If Windows went the way of only allowing apps to be installed from the app store, I am pretty sure many of us would stop using Windows. I think the reason a lot of us like Windows is that it’s not so proprietary, notso completely controlled by Microsoft that your experience begins and ends with them.
That said, there is a special version of Windows designed for educational purposes that I think only allows programmes from the store to be installed. And even my own Windows tried to point me more in that direction before I changed things. Now I can just install anything I like, from anywhere; that’s the way I want my computer to behave. *grins*

Thanks for explaining. I asked about getting apps becaus eon Mac, if something isn’t in the app store, it’s a pain to install. I know with Windows 8 it was very easy to install programs you got off the Internet, but I wasn’t sure this still works in Windows 10.
