Microsoft forces O365 users to use Bing in Chrome
The whole thing is to be implemented in mid-February. The following countries are affected:
- United Kingdom
- United States
Anyone installing or updating Office 365 ProPlus can exclude the Bing app from the outset.
With the parameter:
<Add OfficeClientEdition = "64" Channel = "Monthly">Product ID = ”O365ProPlusRetail”>
<Language ID = "en-us" />
<ExcludeApp ID = ”Bing” />
The latest version of the Customization Tool, currently 16.0.12325.20276, should always be used.
In existing installations, this can be implemented via a group policy or by uninstalling the corresponding DefaultPack.
