Recommended Windows operating systems at IU

Windows 8.x and Windows 7 are the preferred Windows operating systems at IU. Although Windows 10 is supported at IU, UITS recommends waiting a few months before upgrading; see Known issues with Windows 10 and Edge at IU. Windows Vista, even with Service Pack 2, is becoming less and less compatible with IU services, and thus is not recommended. UITS does not support previous operating systems.

New Windows computers may be equipped with either 10 or Windows 8.x. If your computer is unable to run at least Windows 7, UITS highly recommends upgrading or replacing it.
