Microsoft had a lot of announcements to make at its Microsoft Education event yesterday. One thing that the company didn’t talk about yesterday was a new name for the Windows Store in Windows 10. A new report suggests that Microsoft might soon rename Windows Store to Microsoft Store in Windows 10. We didn’t hear anything about this possibility tomorrow so take it with a grain of salt for now.
Microsoft announced the launch of Windows 10 S yesterday. It’s a new version of Windows 10 that’s aimed at the education sector. It seeks to take on Chromecast’s domination. The company also launched the Surface Laptop, its very first machine that comes with Windows 10 S out of the box. It’s a robust laptop with great specifications that costs $999.
The suggestion that Microsoft might rename Windows Store to Microsoft Store is based on the documentation that it recently updated for Windows Store for Business and Education. It has replaced the Windows Store moniker with Microsoft Store in those documents. The moniker has been replaced at multiple places which means that it can’t just be ruled out as a typo.
“Welcome to the Microsoft Store for Business and Education! You can use Microsoft Store to find, acquire, distribute, and manage apps for your organization or school,” reads the main documentation for the Windows Store for Business and Education.
This change is visible to the company’s business and education customers at this point in time but it won’t be surprising if it decides to do the same for all Windows 10 users in the near future.
