I have bridge, but never use it. I prefer to use Lightroom and I never delete photos during the import. For me it is much safer to delete unwanted photos after checking them out later by just using windows photo gallery. Adobe have a program that will allow Raw files to be viewed in Windows or apple. That way I don't throw away something that could be saved, fully or partly, later in Photoshop. I have the impression that Adobe is no longer pushing Bridge and may eventually drop it, Just my feeling. If you want a function back, it most likely will be a setting that can be reset.
I just checked my copy of Bridge 2017 and it will not even open. After the last major upgrade to 2017 for both Photoshop, Lightroom and Bridge, Photoshop would not open. I spent a few hours (three sessions) with Adobe support (In India) trying to find the problem. They eventually found the problem (Adobe's problem) and now they only work when I 'run as Administrator'. This does not work with Bridge. This is a major problem according to the reports from users on the Adobe forum, who are very frustrated. Apple users are also affected. For Bridge, I don't know or care.
PS. Bridge did open after I had posted this reply. That was the problem with Photoshop, it would open then freeze for 5 minutes then when a photo was loaded it would take seven minutes to load it. It looks like Bridge suffers from the same problem.
