My sister gave me an old Dell Latitude E5520 64-bit. I immediately went to
programs, and noticed that Windows 365 was installed the day before. I
asked her why she installed it, and she claimed that she did not install it,
but just "created me an account" on the machine.

As someone that has Office since around 2000, I have never had this
experience. Is this something new that Microsoft has started on old Windows
7, to push 365 on people that has already paid for the full version of
Office?

Perhaps it's just a typo, but there is nothing called "Windows 365"
You undoubtedly mean Office 365.

So she's lying. I thought so. She said she did not download it, but I took
a picture of it in programs, which shows the date. She claimed to only
create a "microsoft account for me on her old laptop". She swears she did
not install it.

Time to blow the whole thing back to factory specs.

Thanks for your reply.

MS has been pushing O-365 for at least 2 years.
Those with MS cloud accounts or use the business outlook servers will be pestered
to install it. If one is not careful and hit the wrong button it will be installed.
It is on my employer's machines because we use the Outlook servers.
It is useful if you have multiple machines that need to sync data.
However, I do not use it due to being out of internet range much of the time.

You should eliminate outlook servers, the why is, because they
have all your emails on their servers. It is best to
set up a client email program, then move your email off of that server,
to another server that gives you full control. Then you can
specific server to erase your emails once you have downloaded them
into your own client. This is why, the cloud exists, as in, they
want the up on you, so to use this access on the open net, against
anyone they want to use it against. And, it is against your
own privacy yes. But that is MS for you. They are very crooked people.
As far as office, yes, they would like to push as many purchases as
they can. But more so, make the dummys use what they give them.
Microsoft is a pagan company. Same as freemasonry is pagan.

Outlook servers are really no different than your ISP. You can change the
settings to not keep a copy, then use Outlook to download them to your own
computer. But the default is aways for them to keep a copy.

That might be the answer, because it was her old business laptop, that
probably used business outlook servers. I had the old Microsoft Exchange
Server, then upgraded to 2003, then 2007. I could have set it up to access
away from base, but never really had the need to do so.

Last weekend, I had to manipulate a one page excel spreadsheet, and realized
I couldn't print from my desktop because my printer is wireless. I tried
looking for the cord, to no avail, and my laptop is on loan to my son, so I
sent it to my two Microsoft 8.1 phones. It asked me if I wanted to save to
the cloud or phone, and I said phone. Then it wanted to charge me $70 for
another year of a product that I had never used the first year on each
phone. Needless to say, I had to log in, and I have no idea what email or
password I used to set it up.

As a life long user and beta tester for Windows 95, I am looking to go to
Linux. I don't care to pay $70 for using my own printer and software to
print one sheet of paper.

Maybe not. It could very well be a preinstalled trial copy that
became available for you due to the new account being created by her.

Probably not a bad idea, but, expect to find trial copies available
once you do. Along with some other garbage you probably don't want or
need. You may want to run this after you reload the machine:
