Windows 10 has left us all excited and the fact that (almost) everyone gets a free upgrade has been the best incentive users could ever get. With the Final version of the Windows 10 seeding into devices across 190 countries, it comes imperative for us to take a deeper look and check out what typical Windows feature will not make it to the Windows 10.


Demise of Windows Media Center

Windows Media Center has been the epicenter of media consumption for Windows users from more than a decade. The media center had not been receiving any attention lately and was crippled when it came to new codec supports and features. The Windows Media will be taken over by a plethora of third party players and it will be a pain for users to pick the right one.

Along with the demise of Media Center, Windows 10 will not be natively supporting DVD playback and it will also not offer support for the TV tuners. Although the missing features might not pierce someone in heart but its absence will definitely be felt by “at least” some folks.

Windows 10 will be “Heart”less

Remember the card game Hearts which used to come with all the previous copies of Windows? Well, Microsoft has decided to ditch the game and Windows 10 users will no longer be able to play Hearts from their system.

No native support for DVD Discs

Another big sacrifice Windows 10 users need to do is connected with discs. While most of us might argue that DVDs come from Jurassic era and are no more relevant, we are sure there will be a considerable chunk of people who will be using this feature frequently.

As we explained earlier, Windows 10 will not natively support DVD discs which means users have to run after third party apps to suit their requirements, sounds simple yet a tad bit inconvenient.

Forced Windows update

Windows update has been in line of fire from long for many reasons. The updates were not just a little too frequent but they also took a hell lot of time to install. That being said previous versions of Windows at least gave a choice to users on when they can install the updates as opposed to the Windows 10 which will push the updates automatically (only for the Home Users). The Enterprise editions will let the network admin control when the updates are installed, but the Home users will not be left any choice. Microsoft is probably doing so to ensure that all the users are equalized when it comes to updates to that they can handle security issues more dynamically, on the contrary automatic downloads can become an issue if the user is connected to a capped Internet connection.

In case you have still not received the Windows 10 update check out our guide on how you can force update your system to Windows 10.
