MICROSOFT appears to reinstall a slew of bundled Windows 10 apps alongside its latest update – regardless of whether or not you’ve previously deleted the software.
Windows 10 Anniversary Update is quite a hefty upgrade.
It includes a number of new features, including Windows Ink, which lets users screenshot at the touch of a button.
Cortana also gets some new capabilities, and Microsoft has allowed third-party web apps and services to tap into its ‘Windows Hello’ functionality.
However users have criticised that Microsoft is reinstalling a number of its bundled apps – after users had purposely removed them.
It is unclear whether this is an intentional decision to override user’s preferences, or whether it is a glitch in the upgrade process.
Windows 10 users will now have to remove their installed apps again, eliminating any unwanted software in an effort to free-up some additional space.
Windows 10 sends allot of usage data back to Microsoft, from what apps users are accessing to how often they are using them.
Allowing virtual assistant Cortana – who can set reminders, launch web searches, order a taxi, track flight information and more – surges the amount of data sent to Microsoft in a bid to make their services better and more streamlined. But how long are Microsoft going to do this before they lose customers?
