Microsoft is deprecating Windows 10’s WMIC in Windows 11 now

Microsoft is no longer developing some Windows 10 features for Windows 11. It should come as no surprise since the company has added new features with each version of Windows 10 in the past, but it has also removed features occasionally. The Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line (WMIC) tool is one of the features the company no longer actively develops for Windows 10 and Windows 11. There aren’t many people who know what this tool does, so let us give you a quick rundown.

The Windows Management Interface Command, or WMIC, is a command-line tool used to execute WMI commands. In case you are wondering, the WMI command is primarily used to query information regarding the computer system, such as the computer’s name, the BIOS serial number, the Mac address, and the hard drive’s health.

WMIC command-line tool to be deprecated in Windows 11 too

One user noticed that WMIC has been removed from the latest Windows 11 Build Microsoft Windows Version 10.0.22543.1000, and tweeted about it.

Microsoft had earlier deprecated WMIC in Windows 10:

“The WMIC tool is deprecated in Windows 10, version 21H1, and the 21H1 General Availability Channel release of Windows Server. This tool is superseded by Windows PowerShell for WMI,” according to Microsoft in a post.

Deprecation applies only to Microsoft’s command-line management tool, Microsoft has clearly stated. WMI itself is not affected.

WMIC has long been considered a security issue by some, so they’ll be glad it’s gone, never to return.
