Written by Naveen Robsworth

Windows Store is an app store for Microsoft Windows and was first made available for the Windows 8. Both free and paid apps are available in Windows Store. Windows Store has undergone a complete revamp for Windows 10 making it easy to navigate and install the apps which you want. Windows store is a part of Microsoft’s quest for a single place for all applications. Yet Windows store is not the go-to place for all the applications because PC users are still unable the find the applications they are looking for.

Microsoft has been trying to push most of the apps to its store. Similar to Android Play store apps, Microsoft apps are large in size especially the game apps. These apps occupy large spaces and also takes a majority of your internet speed and time. Even after updating the apps, some may not work. By default all apps set to auto update whenever WiFi is available. It’s quite uncomfortable to disable the auto-update feature for each app of Windows 10 store apps.
Let’s see how to enable or disable the auto update feature in Windows 10 store apps.
