Leftovers[edit | edit source]

Timebomb[edit | edit source]

The Starter edition found within this build's Repair Content Packages (which are used by DISM /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth to repair an existing Windows installation) includes a timebomb within its product policies that is set to expire on 15 January 2013 despite being compiled under a retail/production configuration.

Games Explorer[edit | edit source]

One of the most well known leftovers in Windows 8 is the Games Explorer from Windows Vista and 7. It can be accessed by running shell:games (or explorer shell:games with the use of a shortcut) or through means of a third-party Start menu application. This feature and its respective class ID remained until Windows 10 April 2018 Update, after which it was completely removed in favor of the Xbox app.
