Microsoft plans to provide a “Restore Apps” function for the Microsoft Store on Windows 11 so that this feature can automatically download the previous application after the user reinstalls the system. This new feature is currently being tested, and when users go to the Microsoft Store’s library, they can see a prompt asking the user if they want to restore an app on a device.
“To make it easier for customers to transition to their new PCs quickly and seamlessly, we will soon test a new feature in the Windows Insider channel that helps customers automatically restore their apps, previously installed from the Microsoft Store, to their new Windows device,” said Giorgio Sardo, general manager of the Microsoft Store. “This will also help developers retain their customers without having to remind customers to re-download their app.”
At present, this function is relatively useful, because users can not only restore previous applications but also restore all applications if necessary. That is to say, you can download the purchased apps and games in the entire library in batches. This is also a good feature for developers, which can help developers retain users and prevent users from forgetting to abandon certain applications.
