Installed Office 2016 Store App on a Non Windows 10 S Machine


This week, I did a clean refresh of my Windows 10 desktop machine. I then went to the Windows Store to find my library and install any of the store apps that I still wanted.

I noticed that Word 2016, Excel 2016, Powerpoint 2016, Outlook 2016, Publisher 2016 and Access 2016 were available for me to install. So I did, and they work.

I currently have an Office 365 Home subscription and I am not running an insider build of Windows 20 Pro at the moment. Has anyone else had a similar experience? It was my understanding that these apps were limited to Windows 10 S, Office 365 Personal and the latest insider build.
