Microsoft is a variable. So in a telegraphic summary you can summarize what's currently happening with the Disk Cleanup tool in Windows 10. In Update 1809, the company from Redmond expanded the program with the functionality of the downloaded folder empty file, but now, after a little over a year, it's decided to delete it. Why? Because users should be safandes.
Forgive me for the loss, but it cannot be determined otherwise. Microsoft says it is deleting the Download directory's cleaning function, as users themselves have asked it in the feedback program.
As reported, there have been many cases of accidental deletion of files, since ̵
Perhaps they should delete the uninstall feature. Earlier or someone had dropped something by accident. Disk manufacturers will be happy. With the available media, demand has jumped like crazy. I give a word. Or we can just go one step further and pick up people’s keyboards. Then they will not write down anything they may later regret.
Okay, but – not to be explicitly critical – there is also a small addition of all this confusion to the Disk Cleanup tool. In particular, it will move to the Settings menu from a separate Win32 application. So the UI cleanup goes on.
Not the first and not the last time
After all, it's worth noting that this is not the first example of removing a function from Windows 10. Only, until now, Microsoft has removed it outdated solutions or meaningless existence due to market changes.
A significant example is the synchronization of SMS with Windows Mobile, deleted in 1903. Since the mobile windows are no longer supported, it makes no sense to maintain any infrastructure for them . The reason was the removal of the Groove Music Pass in 1803. Today, few remember that Microsoft also tried its hand at the music streaming sector. However, the plan failed. In 2017, the adventure was abandoned, reducing the Groove app to the role of a conventional player.
For example, Windows To Go functionality was also released, which allowed it to create a pendrive with a portable ten . So sometimes Microsoft wants to give and then choose. But he did not do so from release to release, and not for such a prosaic reason as opinions. A full list of features removed from Windows 10 in individual builds can be found at this address.
