The above screenshot shows the main page of the redesigned Windows Store which now displays the same as before featured are, but we know get to see small thumbnails for the apps and games that are featured. Underneath, there’s the “collections” section, with various apps grouped together, like “indie games spotlight”, “essential games”, “great xbox games” and many others. Those of you who have a Surface tablet will see a special column with picks for your Surface tablet. Also, on the top right corner, there’s the “search for apps” function, integrated in the top bar, were we can see “top charts”, “categories”, “collections” and account.
