    Hey there,

    is someone actually using the Win10 apps which come by defaults? Or the app store in general?

    Curious if someone finds it useful to use the Win10 apps or do you harden them out with the toolkit?

    I actually never used them, but always got interested, but still.. not even tried them in a VM, so...

    So, no reason to even try them out? I basically delete everything with the toolkit, even the store itself.

    I don't use them, but i noticed one of my family members using the Windows 10 app store the other day.
    They seem to enjoy the weather app as well.

    I don't use them, I run with Enterprise LTSB :biggrin:
    Quick Launch is very good for shortcuts.

    I have W10 14352.1002 Pro and Enterprise at home and I use store for both. Apps like Adblock Plus, Wi-Fi Analyzer, Tubecast, Package Tracker, AppRaisin, etc. It seems that MS update many things through store, like Alarms, Groove, Voice Recording, Solitaire, Maps (offline), OneNote, Calculator, etc.

    Weather as a live tile, Edge as an alternate browser, calculator ... because the win32 version is gone, and mail. Photos crashes when multiple instances are open (seems to fixed in rs1 though). The rest I don't use.

    I use Netflix, Network Speed Test and there a few games I play on there as well as a half decent video player that I use on my Tablet, nothing on there I couldn't live without but I still prefer to have it rather then not.

    I have no intention of ever using the store. I prefer computer programs. not phone apps.

    Windows 10 apps were never too great, as well as it installs crap like Candy Crush by default... Of course, as soon as I install I immediately uninstall everything I can off the touch-apps, but before I went back to 7 I noticed it also re-downloads and installs those apps back, which annoyed me. The telemetry with those apps are absolutely wild too, so I really hope nobody does.

    I think what he was trying to say as making it work for phone and PC, is not the same as just for PC

    Example: Touch keyboard from taskbar-can't resize=PITA
    C/Windows/system 32/osk can resize keyboard, you can right click on osk, send to desktop, create shortcut, then drag to taskbar
