After 15 months of Testing for the Windows Insider project, the Windows 10 May 2020 (20H1/Version 2004) feature update was released on May 27. This feature update introduces a number of new features and improvements, but also cuts off some of the features and features that are outdated or underused.
Of particular concern is the Windows To Go feature. The feature was first unveiled with the Windows 8 system, and the last feature update to support the feature was October 2018, which was removed from the May 2019 feature update.
Microsoft also removed the built-in Messaging and Mobile plans apps in the May 2020 feature update. However, both applications are still supported on cellular-enabled devices.
Since the death of Windows 10 Mobile, the built-in Messaging app has been out of action, so it’s not a loss. Last year, Microsoft turned off sync for the Messaging app. With the May 2020 update, the app is finally removed from the operating system. You can use the Your Phone app and Dell Mobile Connect to sync your phone information.
In the May 2020 feature update, Cortana will remove consumer-focused features such as playing or searching for music, smart home products, and other consumer-centric features.
In addition, in the May 2020 feature update, three features are no longer actively developed:
The Companion Device Framework, a way to manage devices such as the Micorosft Band, is no longer in development.
The classic version of The Edge browser is no longer developed, replacing the new Chromeum-based Edge browser
Microsoft is no longer developing the Dynamicdisks feature, which has been replaced by the Storage Spaces feature.
It’s also worth noting that Microsoft has listed the Tablet, Notepad, and Paint apps as optional features in Windows 10 2004;
