    Apps that have updates available will show a number in the main Start Screen Store Tile, and when in the store in the upper, right corner you will see Updates (X) with the X showing the same number as that presented in the Tile. If you click on the Updates link it will go to the Updates page.

    If you do not see this Updates notice, then I suspect there are no updates available.

    There is a recent update to Skype (installed it this morning). To be able to apply it, do as Medico explained.

    If you wish to perform a manual check for app updates, open the store, view the charms (hover in upper or lower right corner or Win+C) , click on "settings", click on "app updates", click on "check for updates".
