How Are Windows Store Apps Updated?

Saturday, October 29th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Windows 10, Windows 8

A reader had a question about apps from the Windows Store. “After you have gotten an app from the store, how is it updated?”


That’s a simple one. Updates come as a part of your regular Windows update. When the store first came out, you had to run those Windows app updates separately, which was a huge pain in the behind and sometimes led to apps not getting updated at all. But in 8.1 and Windows 10, app updates will be included with you Windows updates.

    That is too bad since you have no control over when updates are done. I very much prefer to control when updates are done to my apps to avoid changes hosing something up that I need.
