Microsoft Windows 8.1: Microsoft is working to shut down Windows 8.1, and is preparing to send reminders to users for it. According to Microsoft, the company will discontinue the version of Windows by January 10, 2023. By next month, Microsoft will start rolling out notifications for existing Windows 8.1 users to support the cutoff. The notifications coming from the company will be the same as those issued during the remaining updates of Windows 7, which users got from the company for end-of-support.
