Recently, I’ve been having quite a lot of problems with the Windows Store – I’ve been getting a lot of glitches and errors and the app updates wouldn’t install at all. Then, when trying to go to the featured area of the Windows Store, everything seemed scrambled there and with glitches.

As it turns out, it was caused by a change that Microsoft was bringing to the Windows Store. Maybe I am getting this too late, but now, I don’t have to right-click anymore in order to bring up the categories, as they are now showing near the featured apps are, to the right.
