    Update the apps of Windows Store for all users


    Hi

    It is possible update for all users the Windows Store apps with a local account belonging to the Administrators group?

    Then, I believe that the management of updating of the Windows Store apps can also be managed only by administrators. Right? If so, how do I do this?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Hello Balubeto,

    Store apps are owned by each specific user account, and must be updated in each specific account as well. User accounts do not share Store apps, so they can not be updated for all users from another account.

    However, Store apps have automatic updating turned on for all users by default.
    You could disable or enable the ability of all users to turn on or off automatic download of app updates though.

    Hope this helps some,
    Shawn

    I'm still intrigued to know how this will work when Windows 8.1 is a Store app...

    By chance, there is also a procedure to ensure that an administrator can manually start the updates to the apps for all users?

    Thanks

    I'm not aware of a way since an app is owned by the user profile.
