Windows 11 will allow you to quickly restore applications on a new PC

Windows 11 will improve the restoration of user applications through the Microsoft Store.


Updating the Windows system from scratch is usually very laborious since, after installation, it is necessary to go back to search and download the applications that we used. Microsoft  knows this and that is why it is looking to streamline this process.

The company, through the Microsoft Store, will be allowing Windows 11 users to quickly restore applications on their new PCs with said operating system.

“To make it easier for customers to transition to their new PCs quickly and seamlessly, we will soon be testing a new feature in the Windows Insider channel that helps customers automatically restore their apps, previously installed from the Microsoft Store, to their new device . Windows,” explains Giorgio Sardo, general manager of the Microsoft Store. “This will also help developers retain their customers without having to remind them to re-download their app.”

How will this new Windows tool work?

This tool will be included in the Microsoft Store, where we will find a section called ‘Library’ and where all the programs that we previously had with our account will be saved.

There, the user will be able to choose which ones to restore on their new PC.

Of course, for this to happen, the applications must also be in the Microsoft Store, so if they are not in your store, it may be necessary to manually download the software online.

From when will it be available?

The tool will initially be available for Windows Insiders, users who test updates before other users to report incidents to the company, so that errors can be corrected before their global release.

At the moment, there is talk of a few “weeks” from the announcement of this news for its implementation in said users.
