    Windows Store configuration question


    Is it possible to configure Windows Store so it'll only show free apps or showing without the picture? My internet connection is not that fast and every time I tried to browse, it takes few seconds to load up a page, if I can just display types of apps (free, etc.) or list apps (without icon/picture), it'll speed up the loading time, but I can't find anywhere to configure this.

    With Windows 8.1 you can launch the store from the metro screen, from that location if you scroll across to the right you should find "Top Free".

    Also if you right click anywhere in open space in the store to bring up the menu, you should see "Top Free"

    I am not aware myself of anyway to optimise for low bandwidth.

    Hope that helps,

    Thanks for your reply. I believe I saw it, but when I clicked on it, another screen came up and showed free and paid apps, but I can't be 100% sure on this. I guess I'll just have to live with it and try to increase my bandwidth.
