Microsoft Might Stop Forcing Candy Crush Saga on All Windows 10 Users

One of the biggest changes in the May 2019 Update launching next month might take place under the hood.

 
Microsoft may no longer force Candy Crush Saga (and other bloatware) on everyone clean-installing Windows 10, as discovered recently on Twitter.

If you’re one of the early Windows 10 adopters, you probably know that bloatware has been one of the biggest annoyances of the operating system, especially because Microsoft used to re-install the unwanted apps with OS feature updates.

While it was possible to remove each of these apps, including Candy Crush Saga, simply getting them by default was frustrating and surprising at the same time as Microsoft pushed Windows 10 as a productivity platform.

But this whole struggle could finally come to an end, as Microsoft might stop pre-installing bloatware on Windows 10 Home.Who gets it and who doesn’t?The change was spotted in the upcoming Windows 10 May 2019 Update, but what’s very important to note is that it doesn’t seem to happen on all devices. Some users are still getting the unwanted apps, so it’s unknown at this point how Microsoft decides who’s lucky and who is not.

Meanwhile, Microsoft does appear to have a change of mind over unwanted apps in Windows 10. The May 2019 Update allows users to remove more unwanted apps from the operating system, all thanks to what the company describes as a streamlined user experience based on user feedback.

“This all began with a popular request from Insiders: expand the ability to remove pre-installed apps from Start. In 19H1, we more than doubled the number of pre-installed apps that can be removed,” the company explains in a recent postregarding the changes coming to the Windows 10 Start menu.

The May 2019 Update will go live for everyone next month, so it remains to be seen how many of us would still get Candy Crush Saga pre-installed.
