Microsoft Office PWAs Installing Without Consent on Windows 10 Is Partly a Bug
Earlier this month, a number of Windows 10 users started noticing that Microsoft Office PWAs were silently installed on their devices, all without their consent.
These Office apps, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, launched in Microsoft Edge and were pinned to the Start menu.
Needless to say, while users could manually uninstall all PWAs installed without authorization, many criticized the company for forcing Office on them, especially because the whole blunder reportedly occurred on devices where the desktop productivity suite wasn’t installed.
This explains why I haven’t received these PWAs on my devices, as I do have an Office 365 subscription and all Office apps are already installed on the device.
