Windows 10 May 2021 Update was unleashed a short time ago, and just as usual, with every new update, Microsoft incorporates new features, but not many in this case. They still, however, pull out functionality that was previously included in the OS.

To be precise, Microsoft lists both types of discontinued features – those that have been shelved and are no longer actively created – and those that are being fully phased out of Windows 10.

In the May 2021 update to Windows 10, PCs that use several Windows Hello peripherals will be able to set a default computer.

Here is a complete list of all that’s fresh with the update. The information listed below will be updated as Microsoft publishes the official release notes.

  • Support for Windows Hello Multifactor Authentication (Windows Hello Multifactor Authentication) sets the default to the external camera if both external and internal Windows Hello cameras are present.
  • Improvements to the Windows Defender Application Guard, including the use of optimized document opening times.
  • Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Group Policy Service (GPSVC) performance is being improved to support remote work scenarios.
  • This is designed to remove the legacy altogether Microsoft Edge desktop application that is unsupported and instal the new Microsoft Edge.
  • Additionally, the update brings a handful of new features and a variety of bug fixes and enhancements.

Aside from that, Microsoft has discontinued a few features, which means that the company can no longer operate on them, and they could be withdrawn in the future.

The list contains two features: personalization roaming and a command line for Windows Management Instrumentation. Windows PowerShell will replace the above, and the deprecation only applies to the command-line control tool.

There are several ways to obtain the Windows 10 May 2021 Update. For instance, you can use the Windows 10 Settings app, the Media Creation Tool, or the Upgrade Assistant. A gradual rollout will take place, and it is possible that you will not see the new features introduced by this update because Windows Update does not consistently deliver the updates immediately.

Microsoft will likely distribute the Windows 10 May 2021 Update in several stages to minimize the risk of significant problems. The Media Creation and Upgrade Assistant tools are two different options to enable users to reinstall the update manually.
