Win10 Action Center now displays Store app and game download progress

Home » News » Win10 Action Center now displays Store app and game download progress

The Windows 10 Creators Update brings many useful changes and improvements, offering users more information about the download process of Store apps and games. The latest Windows 10 build now allows users to check the status of app and game downloads in the Action Center.

Microsoft first introduced the inline progress bar for notifications with build 15007, allowing app developers to send toast notifications with a progress indicator to show progress to users. As promised, the Redmond giant has now brought this capability to Windows Store downloads as well.

The new app and game download bar is a very useful tool when downloading large games. Users can easily go to the Action Center and check the download progress from time to time while doing something else.

The new game download bar is part of Microsoft’s strategy to take the Windows gaming experience to the new level. As a quick reminder, build 15019 is all about gaming: The Game Mode is functional, built-in Beam streaming is now available, there is a new game section in Settings, 17 additional games received support in full-screen mode, and more.

However, this build also brings some platform related bugs of its own that will impact the ability to play popular games on Windows PCs. Microsoft confirms that these platform bugs are not related to the new gaming features. Dona Sarkar’s team is working hard to find a fix for all these issues and roll it out as quickly as possible.

What do you think about the new Store app and game download bar? Is there anything you would change about it?
