At the end of May this year, Microsoft released the Windows 10 May 2020 Update and along with it updated the list of deprecated features and apps. This list has now been updated again to include the Connect app, which is no longer pre-installed on Windows 10.
Recall that the Connect application uses Miracast technology and allows you to project your computer desktop onto a TV or display wirelessly. Windows 10’s Miracast support dates back to 2015, but the Connect app never made it to its mark, largely due to more user-friendly alternatives like Chromecast.
Now, Microsoft has made the Connect app optional on Windows 10. This means it won’t install with the platform, but users will still be able to download it as an optional feature.
If you want to use Connect, then to download it, go to the “Settings” application, open the “Applications” section, select “Additional functions” and click the “Add function” item. Then, using the search, you can find the desired application and install it into the system for further use. Connect can be easily uninstalled if needed if you no longer intend to interact with it. Thus, Connect is becoming another optional application in Windows 10, the list of which is gradually expanding.
If you notice an error, select it with the mouse and press CTRL + ENTER.
