How to Install Windows 7?

Windows 7 is nearing its end, but that hasn’t discouraged people from using it. Microsoft is all set to end Windows 7 in just a few months time by ending security patches and support for the OS. But the diehards of Windows 7 still want to install Windows 7 on their devices.

There are several reasons why people are refusing to dump Windows 7. Dumping off Windows 7 can be annoying for large businesses that have already installed Windows 7 across their systems. For individual users, Windows 7 offers familiarity and simplicity that other versions of Windows do not have. Some users may have had a bad experience with Windows 8’s failed touch-focused experiment that introduced the tile interface which can be seen on Windows 10 as well.
