Hi Rick,
Apps are now for PC's as well.  You need to tell your computer that you want to install the appfrom other than the Microsoft store, steps below.
To change your app download and installation options  to something other than the Microsoft Store do the following:
1. Windows + I, for settings and tab 1 time to, System.
2. Navigate to, Apps, and press enter.
3. The first folder in the list is, Apps and Features, press enter on this, and tab 1 time to the Choose where to get your apps combobox.  Press, Alt + down arrow, to open the
combobox, arrow up / down to the option you want and press enter.  You can Alt + F4 to close after you've made your choice.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Subject: I Cannot Install the new JAWS Beta

Dear Listers:


I understand that  the new JAWS 2021 Beta version has just come out.  I am trying to install it.  I am using a Desktop computer, Windows 10 and the latest version of JAWS.  I have downloaded and saved the application for the new Beta version but when I go to the folder where it is and hit the Enter key after locating it, instead of giving me the option to install it I am getting a dialog that just says “get app from store.”  I know apps are only used with phones and I don’t know how to handle apps as I have only a cell phone, not an i-phone, so I don’t know how to rectify this problem and download the Beta version to my Desktop.
