Legacy console mode in Windows 11

QuoteThe legacy console mode is now a deprecated component that Microsoft no longer updates. The company has published a new message in the official Windows documentation detailing the end of development for the legacy console mode, a special compatibility tool designed to run old command-line apps in Windows 10.

According to Microsoft, future Windows releases, such as the upcoming next-gen Windows client scheduled for 2024, will not offer the legacy console mode by default. However, Microsoft is not removing it altogether—the tool will remain available as an optional on-demand feature installable using the DISM /add-Capability command.


To hell with any Windows > 7! (At least for me; people in the future will just have to suffer, I guess.)
Assembly language programming should be fun. That's why I do it.


Microsoft knows, what users wants, but it isn't what they want.
Those who have worked with industry, know what they want and that isn't, what MS offer.
May the source be with you


Hi Timo,

You are right, a person in the business environment knows better about the requirements.
