MS Windows 7 is one of the world's most popular operating system, bigger than all Linux and Macs combines.
Personally I have a bunch of desktops on Windows 7, that I would love to benchmark, and they are not going to be upgraded to Windows 10 anytime soon.

Please consider adding support for Windows 7 to Geekbench 5.

Thanks in advance,

    Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows 7 over four years ago, making it hard for us to test and validate Geekbench 5 on Windows 7. Geekbench 5 should work on Windows 7 (and does in our limited testing) but we cannot officially support it.

    Geekbench 5 may work on Windows 7, but it is not officially supported.

    Geekbench 4 and earlier will work on Windows 7. You can download Geekbench 4 from the following location: https://www.geekbench.com/geekbench4/download/
