Microsoft will continue to add new features and services to Windows, just as Microsoft will remove or discard outdated services and features.

In September, Microsoft announced that it would remove the WordPad feature, and not long ago, the preview system also removed its own mapping and film and television apps.

Recently Microsoft announced the abandonment of three more Windows services from ldquo; & rdquo; with a long history. _

Computer Browser is a service introduced by Windows 2003. The content displayed by ldquo; Network neighbor & rdquo; comes from this service, including Windows-based domains, workgroup computers, and other network devices using NetBIOS protocol.

Microsoft thought the service was now outdated and insecure, so it decided to disable Computer Browser.

Webclient (WebDAV) service was first introduced in Windows Vista, which mainly provides the basic functions of communication between devices and HTTP Server. The current Windows system will no longer enable this service by default.

The last one is Remote Mailslots.The last one is Remote Mailslots.It has a history of at least 30 years.

Microsoft believes that it is now an outdated, simple, unreliable and insecure IPC method.Earlier this year, a Microsoft manager called it ldquo; & rdquo; 's agreement, and it's not surprising that Microsoft announced it was abandoning the service.

It should be noted that although Microsoft has announced its abandonment, it is not clear when these services will be completely removed.
