How can I drop the element mid-side nodes in Ansys 19 which was possible by looking into: mesh- details of mesh - advanced,  in previous versions of Ansys?

Click on the Mesh title in the outline in Mechanical.

In the Defaults portion is Element Order which can be set to Linear to drop mid-side nodes or to Quadratic for what used to be called mid-side nodes kept.

Why do we need to drop Element midside nodes in Explicit dynamics? Also, what will happen if we don't drop it?

Explicit solver was written to use linear elements. If you have quadratic elements you will get an error.
