Microsoft says it was invoved in the process of pinning Office web shortcuts to the Start Menu since May 2019. The ‘forced update' installs Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook web-based apps. These forced installed are the shortcuts to the web version of the Office that can be accessed through any browser. However, these forced installs are not the full version of Microsoft Office. This will open a web-version of the app where sign in with Microsoft account to gain access is needed.
