On June 24, US time, Microsoft announced the next version of its flagship OS, "Windows 11", and focused on introducing the redesigned start menu and widgets.
However, with the upgrade of "Windows 10", many functions and some apps that were temporarily touted will disappear. The details are shown in the document entitled "Windows 11 Specifications". Some of the changes are formal announcements of product decisions that were previously under consideration.
What is more surprising is that the "Timeline" function will be abolished. According to a support note in Microsoft's developer documentation, Windows 10 users who log in with a Microsoft account will not be able to see new activities in Timeline after July 2021. This feature seems to be completely obsolete once you upgrade to Windows 11.
The company wants to abolish "Live Tiles" and replace them with more functional widgets. The new Start menu will no longer allow you to create named groups or folders for your apps. The "People" icon will be removed from the taskbar, and developers will no longer be able to customize the taskbar in their apps. Additionally, previously you could move the taskbar to the top or sides of the screen, but that option isn't offered in the new "Dock" style either.
In addition, when logging in with a Microsoft account in Windows 11, the synchronization function that displays the same wallpaper between devices and the function that displays "Quick Status" (simple status) on the lock screen will be abolished.
"Tablet Mode" will also disappear, but new functions will be provided for devices with detachable keyboards such as "Surface Pro".
In addition, the touch keyboard layout cannot be docked/undocked on 18-inch or larger screens. The "Math Input Panel" has also been removed, replacing it with the ability to install the "Math Recognizer" app if needed. In addition, the "Snip & Sketch" app will be renamed to "Snipping Tool."
Finally, "3D Viewer", "OneNote for Windows 10", "Paint 3D", "Skype", etc. are apps that are currently part of Windows 10 but will no longer be available on new devices or with a clean install of Windows 11. be. These apps will not be removed during the upgrade and will still be available for download from the Store. The exception seems to be permanently deleted in the "Wallet" app.
