Q. I read this week that Apple has decided to bring together their mobile and desktop platforms into a single app store. Will Microsoft being doing this too?
A. Actually, Microsoft laid the groundwork for this idea in 2015 with what was then called the Windows Store. The concept is the same: Give developers the tools to write one set of code and maximize the platforms they can target with that code, including the HoloLens, mobile devices, laptops, desktops, and the massive Surface Hub.
Although this approach has not always enjoyed tremendous success, it is starting to gain a foothold and the results of that are showing up in the Microsoft Store with popular apps making their way onto the ecosystem of Windows 10 devices.
Today I wanted to share some tips with you for managing apps on your Windows 10 device because there are ways to deal with any challenges that might crop up with some of these apps as you use different hardware.
Everything app related on Windows 10 begins in the Microsoft Store.
