Microsoft Windows 10

Windows 10 is the latest version of the Windows operating system from Microsoft.

Windows 7 was released more than ten years ago, and Microsoft plan to stop supporting it with security updates.

Windows 10 upgrades - latest update

We have paused work to upgrade our University’s managed laptop and desktop computers to Windows 10 due to the latest COVID-19 restrictions.

If you have already submitted a request to upgrade your laptop or desktop to Windows 10 and are waiting for this to take place, IT Services will contact you when upgrades are able to restart. This is likely to be when lockdown restrictions are lifted and staff are able to return to campus.

In the meantime, you may continue to use your Windows 7 device for work.
