    Friendly Dates pulled from Windows 10 May 2019 Update


    Microsoft released a new build for the next but one release of Windows 10, Windows 20H1. The new release brings the preview release to build 18890 and while it really should not affect Windows 10 version 1903, it does in this case.

    Microsoft revealed that Friendly Dates won't make it into the May 2019 Update for Windows 10. The feature will be removed from Insider builds and anyone using an Insider build should see it go away soon.

    Friendly Dates, also known as dates in conversational format, was added to preview builds of Windows 10 version 1903 in December 2018.

    File Explorer, Windows Explorer in Windows 10, displays the date and time of a file by default when you open any directory in the file manager.

    The format is DD/MM/YYYY HH:MM; it applies to all date columns including date modified or date created.

    Note: You can add and remove headers from File Explorer to display additional date columns or remove existing ones.

    Friendly Dates changed a date like 02/12/2018 09:30 to December 2, 2018, or even just "yesterday at 09:30, or "just now".

    Friendly dates were designed to improve the readability of time-based information in File Explorer; this seems to have backfired as Microsoft pulled the feature.

    One of the issue that users experienced with friendly dates was that the new formats were different. Instead of sticking to a single format, Date Time, friendly dates would use different time formats such as "4 hours ago", yesterday at 09:04", November 29, or November 29, 2018. Sorting worked as expected though.

    Microsoft did not reveal why it decided to pull friendly dates from Windows 10 version 1903. It is also unclear if the feature will come back at a later point in time.

    I think it is unlikely that this is going to happen considering that the company removed the feature from Windows 10 version 2003 Insider Builds as well. If it wanted to delay a release, it could have kept the feature in the preview builds and just remove it from the upcoming May 2019 Update.

    Friendly Dates is the second feature that Microsoft won't release any time soon. Sets, a feature to combine multiple application windows in a single container won't be released in Windows 10 version 1903 either.

    Office 2019

    Only supported on Win10. Sorry, 8.1 users, only 4 years old, gotta go.

    Microsoft Office 2019 will only work on Windows 10

    Spoiler Office 2019
    Last year at Ignite, we announced Office 2019 – the next perpetual version of Office that includes apps (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, and Skype for Business) and servers (including Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business). Today we’re pleased to share the following updates:

    • Office 2019 will ship in H2 of 2018. Previews of the new apps and servers will start shipping in the second quarter of 2018.
    • Office 2019 apps will be supported on:
      • Any supported Windows 10 SAC release
      • Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018
      • The next LTSC release of Windows Server
    • The Office 2019 client apps will be released with Click-to-Run installation technology only. We will not provide MSI as a deployment methodology for Office 2019 clients. We will continue to provide MSI for Office Server products.

    Microsoft Office 2019 Will Run on Windows 10, and Only Windows 10

    Windows 7 went out of mainstream support on Jan 15, 2015.
    Windows 8.1 went out of mainstream support on Jan 9, 2018.
    And I doubt anyone on Windows 8.1 would mind too much upgrading to Windows 10. I definitely would not *Big Grin Friendly Dates pulled from Windows 10 May 2019 Update :D

    They are supporting only Windowses currently in mainstream support. For Windows 10, they seem to have moved the support model to the bi-annual updates being supported for 2 years and more recently 1.5 years.

    Has it been said if Office 2019 will actually work on Windows 7/8.1? Supported and actually working can be different things. Kind of like the "on supported hardware" comment above.
