The Office Desktop apps have begun showing up in the Store — even if you can’t download them yet.

You can already see the Office apps on the Windows Store

At the beginning of May, Microsoft announced that it would bring full-blown desktop applications to its Windows Store. This is a huge development, especially as Redmond rolls out the Windows 10 S, a variant of Windows 10 that only runs apps from the Windows Store to improve security.

Even if Microsoft only announced its intention of bringing the Office desktop apps to the Store, opening the Windows Store and searching for Word 2016 will bring the Word app up in your search results. However, you won’t be able to install it or to see the app listings. Because of this, it’s pretty certain by now that Microsoft is ahead of schedule in bring Office Desktop apps to the Windows Store.

The Office desktop app will be a great advantage for Windows 10 S. Microsoft has not yet announced the exact date on which the Office Desktop app will be available for download on the Windows Store, but we’re sure this will happen very soon.

Microsoft is trying hard to show everyone the value of its Windows Store and is the main reason why it keeps bringing classic apps here. Stay tuned, because as soon as we get more information, we will let you know. You’ll also be the first to know once the Office Desktop Apps are available for downloading and working properly. Until then, keep reading our news on Microsoft and its latest operating system.
