  • If you open the Windows 11 Store right now, you will find the Visual Studio software there, for free.
  • So developers can now write, build, and debug or edit their code even on the upcoming operating system.
Windows 11 Store Visual Studio

We know that a lot of people were actually upset because some software they use for their jobs wasn’t available on the new OS.

However, now, those that use Visual Studio to create modern applications for Android, iOS, and Windows, can find it in Microsoft’s Store.

To find this free IDE, all you have to do is simply open the store and search for it. Downloading and installing only takes a few minutes, so you will be good to go in no time.

Visual Studio is now available on the Windows 11 Store

As we all know by now, Visual Studio Dev tools & services make app development easy for any platform & language. The software program is designed for developers who intend to write, build, and debug or edit their code.

We can all agree that the objective behind every app store is to establish itself as a credible source where users can find all the apps they need.

Unfortunately, Microsoft had fallen short in meeting developers’ expectations and unleashing the full potential of its app store.

Rest assured that this scenario is likely to change with the coming of the Windows 11 ecosystem. You can get Visual Studio Code and Visual Studio Community from the Microsoft Store on the next-generation OS.

Earlier, things were a bit different and developers had to build a completely new app to get it in the Windows Store.

This was tedious and no one was rewriting their apps to get on an immature platform like the Windows Store.

Nonetheless, Microsoft always wanted to make its Store the best place for users to find apps and encourage developers to acquire new customers, generate revenue, and thus, find success in the Store.

So, just to recap, the fully-featured, extensible, free IDE for creating modern applications is free and available to Windows Insiders right now.
