Microsoft has decided to drop Cortana, Skype or even OneNote for Windows 11

Microsoft has decided to drop Cortana, Skype or even OneNote for Windows 11

New version of Windows Presented by Microsoft on Thursday evening Promises many changes. The computer agent does not hesitate to fully review its position in a full series of subjects, especially with regard to its policy in its application store. Microsoft has also announced that many features will be missing. Back to these big ones
Windows 11.

Cordana, Virtual Assistant

This is only a half-surprise as Microsoft has already retired its assistant on several platforms. Cordana, Sree’s rival has never been able to win the hearts of users. This is undoubtedly one of the lowest features of Windows. Its complete departure from the Windows ecosystem is therefore not surprising. Unfortunately for some users who found this useful, Cordana will not be replaced by another digital assistant.

Les Live-Tiles

Another bad thing is missing: live-tiles or “animated tiles”, these small animated squares that the user can customize in the Windows menu to create shortcuts to contacts, applications or documents. With Windows 11, Microsoft will return to a more sober menu. The “Animated Tiles” will be replaced by a new panel that integrates widgets that the user can display by swiping from left to right on his screen. Tiles first appeared with Windows 8, initially intended to replace the Windows interface on tablets and touch devices.

Skype

No, Skype will not disappear completely with Windows 11. The mail service will continue, but the application will no longer be pre-installed on the system, thus being replaced Microsoft teams. Logical, that would give the software popularity. Teams are now accessible to everyone, and this is not just a tool reserved for professionals. However, those who wish can re-download the app from the Windows Store. However, his days seem to be numbered.

3D paint

This is one of the stellar features of Windows 10. Paint 3D is a simple tool for designing 3D models and drawings. This tool was intended for the general public and relied on the success of 3D printing in particular. However, this sector has not been taken up. As a result, Paint 3D is no longer integrated into Windows. However, the software can always be retrieved individually.

OneNote

Surprisingly, however, Microsoft’s decision to remove OneNote from Windows 11 has led to widespread use of the Office-integrated note-taking application. However, Microsoft wants to sideline it. The good news is that the software is still available for download from the Microsoft Store.
