Microsoft wants to boost installations from the Windows Store in Windows 10

Windows Store

The application store has become our daily bread when it comes to installing secure applications, that is, free of viruses, malware and others, although it is not always possible to hang a malicious application. Apple natively limits the installation of applications from the Mac App Store on Macs, an option that we can modify so that we can install apps from outside the Mac App Store of authorized developers or that allow us to install any application regardless of its origin, the least recommended option in all cases.

The latest build that Microsoft has released to the Windows 10 market, number 15042 is now available for users who want to install it. This new version brings us a novelty that may not be very funny to many users, since Microsoft complicates the steps to follow to be able to install applications from outside the Windows Store, like Gatekeeper on Macs, as I have explained above. It seems that the Redmond-based company wants users to get used to making use of the Windows Store, a secondary store and almost forgotten by many users of the Windows 10 platform.

The problem that we usually find in the Windows Store is that many of the applications available today, being universal They offer us a very different interface from the one Windows users are used to. An interface that eliminates a large number of options. A clear case of these limitations is found in the VLC application, which has nothing to do with the Windows Store version with a version available through the developer's website.

Clearly Windows also wants to enhance the use of the Windows Store, that users feel more protected when installing applications, applications that being available in the Windows store offer us the assurance that they are free of viruses, worms, malware and other computer fauna.
