Microsoft continues to get rid of “excess” in Windows 10

Published

on

Microsoft continues to clean up “unnecessary” applications in the Windows 10 operating system, which have not yet gained popularity among users.

In March, Paint 3D and 3D Viewer applications disappeared in test builds from Windows 10. And in a fresh build available to members of the Windows 10 Insider program through the Dev Channel, the company has begun to get rid of features like Windows 10 Timeline.

The Timeline feature was launched in a major Windows 10 April 2018 Update. Then the company described the function as follows:

“Timeline makes it easy to find what’s important to you on any of your devices. Timeline allows you to revisit past activities on any of your devices, so you can simply resume them as if you weren’t interrupted. Therefore, if you are looking for a specific document, image or video that you worked on yesterday or a week ago, using Timeline you can easily find what you are looking for. By opening the Timeline in Windows 10 on your PC, you can even go back to what you did on your iOS or Android device. ”

In fact, the function allows you to quickly find files or sites that the user has opened in the last 30 days, with synchronization between devices. However, many do not even know that such a function exists in Windows 10, but use the built-in capabilities of applications – browsing history in the browser, recent files in Office and OneDrive applications, and so on.

Last November, the Timeline section was removed from the Microsoft Launcher preview for Android. In a new build of Windows 10, it is reported that Timeline data can no longer be downloaded from Windows 10 computers, therefore, the user’s activity history will become unavailable on other devices.

Microsoft continues to develop the idea of ​​combining Windows and Android. Recently, the company announced the release of an update to the Windows Subsystem for Android subsystem for its current OS.

Even Windows 11 has already been updated to Android 12.1.  Microsoft has updated the subsystem Windows Subsystem for Android

One of the main innovations is the transition to Android 12.1 (12L). The current public version is based on Android 11. Initially, the update is only available through the Dev Channel. When it will become available to everyone is still unclear.

Microsoft notes that updating to Android 12.1 may result in some apps not running. She does not specify which ones, but it probably refers to some old programs.

The update also strengthens the integration of Android into Windows. For example, pop-up messages are first displayed as Windows notifications. The taskbar now shows if an Android app is accessing your microphone or location.

The company also states that Android apps should work better after waking the computer from standby. Instead of restarting, they should just resume where they left off.
