Microsoft made many announcements at its Microsoft Education event recently, and one thing that might have slipped everyone’s notice was a new name for the Windows Store in Windows 10. The software giant recently changed the documentation for Windows Store for Business and Education, replacing the “Windows Store” name with “Microsoft Store.”

The main documentation for Microsoft Store for Business and Education says:

Welcome to the Microsoft Store for Business and Education! You can use Microsoft Store to find, acquire, distribute, and manage apps for your organization or school. You can also work with developers to create line-of-business apps that are only available to your organization. IT admins can sign up for the Microsoft Store for Business and Education, and get started working with apps.

It further adds:

Designed for organizations, Microsoft Store for Business and Microsoft Store for Education gives IT decision makers and administrators in businesses or schools a flexible way to find, acquire, manage, and distribute free and paid apps in select markets to Windows 10 devices in volume.

So. there does not seem to be a misrepresentation from Microsoft. The change currently affects Microsoft’s enterprise and education customers. The company’s merging of the Microsoftstore.com with the Windows Store on the web is also another indication that Microsoft is keen on renaming the Windows Store to Microsoft Store for everybody, meaning you may soon be able to purchase apps and products from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/b/home on Windows 10.

It still remains unknown, however, whether Redmond actually intends to roll out the new name for the Windows Store to regular users. In any case, merging both stores into one seems to be a good step toward helping users manage their Office 365 subscriptions, purchase Microsoft devices, and buy apps for those devices more easily.
