Microsoft Store update

We know that some of you really wanted this feature and that it’s late due, but better late than never, right?

The Store on Windows 11 just got a little bit better, as users pointed out on Reddit. If you were wondering what all the fuss is about, know that the library section of the Windows 11 app store now has proper sorting options.

These extra options will come in handy when you want to find and download the apps that matter most to you.

New Store tweaks allow you to better sort apps

As you can observe from the image below, the update tweaks the filter button in the library so it’s no longer triggers a giant drop-down box.

Instead, the filter button is now smaller, showing you options in a smaller compact drop-down menu. The button, though, is still on the right side of the screen, so that hasn’t changed.

Indeed, this is a welcome quality of life change, but the reactions have been mixed. Many Windows 11 users are still waiting for the much anticipated Amazon App Store and Android apps integration in Windows 11.

Another interesting fact that fellow users mentioned is that the Windows 11 Microsoft Store still doesn’t let you remove apps from the library, especially pre-installed like Candy Crush or Spotify.

This is disappointing news for many that feel like such software has no place on their devices.

Although the change might be fairly minor, people hope that some bigger things could over the horizon.

There are hints that a potential final sign-off of Windows 11 coming around September, so Android apps might be shipping in the OS post-launch and at a later date, with Insiders testing it first.
