Windows Store

Microsoft has pushed out an update to the Windows Store today, which adds an interesting design change to the Windows Store. When customers look at an app listing in the Windows Store for Windows 10, they can now see the app’s theme color behind the app icons and details, which makes the app listing page visually appealing.

The Windows Store also has a new setting, too. Customers will also now be prompted with a PIN or password when purchasing an app so that Microsoft can make sure that no unauthorized purchases are made on the customer’s account, however he or she can turn this off if they prefer.

If you’re not sure how to get the update, just open the Store, click your profile picture at the top right corner, click Downloads and updates, then click check for updates. The Store should automatically update itself, if it hasn’t already.
