Users of Windows 10 could now get concise information about their browsing history, search history, location activity, and Cortana's Notebook by signing in with their Microsoft account and visiting a website. Three years ago, the company used some of the same tactics when it disparaged Windows XP, whose retirement was then quickly approaching, and trumpeted Windows 7 as its replacement. Windows 7 also does not recognise many modern peripherals like printers as hardware manufacturers are producing devices compatible with the latest operating systems.

Windows 7's extended support ends on January 14, 2020.

Changes to the Windows Analytics dashboard will also allow users to "use their own telemetry to provide new insights and ensure compliance on the upgrade, update and device health processes within their organizations".

Microsoft is also letting Insiders try out new features for Windows Information Protection that are created to give enterprise users more control over how encrypted work files are copied and managed on other devices and applications.
