Windows 11’s Store gets Adobe’s full-fledged PDF reader desktop app

Windows 11 app store

During the Windows event, one of the big surprises from
Microsoft was the completely overhauled Microsoft Store
experience. Microsoft has relaxed restrictions on apps that can
be submitted to Windows 11’s app store. As a result, companies
like Zoom and Adobe are now publishing their full-fledged
desktop apps to the Microsoft Store.

With Windows 10, Microsoft Store has become more user and
developer-friendly. For users, Store is seeing a major
redesign, making it much easier for you to download large apps
and games on your device. Similarly, Microsoft has redesigned
the homepage of the store to help you find their apps easily.

Instead of searching for your favourite apps on Google or Bing,
you’ll be able to find them in the redesigned Microsoft Store.
As we reported recently, several well-known apps are already
available on the new store. For example,
OBS Studio and Canva have published their desktop apps in the

Earlier today, Adobe’s free PDF reader also appeared in the
Microsoft Store. Adobe is a full-desktop app and it isn’t the

Microsoft is not limiting the functionality of the app.

If you already use other Adobe products, you can always connect
the Store version of Acrobat Reader DC to the company’s storage
cloud and sync your activities.

The Microsoft Store version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is a
simple port of the app already available on the company’s
website. It’s free and it can handle opening multiple large
files, and you can also annotate documents in this program
using the app’s in-built controls or Windows 11’s inking
feature without worrying that it will crash on you.

More desktop and web apps coming to the Microsoft Store

From Win32 to web apps, Microsoft’s renewed focus on Windows
Store has been welcomed by the developers. In addition to
Adobe, Zoom, OBS Studio, Canva, TikTok and the web app
ClimChamp are also available in the Microsoft Store.

Canva confirmed that their desktop app will be available for
download when Windows 11 comes out. On the other hand,
ClimChamp’s web app is now available for everyone.

The launch of Windows 11 is expected in October, but a wider
rollout is not expected until early next year. Fortunately,
Microsoft has already confirmed that the new Store won’t be
exclusive to Windows 11 and these apps will also arrive for
Windows 10 users later this year.
