There is, however, one caveat: Microsoft no longer provides mainstream support for Office 2007. That means there will be no new features, repairs, or security upgrades. According to the firm, versions older than 2007 are "no longer maintained and may not run on Windows 10."

If you have an Office 2007 installation that you need to keep running then you should consider upgrading. Otherwise, you're left with a program that may not be compatible with future versions of Windows or any other software or products that may also use MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

Since Microsoft does not provide support for Office 2007 we can only recommend that you upgrade to a more recent version if you need to continue using this application. You could try downloading a trial version of Office 2016 and see how it works for you. However, since this is not official software we cannot guarantee that it will work properly or at all with your version of Windows.

You should also check out what support is available for other office suites. Some companies will still supply old software with their products to ensure that they aren't missing out on any feature requests from users. If you don't want to spend money then you could always download a free trial version from each company to see which one fits your needs best.

In conclusion, yes you can still get updates for Office 2007 as long as you don't need mainstream support. Otherwise, you should consider upgrading.
