Build 19043.1165 disables Windows Timeline sync

Windows 10’s Timeline feature is losing the ability to sync
across different devices with today’s update. If you use
Windows Timeline, today’s cumulative update will stop syncing
your activity history across your different devices via your
Microsoft account.

For those unaware, Timeline was introduced with the Windows 10
April 2018 Update and it allows users to track back through
their desktop activity.

The Timeline view remains accessible in the operating system,
but Windows 10 users can no longer sync their activities.
However, enterprise customers with Azure Active Directory (AAD)
business can still use the syncing feature with Timeline.

On Windows 11, Microsoft has entirely disabled the Timeline
feature, but it will continue to work on Windows 10 for local
activities.
