If you still use Windows 10 but have taken a liking to the Windows 11 version of the Microsoft Store, then we have some great news for you.

The Redmond-based tech giant is close to releasing Windows 11’s Store for Windows 10 users and has now released this new app store to Windows 10 Insiders in the Release Preview ring.

Alongside the redesigned application, Microsoft also provided a final version of the upcoming Windows 10 November 2021 Update.

The redesigned store is coming to Windows 10 as well

The updated Store is identical to the one found on Windows 11 and offers greater access to win32 apps. It has a more modern design and all of the new apps that have made their way into Microsoft’s store recently.

This new Store is also a lot more open and accessible than before, allowing third-party stores like the Epic Games Store and others to be listed.

Microsoft’s entirely new vision of its Store also means that a lot more and diverse apps are now available, including Discord, Zoom, VLC, TeamViewer, and Visual Studio Code.

Also worth knowing is that any browser can be listed in the store now, and if you were to search for Opera or the Yandex Browser, you would find them.

If you also want to take this new Microsoft Store out for a test drive on your Windows 10 device, you’ll need to be on the Release Preview Insider ring.

However, if you just want to wait for it to be released to the general public, we are expecting the new Store update to arrive for all Windows 10 users in the coming weeks.
