I had a look at the export of the list of apps on my PC.
Here some Feedback:
The column "solution" shows she recommended version is a very unreadable format:
Solution: "10205005115", Recommended Version: "102.0.5005.115"
This should be enhanced.
The column "Solution" is only filled for "Insecure" apps, the column "Recommended Version" is filled for all apps, so IMHO the column "Solution" can be deleted.
The column "Recommended Version" is also filled, when the recommended version is already installed (so both columns show the same values).
This is not very helpful, IMHO the column "Recommended Version" should ONLY be filled, if the recommended version is DIFFERENT to the installed version.
In this article there is an interesting feature, called Restore Apps.
To make it easier for customers to transition to their new PCs quickly and seamlessly, we will soon test a new feature in the Windows Insider channel that helps customers automatically restore their apps, previously installed from the Microsoft Store, to their new Windows device.
So, when users reinstall Windows or get a new system, all their Windows Store apps can be installed with one click.
This makes it very comfortable for users.
I searched for some of my apps in the Window store and indeed, I found many of them:
Epic Games Store
Microsoft Power Automate
Visual Studio Code
Visual Studio Community 2019
Visual Studio Community 2022
These popular apps are also available in the Window store:
It seems like more and more apps are also available in the Windows Store.
Users have the following advantages:
it is very easy to download and install these apps
the apps are automatically updated
the apps are linked with my Microsoft account, so I can easily install them on a second system too
when I reinstall my system, I can install all apps with one click
So more and more users will install ttheir apps via the Microsoft Store.
@Tom Strange, I can not see it in my list of apps.
