App auto update

More Windows Blue news hitting the internet for your reading pleasure. This time, Microsoft has allowed users to automatically update their modern Apps from the Windows Store with the flick of a setting.

As you can see from the screenshot above, there is a setting in the Control Panel that allows a user to easily update apps automatically, without having to open up Windows Store and see an “update” link at the top-right of their screen anymore.

This is indeed a great feature, although it is so minor, because it allows users to automatically update their apps without having the need to check the Store every time or be bothered to update an app while browsing the Store. Currently, this feature is present in the leaked Windows Blue build 9364, which leaked yesterday.

Windows Blue is bringing forth a plethora of changes and tweaks to make your modern experience that much better. We recently learned about the File Manager app that Microsoft is working on. It is still in early stages of development but it is a good start nonetheless.
