Windows 7 browser support

I know that MS is ending their support of Win7 and 8. What are the changes made to the operating system that requires dropping support? Is this because Chrome is dropping the support aswell?

extra thought: would it be impossible to change the operating system flag in the source code to ignore earlier versions of windows without breaking internet browsing?

Hello @datarash, thank you for bringing it up. This is mostly a chromium thing since has started ending support for win7 win 8.1 all the browser based on it will be affected, this migration to windows 10/11 has been commented for quite some time and lately they will have a post/announcement informing users about this change so we recommend to upgrade your OS to avoid compatibility issues.

Hope it resolves your concern. Regards.
