    Store not showing same apps on different computers?


    Hi I noticed when I go into store and look at game apps or entertainment apps from my machine and look on a friends laptop or another machine the apps are not the same I seem to have older apps just like my machine is not getting all new releases? How could that be and is there a fix? Thks

    what is your machine? Is it a Samsung laptop? A HP desktop? A Kenmore dishwasher?

    Go into Control Panel > Region > and see what Country is set under the Location tab. It may filter based on where you are, or where it "thinks" you are. It may also filter based on whether your running 8, 8 Pro, or RT.

    Check the tags of your laundry. They should say "Made in China"

    Are you running the final release version of Windows 8. I know when I was running the CP I didn't see near the amount of apps you get on the RTM.

    That's one of the little gotcha's that annoys me. If you select "English US" for your keyboard language it's assumed you are in the United States. So I have to go drill down and switch it to Canada. If you select "English Canada" you end up with a couple of French letters on your keyboard even though you didn't select "French Canada".
