My father, who will hopefully turn 80 in April, has a Dell PC running Windows XP. We’ve thought about getting him a new PC with Windows 8 or 10 on it, but he would have to learn a new OS and would likely get frustrated and give up. He lives 1200 miles away so I can’t run over to his house every other day to help him out. As it is, he calls me 3-4 times a week with questions and issues that I have to diagnose over the phone for him… but I’m not complaining. :rolleyes:
Recently he started getting a daily message that says that Google will no longer provide updates to Chrome on Window XP at the end of the year. After a quick search I found this.
I don’t care that Chrome isn’t going to be supported on XP and have explained to him that everything should continue to work as it does today. My dad doesn’t want to see this same message every day for the next 10 months and wants to turn it off. He contacted Microsoft and they said he would have to purchase a $99 support agreement before they would tell him how to turn it off. :dubious:
Does anyone know if there is a way to turn off this message so he doesn’t have to see it every day? It’s a minor annoyance for him, but he complains about it constantly to me. I can’t seem to find an answer searching the Internet.
