    Windows App Store multi users

    Before I created my account my dad installed some apps on the tablet, now that I have created my own account I can't access any of the apps he installed.
    Please help.

    Apps are "purchased" on a per user basis. Even free apps are considered "purchased". You need to install them under your account.

    Ok thank you for this I will download the same apps under my username but will installing the apps again under my user use up more space on the tablet?

    Windows 8 of course :D

    No, the app won't take double space, even if it's installed on both accounts. Only your own data for the app (like settings) could take some more space.
