According to EU law, the latest version of Windows will receive an important update next year, with which we will be able to delete practically anything we want.

A small but important update to Windows 11 will be released at the beginning of 2024, around February-March: an update package called Moment 5 will primarily adapt the operating system to the EU's Digital Markets (DMA) legislation.

But what does this bring in practice? Well, in addition to others, greater freedom of decision-making: we will be able to delete many pre-installed programs, which until now have only taken up space, even though we have never used them.

Among other things, this includes the Edge browser, the camera, Cortana, Photos, or even Bing News. Windows Central.

Among the new features is that, as expected, Bing can be replaced by another search engine, such as Google, in the search field on the taskbar.

According to the portal, Moment 5 will arrive with a cumulative update, the installation of which is inevitable sooner or later – because Microsoft will force it to be installed over time. However, Moment 5 will require Windows 11 23H2, so it is recommended to install the latest version of Windows until then.

However, it should be noted that the above modifications are not generic, they are designed by Microsoft exclusively for EU users in accordance with the DMA. However, this will be the first time that we will be able to permanently delete programs from the computer that we have had to put up with until now.
