Microsoft Office Apps Are Now Available via the Windows Store

16 June 2017, 04:35 | Brandon Parsons

There's still a long way to go for developers more to adjust and convert their apps but Microsoft is hoping the Windows Store will eventually become the go to place for millions of desktop apps. Other users can also download the Office Desktop apps on other Windows 10 devices but that would be once the Preview period is over. Today the Office Desktop Apps are available to download from the Windows Store.

The company does point out in a support article that the Office version that's listed on the Windows Store is going to have some limitations.

Microsoft is making the full version of Office available in the Windows Store to owners of its new Surface Laptop.

Moreover, there's no OneNote app included in the Windows Store version of Office, but users will be able to install the existing UWP app.

You won't be able to use COM add-ins.

This is being done to provide all Windows users (even those running the standard or Insider builds) with the full suite of Microsoft Office productivity apps such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook.

Windows 10 S is a streamlined version of Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system created to improve performance by limiting the programs it can run.

"On June 15, according to the Support article, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access and Publisher" will be part of "Office for the Windows Store".

This isn't the first time that Office is being listed on the Windows Store. Those of you not using a Windows 10 S device can't install this new 32-bit version of Office via the Windows Store until it's out of preview. And the OneNote app that is installed will not be the OneNote 2016 version; it will be the Universal Windows Platform version. Hopefully, Windows 10 S will bring new life into the Windows Store and not let it die slowly like it's been doing recently.
