Microsoft just restarted my Windows 10 PC to install more unwanted apps

I walked away from my computer for dinner, writing a story for her Edge. When I went back, I couldn’t believe my eyes.

Windows 10 restarted my computer without permission – yet another mandatory OS update to install on my solid state drive.

Crazy part: When my machine finishes rebooting, it’s now included I write about a certain thing Before I was rudely interrupted. Microsoft has installed unwanted, unwanted web application versions of Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook on my computer.

Seriously, the story you are reading right now started as a news post of this Others People.

Well, not as bad as my entire computer screen was taken over by an unwanted microphone from Microsoft .ft Edge. It was really enormous.

No, at the moment Microsoft .ft is just stripping unwanted web applications on my PC – and will use my Windows 10 Start menu as a free advertising space. Did I mention that the icons for MicroFit OfficeFish applications magically appeared in my Start menu, even though I’ve never installed Office once on this computer?

My new start menu contains shortcuts to micro .ft applications that I have never installed.

By the way, there are no completely free copies of Office fees. These are just shortcuts to the web version that you could already access in any web browser of your choice, which is twice as much as an advertisement to pay for a more fully featured copy.

Because they are web applications, it’s not like they take up any space on my computer, and I don’t really mind them in my Start menu. It’s in the least offensive bluetooth I’ve seen, and I don’t really look at the Start menu in any way – my taskbar and search bar are long enough for me.

However, it’s the latest proof that Microsoft Microsoft Ft doesn’t respect your ownership of your own PC, that Microsoft Ft has to install anything it likes in Windows Update and is a recent example, including Blu Blo Tware, and a recent example of caring more about Microsoft Ft when Windows A few people are at the bottom of what could suddenly lose their function when the PC shuts down. Luckily, I didn’t lose any work today, but my friend recently did:

Microsoft thinks our computers are a place of free advertising, a place where it can selfishly promote its other products – even though they were told in the 90’s that it’s not okay to bundle a web browser. Now, they’re bundling a browser that you can’t uninstall, and a bunch of PWA web applications that launch in the same browser. (Yes, even if you set a different browser by default, they still fire the same.)

As I have argued before, decisions like these make one less Good The argument is that microsoft .ft has really mandatory updates – that they provide important security patches that keep the computer (yours and others) safe. That’s the hardest argument when the most visible difference after a new update is trying to make more money!

Like ZDNet Mary Joe Foley, a reporter for Microsoft Microsoft .ft, noted that some Windows insiders do not have such an experiment. I do not sign up with the Windows Insider program on this PC. The company has not yet responded to Foley’s requests for comment, but let’s see if that changes in the coming weeks.
