That Windows 10 Folder You’ve Never Needed is Finally Going Away

Microsoft is known for a lot of things but one thing in particular that people don’t like about it is the fact that the company’s operating systems often have a lot of unnecessary things in them. One folder that is unique to Windows 10 that seems to be confusing quite a few people is the 3D objects folder. It is a relic from the early days of Windows 10 when Microsoft was trying to promote 3D based apps such as Paint 3D as well as Remix 3D because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up diversifying the offerings Microsoft could make available to its various customers.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that no one really ended up using these apps and the fact that they didn’t catch on meant that the 3D objects folder remained more or less useless. Users are often frustrated by the fact that they can’t even delete the folder since it is a systems file and you can’t delete those without wreaking havoc in the OS.

The good news is that Microsoft is finally getting rid of the folder once and for all. While the folder doesn’t really do all that much harm, it’s certainly not necessary either and most users will be glad that they are not going to have to look at it anymore. We are entering an era where utilitarianism is becoming the name of the game, and Microsoft was long overdue the realization that this was the case. The next update for Microsoft called 21H1 will not have this folder anymore, and since Remix 3D has been discontinued and no one uses Paint 3D anyway this will be a step in the right direction.
