    Can an app be used in various user accounts?

    I logged on as administrator using my Microsoft password and then bought an app. As far as I can tell, it's not available on my standard account, which I use almost all the time. Is there a way to share an app between accounts?

    Cheers,

    Will

    From your standard account can you go to the Apps Store, sign in with the same credentials/account you used to purchase the app, and then download it again to your standard account for use?

    If you login to the Microsoft store with the account you bought the app with, you can simply reinstall the account. A right click will show two top menu options, on of which is Your apps. Choose this one and you will have access to the list of apps you bought and you can install any of them again.
