Have you recently installed the latest Windows10 update and are wondering where your favorite app has gone? Question no more! Microsoft’s latest Windows10 update decides whether or not the applications you’ve installed are necessary to your everyday computing. In a recent Article, users were shocked to learn Windows will determine what’s relevant on your computer. The apps they find “outdated” or “incompatible” will be removed from your system.

While some might not notice a difference, some are finding their essential business tools/programs no longer available without any prior notification. Do you find this as intrusive as we do?
