• Fall Creators Update will remove some Windows features

    Microsoft have recently updated KB4034825 (Last Review: Jul 21, 2017 – Revision: 19), showing several items that will be either removed or deprecated in the Fall (Autumn) Creators Update.

    The following features and functionalities in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update are either removed from the product in the current release (“Removed”) or are not in active development and might be removed in future releases (“Deprecated”).

    This list is intended to help customers consider these removals and deprecations for their own planning. The list is subject to change and may not include every deprecated feature or functionality.

    The list includes EMET, Outlook Express & 3D Builder app being removed, and Paint, Powershell 2 & System Image Backup being deprecated. Some of the items slated for removal/deprecation are for security reasons, which makes perfect sense, but it would be hard to imagine system image backups not being missed by those that still use them.

    The full list is available here, and Martin Brinkmann has a good write-up on ghacks.net
