3rd Party Software Changes after Windows 7 End of Support

Windows 7 Video Support Warning
Microsoft has now ended support for Windows 7. Lightroom Classic still has limited support for Windows 7 SP1 64-bit, but it can’t take advantage of GPU acceleration, or HEIC file format support.

After 9.2, Lightroom Classic will also no longer be able to playback video on Windows 7. This will affect the import, playback and export of new and existing videos in your catalog, as well as the ability to use the Slideshow module.

Norton Security

If you are on Windows 7, your Norton client security software will no longer receive the new software updates that the supported versions of Windows (Windows 10, Windows 8, and Windows 7 Service Pack 1) will receive.

However, your Norton client security software will continue to receive the latest malware definitions by LiveUpdate, vulnerability updates, and compatibility fixes.

3rd party sync software for Windows 7 64 bit with Outlook 2010 64 bit?
Well, I discovered the bad news that Windows Mobile Device Center doesn't work with Outlook 2010 if installed as 64 bit. Microsoft says to "fix" this by uninstalling Office 2010 and installing the 32 bit version! Ha! They have no plans for a real fix. My question is are there any 3rd-party sync...
