Microsoft says no more blocking Windows Store on Pro edition

Microsoft says no more blocking Windows Store on Pro edition

Microsoft said extensions will finally be made available in the mobile Edge browser with the upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update expected sometime this summer.

IT administrators had been using Group Policy to block the Store within Windows 10 Pro, largely to keep workers from installing apps not on their company's approved software list.

The browser s the latest in a number of popular apps and services to gain support for AdBlock and AdBlock Plus.

A spokespebble quoth: "Details are still being finalised, but on 29 July the Get Windows 10 app that facilitates the easy upgrade to Windows 10 will be disabled and eventually removed from PCs worldwide".

Microsoft Edge is our modern browser for helping you get things done.

The Windows Store for Business is now integrated with Microsoft Intune, which synchronizes the app inventory of online licensed apps with app metadata.

If you have not yet upgraded to Windows 10 despite the incessant reminders from Microsoft, there is a good chance that you prefer sticking to Windows 7 or 8.1.

Though it is said that Windows 10 has 300 million users, the growth rate have a different story to tell. It is now available in a range of Windows PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile phones and will also feature in HoloLens and Xbox gaming consoles unlike previous versions of the operating system.

Ad blockers became highly controversial once publishers expressed their concerns.

I am going to do this math based on averages but I am going to only use the last four sets of momentum numbers and not the big bump of installs that happened in the first 30 days after Windows 10 was released. We've not fully ruled out an extension to the free offer yet, although it would nearly certainly upset as many people as it pleased. If it has one your computer is now registered with Microsoft and Windows 10 can be installed when it suits you to do so.

People are playing games on Windows 10 more than ever before, with more than nine billion hours of gameplay on Windows 10 since launch.

But there are a few simple steps that you can and should take too "reserve" your free copy now, if you do this, you will still be able to upgrade after the 29th of July and will not have to pay.
