes to plan, this should be along in the next month or two. We take our now traditional early peek at what new features we can expect to see on our desktops in a few weeks time.

The days of Microsoft's venerable Windows 7 operating system are literally numbered. All support will be ending for the software in about 18 months time (on January 14th 2020, to be precise). This blog explores the ramifications of this and what you should be doing about it.

Microsoft have announced that the next Windows 10 feature update will start rolling out to users from today (April 30th). This will bring several new features to Windows 10 machines. This blog just gives a quick overview with links to more detail, and also how to temporarily postpone receiving this update if necessary.

Microsoft have unsurprisingly announced that there will be a new version of their Office suite launched this year. This new version will start rolling out to early adopters soon, with everyone else getting it a few months later. However, those not using Windows 10 will be out of luck...

Microsoft have announced that there will be no further support for any of the applications within the 2007 version of their Office suite. This means this version of the software will no longer be patched, therefore leaving anyone running it on their machines vulnerable to attack.

Microsoft have recently announced that they will be releasing a new version of their ubiquitous Office suite. The various versions will include some or all of the usual suspects - Word, Excel, Powerpoint et al. This release is targeted at those individuals and businesses that use the package but haven't signed up to Microsoft's 365 subscription service.

We're now only a few weeks away from the launch of the next big Windows 10 update. This update is being called, somewhat confusingly, the "Creators" update. This is also what they called the last update in April. This is to draw attention to the fact that the new features are also targeted at content creators.
