    Hello.:)

    Users are no longer able to install Office directly from the Microsoft Store, and are instead being redirected to the old classic installer.

    Over the last few weeks, users attempting to download Office applications from the Microsoft Store on Windows 10 have been unable to do so, and instead, are being redirected to the Office website which would then automatically download the classic installer. Naturally, many have been frustrated with this, as downloading from the Microsoft Store directly comes with benefits such as automatic updates through the Store, the ability to choose which Office apps you want installed, and more.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Well, thankfully, most people on GBAtemp have dark arts to get Office.....though, only ~<10% of 'tempers will use Office on their PCs.

    Funnily enough, yesterday I had to use Microsoft Store to fix my Word install since no other method was working (short of a complete Office 365 reinstall).

    Microsoft being Microsoft...
