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



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.
