The revamped version of the Windows Store is now available for Fast ring Insiders, a preview of Microsoft’s Windows 10 Anniversary Update scheduled to debut this summer. Shortly after the new Windows Store version was launched, Insiders complained about various bugs and issues that made the user experience a bit annoying.

Since the Anniversary Update comes in only two months’ time, Microsoft was quick to fix the issues reported by Insiders. You can now manually check for updates because the update button is fully functional. Also, you can now install the Store on your Windows 10 PC as all installation errors have been fixed.

The Recent Activity feature shows you the app update history and version numbers so that you know what Store version you are running. The Store is a lot faster now as well — a single click gets the page you desire to appear instantly. Also, available apps and media are better-organized thanks to the new individual app listing’s page design.

The new Windows Store design is the first revamp since the release of Windows 10 and so far, it has been a success. However, there are still some things to polish according to users. Many complained about the gradient fill on app pages (qualifying it as “amateurish”),  downloads no longer showing file size, and the fact that side scrolling is no longer available. The good news is that Microsoft has two more months to make the necessary adjustments.

The Windows Store is not the only feature to be revamped with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update: the Start menu already has a new look and will host more ads in the near future, Chasable Live Tiles are live, while the Action Center has already been redesigned and new actions have been added.

Have you tried out the new Windows Store? If you did, are you satisfied with the results?
