Microsoft Edge Version 124 Fixes Bug with Auto-Installed 8KB Copilot App

Microsoft Edge update resolves a bug that caused the 8KB ‘Microsoft Copilot’ app to auto-install, enhancing system stability for users.

Reports from April 27 indicate that some users noticed an 8KB “Microsoft Copilot” application was automatically installed following a system update. Microsoft has acknowledged that this occurrence was a glitch.

Microsoft officially announced that an update to the Edge browser (version 123.0.2420.65), released after March 28, might have inadvertently installed a software package known as “Microsoft chat provider for Copilot in Windows” (MSIX) on Windows devices.

However, this software does not run any code or processes, nor does it collect, analyze, or transmit any data about the device or its environment.

The recent stable release of Microsoft’s Edge browser, version 124.0.2478.67, addresses and resolves this issue. Following the update, the “Microsoft chat provider for Copilot in Windows” application will be automatically removed from the list of installed programs.

Editor’s Note: This bug impacts all versions of Windows 11 and Windows 10 22H2.
