Windows 10 Update Latest News: These are the Features That Have Been or Will Be Removed in the Future
The recent Windows 10 Update has finally rolled out, bringing with it several changes that will benefit users. Apart from these advantages, however, Microsoft is also going to elbow out previous features that are deemed no longer necessary for users moving forward.
First up, the latest Windows 10 Update will be removing support for the XDDM-based remote display drivers. The company announced that “Independent Software Vendors that use XDDM-based remote display driver should plan a migration to the WDDM driver model” instead, PCMag reported.
This month’s Windows 10 Update will also be getting rid of the sync feature of the desktop messaging app. The feature allowed Windows Mobile device users to connect their handset to their personal computer and keep copies of conversation into its system. This change is hardly surprising given that Microsoft’s mobile OS will reach its end cycle this coming December, rendering the sync feature obsolete.
As for other features that will no longer be supported in the future, Windows To Go will be among the candidates that are included in this category. Microsoft said that the reason behind the decision was due to Windows To Go not supporting feature updates and is stifling the user’s ability to stay current. What’s more, the USB needed to take advantage of the feature is no longer of interest to many original equipment manufacturers. Moving forward, future Windows 10 Update will also be removing Print 3D replaced by 3D Builder, which can be downloaded through the Microsoft Store.
Lastly, the Taskbar settings roaming and Wi-Fi WEP and TKIP features are set to disappear as well. Regarding what’s fresh, the recent Windows 10 Update has provided a new Windows Sandbox feature that allows users to run a .exe in an isolated desktop environment, The Verge reported.
But arguably the best upgrade that the recent Windows 10 Update gave to users is the ability to pause these updates, as well as giving users the decision when to install the latest major version. This is a significant change for Windows 10 users, especially how the recent fiasco unfolded.
