During the Windows event, one of Microsoft’s biggest shocks was the fully revamped Microsoft Store experience. Microsoft has loosened the limits on programs that may be submitted to the Windows 11 app store. As a result, firms like Zoom and Adobe have begun to offer full-fledged desktop programs through the Microsoft Store.
The Microsoft Store has become more user and developer-friendly with Windows 10. The store is being redesigned for consumers, making it easier to download big apps and games to your smartphone. Similarly, Microsoft has updated the store’s homepage to make it easier to locate their apps.
Instead of searching Google or Bing for your favorite programs, you’ll be able to locate them in the new Microsoft Store. Several well-known apps are now accessible in the new shop, as we previously reported.
Adobe’s free PDF viewer was also added to the Microsoft Store earlier today. Adobe is a full-desktop software, so it isn’t the lightest download, but it has all capabilities and Microsoft doesn’t modify the app’s functionality.
If you currently use other Adobe products, you may sync your actions by connecting the Acrobat Reader DC store version to the company’s storage cloud.
Adobe Acrobat Reader DC on the Microsoft Store is a straightforward transfer of the program that is currently accessible on the company’s website. It’s free, and it can open several big files. You can also annotate documents in this application using the app’s built-in controls or Windows 11’s inking function without fear of it crashing.
From Win32 to web apps, developers have embraced Microsoft’s increasing emphasis on the Windows Store. Zoom, OBS Studio, Canva, TikTok, and the online software ClimChamp, in addition to Adobe, are accessible in the Microsoft Store.
Canva has stated that when Windows 11 is released, its desktop software will be accessible for download. ClimChamp’s online app, on the other hand, is now open to everyone.
Windows 11 is scheduled to be released in October, but a larger deployment is not expected until early next year. Fortunately, Microsoft has previously said that the new store will not be limited to Windows 11 and that these programs will be available to Windows 10 users later this year.
