Microsoft has announced that it will be killing off the legacy troubleshooters in Windows 11. This means that the old troubleshooters that were available in Windows 10 will no longer be supported in Windows 11.
Microsoft will begin redirecting some of the Windows 11’s troubleshooters to the Get Help platform
According to Microsoft’s support document, the company would be retiring legacy troubleshooters in Windows 11. These built-in tools have helped users diagnose and fix common Windows problems since their arrival in Windows 7 back in 2009. Now, the company has started the process of removing these troubleshooters.
The retirement of these troubleshooters is part of Microsoft’s move to a new troubleshooting platform called “Get Help”. Get Help is a cloud-based platform that provides users with access to a wider range of troubleshooting tools and resources.
“Get Help” is a powerful tool that can help users troubleshoot problems with Microsoft products and services. It is more comprehensive and effective than legacy troubleshooters, and it is constantly being updated with new features and capabilities.
Here are some of the benefits of using the Get Help app:
- It is a more modern and comprehensive troubleshooting experience.
- It offers a wider range of tools and resources.
- It is easier to use and navigate.
- It is more up-to-date with the latest Windows 11 features.
The retirement of the legacy troubleshooters will take place over the next three years. In 2023, Microsoft will begin redirecting some of the troubleshooters to the “Get Help” platform. In 2024, Microsoft will remove the rest of the troubleshooters from devices running the next release of Windows 11. And in 2025, Microsoft will remove the MSDT platform altogether.
For users who are having a problem with their Windows 11 computer, I recommend using the “Get Help” app to troubleshoot the issue. It is a more modern and comprehensive troubleshooting experience that can help you fix your problem quickly and easily.
