Installing Apps from the Windows Store
Windows 8 comes with quite a few apps, but it doesn’t cover every base, not by a long shot. If there’s an app that you need, you can obtain the app yourself and then install it on your PC. Here are the steps to follow to install an app from the Windows Store:
- On the Start screen, tap Store. The Windows Store appears.
- Open the app that you want to install. See the “Store” section, earlier in this chapter, to learn how to navigate the Windows Store.
- If it’s a paid app, tap the price; otherwise, tap Install. Windows 8 displays a message that it’s installing the app (see Figure 5.15).
Figure 5.15. The Store app lets you know that it’s currently installing the app.
