Reading list and 3D builder app won’t work after the update

Microsoft has published an official list with all features that will be removed or deprecated in the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update. Among them are old apps, features that are no longer in development, and some legacy code and features for enterprises.

Here are the features and apps that will be removed this fall:

  • 3D Builder app
  • Apndatabase.xml
  • Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET)
  • Outlook Express
  • Reader app
  • Reading List
  • Screen savers in Themes
  • Syskey.exe
  • TCP Offload Engine
  • Tile Data Layer
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM) Owner Password Management

Many of them won’t have a direct impact on the customer experience, because they have replacements. For example, Microsoft Paint has a successor called Paint3D, while the Reading list app has been integrated into the browser.

Here are the deprecated features, that Microsoft will start developing after the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update:

  • IIS 6 Management Compatibility
  • IIS Digest Authentication
  • Microsoft Paint
  • RSA/AES Encryption for IIS
  • Sync Your Settings
  • Screen savers in Themes
  • System Image Backup (SIB) Solution
  • TLS RC4 Ciphers
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM): TPM.msc and TPM Remote Management
  • Trusted Platform Module (TPM) Remote Management
  • Windows Hello for Business deployment that uses System Centre Configuration Manager
  • Windows PowerShell 2.0
