Microsoft wants us to only install apps on Windows 10 from the Windows Store

Windows Store

Microsoft continues to work on the development of Windows 10, and with the arrival of the latest update, available through the ring of rapid updates of the operating system, we can see a novelty that makes us very clear what those of Redmond are looking for. And is that soon we will begin to have enough difficulties to install applications from outside the Windows Store or what is the same the official Windows 10 application store.

This new option will come from the hand of the Windows 10 Creators Update, and without a doubt it will not like too many users and it is that with it Microsoft will look a lot, perhaps too much like Apple, wanting to give the Windows Store an excessive role as the that has the App Store.

Those of us who are regular users of any of the Windows versions We usually use the Windows Store little or nothing, getting most of the applications or programs by other means. Microsoft wants to boost its application store, undoubtedly achieving interesting benefits with it, but also complicating the day-to-day life of Windows 10 users.

This will also have its advantages and is that by being able to install only the applications that we find in the Windows Store, we will be far from being able to download malicious applications, for example. Of course, we can also forget about being able to install pirated software, at least in a legal way in the eyes of Microsoft.

Do you think Microsoft is right with the decision to force Windows 10 users to install applications only from the Windows Store?.

    There are times when the reports that appear in this "news windows" border on the yellowish, not to say ridiculous. Is it questionable that Microsoft, for the sake of the protection of its users, wants to channel the obtaining of applications through the Microsoft Store? Personally, all the applications that I have installed on my PC, my Surface 4 Pro and my Lumia 950XL I have obtained in the Microsoft Store, and I have not had any problems and I feel more secure doing it. In fact, I have never had a problem with any application downloaded from that source.
