How to Find Apps, Games, and More on the Windows Store

The Windows Store is a digital distribution platform run by Microsoft. It was initially developed as an app store for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 to distribute Universal Windows Platform applications. However, it has grown to include hardware, software, and extensions. You can check out our guide to finding apps, games, and more to get started.

Apps

Microsoft’s Windows Store is a trove of fake apps and junk. But the latest batch of apps is a step in the right direction. Microsoft has partnered with developers to add all kinds of apps. You can use any app framework to make an app for the Microsoft Store. But some apps allow you to pirate and are just junk.

Windows Store apps also help you to use desktop software. For instance, you can create a report with selected data from a spreadsheet and display the summary in an app.

Games

The Microsoft Store is a digital distribution platform for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. It started as an app store for the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) software. But, over the years, it has expanded to include a broader range of apps. It has become a popular destination for games and other content.

The Windows Store has both free and paid games. Games with mature content are typically rated PEGI 18 or higher, and Microsoft is starting to address this issue with its Windows 10 and Xbox One games.

Hardware

The Fall Creators Update of Windows 10 will soon let you buy hardware from the Windows Store. Whether you’d like to purchase an Xbox One Media Remote or a new PC, this new Store may be just what you’re looking for. In addition to software, the new Store will also offer virtual reality hardware, IT-related tools, and gift cards.

Microsoft’s new Store will replace the Windows app with a different logo and a broader range of products. Hardware from third-party manufacturers will also be available, including smartwatches and Fitbit fitness trackers.

Extensions

You can easily download and install extensions from the Windows store using Microsoft Edge. The process is similar to downloading attachments from any other web browser. However, you will need to enable the permission to install extensions for Microsoft Edge before you can use it. To do this, you will need to use the Store’s API.

The new Microsoft Store app now features a new tab called Extensions. The bill is located next to the previous account. However, the extensions section is no longer grouped by type.

Xbox consoles

Microsoft has long maintained that the Xbox store should be treated differently than the App Store ecosystem. In the past, it has claimed that Xbox games and software purchases should only be sold on the Xbox store and that Microsoft shouldn’t have to share that revenue with Apple. Microsoft defended this business model during a court case against Apple last year. It has also hinted at opening an Xbox store.

Microsoft has also begun selling Xbox consoles through its online Store. It has also launched bundle deals so consumers can purchase more than one. For instance, Microsoft offers a bundle that includes an Xbox One, an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and a $50 GameStop gift card.

Music

The new Windows 10 operating system has brought many new features to users, including the ability to play music on tablets, the new Windows Store, and the Cortana personal assistant. It also brings many changes and fixes to music apps. Here’s a look at some of the new features in music apps.

The Windows Store now offers a variety of download options for music and videos. Users can purchase entire albums and play them whenever they want. Users can also transfer downloaded music to other devices and locations.
