    Features being removed or deprecated in Windows 10 version 1903


    Last Updated: 08 Nov 2019 at 10:33
    Each version of Windows 10 adds new features and functionality; occasionally we also remove features and functionality, often because we've added a better option. Below are the details about the features and functionalities that we removed in Windows 10, version 1903. The list below is subject to change and might not include every affected feature or functionality.

    Note: Join the Windows Insider program to get early access to new Windows 10 builds and test these changes yourself.

    Features we removed or will remove soon

    The following features and functionalities are removed from the installed product image for Windows 10, version 1903, or are planned for removal in an upcoming release. Applications or code that depend on these features won't function in this release unless you use another method.

    Feature Details
    XDDM-based remote display driver Starting with this release the Remote Desktop Services uses a Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) based Indirect Display Driver (IDD) for a single session remote desktop. The support for Windows 2000 Display Driver Model (XDDM) based remote display drivers will be removed in a future release. Independent Software Vendors that use XDDM-based remote display driver should plan a migration to the WDDM driver model. For more information on implementing remote indirect display driver ISVs can reach out to [email protected].
    Desktop messaging app doesn't offer messages sync The messaging app on Desktop has a sync feature that can be used to sync SMS text messages received from Windows Mobile and keep a copy of them on the Desktop. The sync feature has been removed from all devices. Due to this change, you will only be able to access messages from the device that received the message.

    Features we’re no longer developing

    We're no longer actively developing these features and may remove them from a future update. Some features have been replaced with other features or functionality, while others are now available from different sources.

    If you have feedback about the proposed replacement of any of these features, you can use the Feedback Hub app.

    Feature Details
    Taskbar settings roaming Roaming of taskbar settings is no longer being developed and we plan to disable this capability in a future release
    Wi-Fi WEP and TKIP Wi-Fi networks that are secured with passwords using older WEP and TKIP protocols are not as secure as those secured with new protocols such as WPA, WPA2, and soon WPA3. In this release a warning message will appear when connecting to Wi-Fi networks secured with WEP or TKIP, which are not as secure as those using WPA2 or WPA3. In a future release, any connection to a Wi-Fi network using these old ciphers will be disallowed. Wi-Fi routers should be updated to use AES ciphers, available with WPA2 or WPA3.
    Windows To Go Windows To Go is no longer being developed.

    The feature does not support feature updates and therefore does not enable you to stay current. It also requires a specific type of USB that is no longer supported by many OEMs.
    Print 3D app Going forward, 3D Builder is the recommended 3D printing app. To 3D print objects on new Windows devices, customers must first install 3D Builder from the Store.

    Hey Nick,

    Deprecated means that it is no longer supported or recommended, but still in use only for historical purposes. It may be removed in the future.

    Depreciated means the monetary value of something has decreased over time. E.g., cars typically depreciate in value.

    I expect if it gets removed you will probably still be able to DIY it.

    Just think of the tutorials offering financial advice if you were in that business..! Would be worth a fortune..

    "If intertemporal externalities strongly affect future production possibilities and the externalities depreciate quickly, short-term monetary shocks can have long-term real effects."
    Found this cited to illustrate the use of depreciation...
    DEPRECIATE | meaning in the Cambridge English Dictionary
    Hmmm.....
