Windows 10 v1903 Homegroups

With the fresh new Windows 10 May update came along a lot of new features. But it seems like Microsoft forgot to remove some old ones, as it’s the case with Homegroup.

Despite being removed some time ago, the option is still mentioned in some menus even in the new update. For some users, it doesn’t matter.

But for others, this is an annoying thing indicating that the company is more focused on releasing new features than polishing old ones:

There are STILL mentions of Homegroups in the menus in 1903 […] mentioning this over a year ago […] mentioning it 6 months ago when the next major update came out and didn’t fix it
They never fully removed homegroup as with many other components. [..] annoying considering the fact that some people pay for Windows!

Homegroup was removed from Windows 10 April 2018 Update

Homegroup was eliminated from Windows 10 since version 1803, but the option remained in the menu and, as it seems, it will remain there.

If you right-click on any folder and select Give access to, the Homegroup option will be there.homegroup option windows may update

As of now, there is no solution to remove it. Microsoft specified that the option will remain after the 1803 update, but clicking on it will not have any effect.

While this is true, just seeing it there seems to bother a lot of people.

It was speculated that the option remains there only after an update, and not with a clean install.

Unfortunately, this idea was quickly crushed by users who confirmed that it’s still there even after a clean install of the latest version of Windows 10.
