Missed Features Installer for Windows 10 is the latest version of the popular application that brings back removed or altered features to Windows 10 that were part of previous versions of the operating system.

It can best be described as an all-in-one tool featuring dozens of applications, games and tools that bring back old features or modify them so that they resemble features of the past.

Packed in the 1.3 gigabyte ISO image are third-party programs such as Classic Shell, Gadgets 2.0 or the Windows Experience Index Tool, native programs from previous versions of Windows such as games, the .Net Framework 1.1 or DirectX 9.0c, and assets such as icons and conversion tools.

The whole collection is offered as an ISO image that you need to burn to disc or mount using virtual mount software like WinCDEmu or IsoDisk.

Once you have burned or mounted the ISO image, you can launch the main application from the DVD's root directory.

From there, it is a matter of selecting what you want to install on the machine running the Windows 10 operating system.

The listing can be confusing as there is no indication whether a button will run an installer right away or display a selection menu instead first.

If you pick start menu for instance, options are displayed to install Classic Shell or Start Menu Orbs on the Windows 10 machine. A click on games on the other hand starts the installer right away with no selection option.

The help file, which you display with a click on the ?-icon in the interface, lists all the programs and features that you can install on the different pages the application makes available.

While the list is helpful, it too does not indicate what gets installed directly, and what does not.

The third-page links to an advanced section which displays a variety of features that modify Windows 10 in significant ways. Here is what is offered on the page:

  1. Win Updates Disabler.
  2. Set Updates to only download from Microsoft.
  3. Enable Last Known Good Configuration.
  4. Disable Fast Startup (Hybrid boot / shutdown).
  5. Disable Administrator Shares.
  6. Disable Windows Defender.
  7. Windows 10 Deployment Tools.
  8. Convert your Admin account to Super-Admin.
  9. All Modern Apps remover (except Edge and Cortana).
  10. Advanced Components Remover (Edge, Cortana Telemetry).
  11. Set Internet Explorer 11 as default browser.

It is advised to create a backup before you run the program as it won't create a backup of its own to restore a previous system state if you run into issues after installing applications or features on the system.

Missed Features Installer is a collection of programs, features and tools that modify the Windows 10 operating system in one way or another. While it is possible to make these modifications individually by downloading the included programs or collections individually, it is the immense collection of programs and modifications that make Missed Features Installer an interesting tool especially on newly set up systems or after upgrades.

It is interesting to note that it is also available for previous versions of the Windows operating system. (via Deskmodder)

    The projects have been removed.

    Don’t forget about WIMBoot.

    Microsoft removed it in Windows 10 and replaced it with per-file compression instead of per-disk compression backed by WIM image files.

    The disk space waste due to cluster sizes causes the replacement per-file compression to consume nearly twice as much space as the previous WIM image (WIMBoot) method at the same compression level.

    It also leaves your system vulnerable to ransomware, malware, viruses, and trojans. You cannot single-click reset back to the last time you created your compressed boot image that WIMBoot uses – the single WIM file, which is absolutely unmodifiable by any kind of malware.

    Use ZIPmagic’s WIMBoot Wizard to create a WIM image of any live production Windows system, without requiring any kind of external USB drives, large downloads, or manual command lines.

    Use the System Refresh functionality built-in to the ZIPmagic WIMBoot Wizard to revert your system to exactly how it was when you had last compressed it.

    Defeat malware by building your own “OEM recovery image” as a WIM file.

    juju, I think you are experiencing paranoia, (maybe due to the “Patriot Act”). I think you need a psychological evaluation. I don’t mean to insult you! It’s only that I care! I think some integrity in regards to comments on Ghacks Newsletter is in order!

    mfi-project.weebly.com it is a new MFI’s homepage,

    because of Webs.com bandwidth limit, as they say:
    You’re over the bandwidth limit for this month. It’s great you’re getting a lot of traffic, but you need to increase your bandwidth limit with a Premium Package.
    MFI Project is based only on free software, and there are not even donations, so only totally free web services are taken into consideration.

    They even have versions for Windows 7/8.1!
    Nice one.

    There is nothing missing in Windows 10. If Windows 10 is so bad think of it as a trick to keep people confined to it. Who could be behind such release, but microsoft themselves?


    I could make some jokes about nazis and concentration camps, but maybe next time…

    1. DaveyK said on January 19, 2016 at 1:43 pm

      If there were nothing missing, it’d be impossible to create a tool which restores missing features…

      ALL versions of Windows remove some things from older versions, please get off your Windows 10 high-horse and pop your brain in gear next time.

      “let me just tell you this: numbers don’t lie. interpreters do.”

      numbers that can be altered by the person who releases them… I could say I have 5 persons using my software, yet I say I have 50 to promote my software as “good” when it’s nothing more than “crapware”

      1. juju said on January 18, 2016 at 7:36 am

        Everyone knows how to count and should be able to verify any number. If number is “released” on “just trust me basis” – it means you have some sort of con going on. At the same time you have to be aware that there are very devious cons starting with very simple arithmetics tasks.

      nazis and concentration camps, but maybe next time.

        @Gary D
        are you trying “good cop bad cop” routine And using Martin name in vain? Maybe it should be rather called “good moniker bad moniker” routine?

      2. Gary D said on January 16, 2016 at 5:19 pm

        The guy has been warned about using comments such as “CIA paedophiles” “LGBT perverts”, etc by Martin. Now, he’s moved onto nazis and concentration camps.

        Just ignore him and he will probably get fed up with not getting a response and sink back into the quagmire of his own mind.
