Windows 7 OS Advisory for UH-owned computers: ITS currently recommends that the UH community use Windows 10 Pro or Windows 7 Pro. All ITS-supported applications and web applications work on Windows 7.

Please review Windows 10 Application Compatibility for ITS-supported applications on Windows 10.

This page shows the status of what applications were tested. Caution: common functionality was tested and might not be as comprehensive as certification by the vendor would require. If in doubt, please check with the vendor if they have more updated information regarding their application support.
