    Advanced App Store Filter?


    Is it possible to "block" certain apps from the app store search page?
    There are just 100's of redudant useless apps ...and I keep opening
    the same ones over and over again trying to find new ones.

    Hello livingdeadboy,

    If you like, while searching for apps in the store, you could use the "Sort by newest" filter at step 3 in Option One or step 6 in Option Two in the tutorial below to help.

    Windows Store - Search for Apps

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    I was thinking more along the lines of a third party app,
    that would scan all the windows store apps as links...
    then give you further customization options...

    Or a hack that added a "block" button within the page.

    Like on Google Chrome your able to block certain websites from showing up in an image search.

    did you try "great windows apps"? it's supposed to curate apps for you so that you can tell bad reviews from good reviews.

    I'm not aware of any way to block apps from being listed in the Store. Only to filter them.
