The Anniversary Update reinstalls bundled apps you removed

According to users’ reports, Microsoft messed it up again: the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is reinstalling some of the bundled applications you uninstalled from your computer. We’re not sure if this is a mistake or is something that Microsoft has intentionally done.

Many users who wasted their time removing bundled applications have noticed they are mysteriously returning after installing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. We agree that it is quite easy to remove unwanted applications from your computer, but this doesn’t mean you should do that again, if you’ve already uninstalled them.

Now the question is: will this happen on every Windows 10 big update that Microsoft will release in the future? Hopefully, the company will fix this problem and it won’t allow unwanted applications to return on your computer.

If Microsoft brings new applications via a major update, we agree that those applications should be installed on your computer, as there are high chances that you want to test them out. However, if you’ve already removed an application, this means you don’t want it on your computer and the developers should find a way not to install it back when a new update is released.

When a new major update is released, Windows could display a pop-up window offering you the option to select only the bundled applications you want to install on your computer. In this manner, you can actually control what apps are being installed on your system.

What are your thoughts about the Windows 10 Anniversary Update? Did you notice any bundled applications being reinstalled on your computer after installing the latest Windows version?
