    Features and functionality removed in Windows 10 21H1

    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. The list below is subject to change and might not include every affected feature or functionality.

    Feature Details and mitigation
    XDDM-based remote display driver Support for Windows 2000 Display Driver Model (XDDM) based remote display drivers is removed in this release. Independent Software Vendors that use an XDDM-based remote display driver should plan a migration to the WDDM driver model. For more information on implementing remote display indirect display driver, see Updates for IddCx versions 1.4 and later.
    Microsoft Edge The legacy version of Microsoft Edge is no longer supported after March 9th, 2021. For more information, see End of support reminder for Microsoft Edge Legacy and Microsoft Edge Legacy desktop application support ends today.


    Features no longer being developed (deprecated) in Windows 10 21H1

    Feature Details and mitigation
    Internet Explorer (IE) 11 The IE11 desktop application will end support for certain operating systems starting June 15, 2022. For more information, see Internet Explorer 11.
    Personalization roaming Roaming of Personalization settings (including wallpaper, slideshow, accent colors, and lock screen images) is no longer being developed and might be removed in a future release.
    Windows Management Instrumentation Command line (WMIC) tool. The WMIC tool is deprecated in Windows 10, version 21H1 and the 21H1 semi-annual channel release of Windows Server. This tool is superseded by Windows PowerShell for WMI. Note: This deprecation only applies to the command-line management tool. WMI itself is not affected.

    This is the most important aspect of this announcement. From the MS links:

    Microsoft Edge Legacy desktop application support officially ends, and it will no longer receive future security updates.

    Notepad and Paint as well, they turned them into buggy store apps, currently looking for a replacement.

    Hi,
    I'm using my win-7 versions of paint and snipping tool on 10
    Haven't noticed anything different for notepad but I don't use 10 that much either.

    Windows 10 feature update makes Notepad a separate Store app

    If you can not even open txt, because of million OS dependencies, that is just wrong.

    Hi,
    Same happened with newer snipping tool and 3dpaint were added
    All I needed was a folder with copies of paint and snipping tool along with en-US folder off win-7 and they work now.
    Wonder if notepad would too ?
