    That's a link to the en-gb version of the page. When the end-date first appeared on the en-us version I noticed that it took a month to filter out to the UK. Having said that, the en-us page hasn't changed yet either.

    It'd be interesting to know how many more "upgrades" took place to Windows 10 during the claimed "last week" of the assistive technology
    offer. I always thought that MS would keep the door open because their goal was to get the overwhelming majority of users on 10 over the next year or so before Windows 7 is no longer supported. The numbers mean everything to them.

    Hi there
    apparently it's still working.

    There are loads of companies still on W7 -- if consumers at home get to use and like W10 then there will be a bigger push for offices and bigger companies to upgrade to W10. Often pressure from within (users) is more successful than a load of high powered corporate salemen!!

    Ms really do want to phase out W7 ASAP. I used to like W7 a lot but whenever I logon to it these days it just seems dated (and slow !!) and it's always doing "updates".

    My big beef about W10 (or more precisely some of the apps on it) is the going for simplification - such as 1-click installs and removing menus to make things appear as if they are running on mobile phones. It's OK when these work but if there's any problem or you have something non standard you are well and truly hosed !!!.

    (Just O/T here -- I hate it also when broadcasting companies in news programs sometimes show pictures in Mobile phone format -- a thin sliver of picture down the middle of the screen with edges blurred out -- looks REDICULOUS on large TV's -- they can easily adjust the picture with technology these days to fill the screen). !!!!! If I've got a 50 inch plus TV I want to use the whole screen !!!!!).

    Cheers

    I'm still holding back on testing that with my un-upgraded Win7 laptop - pencilled in for beginning of February

    ...I blame the dumb phone users - it would have been so easy to turn the phone through 90° and shoot in widescreen

    They must still be trying to figure out how to turn it off "safely".

    Precisely, and as they've been failing to work out how to do that since the standard free upgrade "ended" on July 29, 2016 we may be in for a long wait

    So they have removed the Assistive Technologies Installer. Time to recheck whether the activation mechanisms still work for the standard Media Creation Tool/Version 1709 .iso.
