The Microsoft Store has acquired a brand new replace that permits it to launch a lot quicker. Customers which are utilizing model 22309 of the shop ought to see a noticeable distinction in launch instances – though I personally don’t suppose a meager launch time revamp is sufficient to attract customers to the shop.
Impartial developer Daniel (@kid_jenius on X/Twitter) seen the change and famous that the launch time has apparently dropped from seven seconds to 2 seconds. In fact, that’s no assure that your outcomes shall be precisely the identical, nevertheless it appears the app is definitely faster than earlier than.

In case you’d wish to replace your Microsoft Store to model 22309, you’ll mockingly have to make use of… Microsoft Retailer. In case you’re courageous sufficient you’ll open the shop, when it will definitely hundreds, choose the library icon on the decrease left nook, choose the choice that claims ‘get updates’, and choose the obtainable updates.
In case you can’t see an obtainable replace your gadget could have mechanically put in it already.
After which what?
So, you could be sitting right here studying this and considering ‘who cares?’ (harsh however truthful) or a extra well mannered ‘so what?’, and actually? You’d be justified. Clearly, this can be a transfer from Microsoft to begin hammering out the kinks within the app, however not many individuals really use it.
For so long as I can bear in mind, I’ve downloaded all my apps and software program instantly from the web moderately than subjecting myself to the irritating horror that’s the Microsoft Retailer. It’s at all times been laggy, clunky, and gradual.
Microsoft has struggled to entice customers to the shop, and whereas it’s making small steps to make the expertise higher, most Windows customers are extra accustomed to going straight to the app’s website and downloading instantly.
At this level, I don’t suppose there’s something Microsoft can do (barring a full teardown and redesign, which we’re seemingly not seeing quickly) to lure me into its buggy storefront. I recognize the hassle, nevertheless it’s too little too late.
