If there’s one thing computer users hate it’s being told what applications to use or being forced to use apps they don’t want. Now there’s evidence that Microsoft is mysteriously installing Spotify with Windows 10 and Windows 11 PCs.
Some users report that the Spotify icon is showing up unbidden in the Taskbar. Such installs aren’t without precedent, either. The Microsoft Store has been known to give you apps you don’t ask for.
A bug? Hardly. This could be a security flaw. Makes you think of the time Apple forced a U2 album on all iTunes users.
I already have Spotify on all my devices, so I won’t be affected by any unwanted installations. Have you see this happen to your PC? If so, let me know in the comments.
