    Update the Windows Apps with a local account of Administra


    Hi

    In Windows 8.1 Update, it is possible to update, for all users, the Windows Apps with a local account of Administrators type? If so, how do I do this?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Hello Balubeto,

    Store apps are owned per user.

    By default, apps will be automatically updated for each user via the Store unless connected with a metered connection.

    Is there a way that allows an administrator to manually update all the Apps that are common to all users?

    Thanks

    Yes, the default ones included in Windows will be updated for all users.

    Those would have to be updated by the user for their own account. By default, they will automatically update though.

    With Windows 8.1 Update, I disabled, for all users, the automatic updates and installations of the apps from the Store app.

    Now, how do I remove, for all users, the display of the number of updates that appear in the lower right corner of the Store tile?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Hello Balubeto,

    The only way to remove the number of updates on the Store tile is to install the app updates, or uninstall the app.

    If you're not using a metered internet connection, then it's recommended to leave automatic Store app updates enabled to ensure that all installed apps are kept automatically updated. Apps may stop working if not kept up to date.
