Microsoft store pinned to the taskbar after last update

Windows just forced another update on me today.

After the update I now have a bright green shopping bag icon pointing to the windows store and it is pinned to my taskbar.  Very in your face visible.  Kind of makes you want to upload your program there.

Did anybody else get this update?

What version of Windows are you using?  I haven't seen anything like that so far...

Have you seen how much garbage there is in the Windows Store? A skip would be a more appropriate icon.

It's there since a very long time, part of the latest Windows 8.1 Update (KB 2919355). The last update for Windows 8.1 before Windows 10.

The Windows Store icon is displayed in the taskbar in Windows 10,
