Microsoft’s Windows App Store Revealed In Leaked Screenshots

Microsoft is planning to build an app store into Windows, according to leaked screenshots on a Taiwanese online news forum.

Here’s what they posted:

Windows App Store

A Microsoft spokesperson refused to comment on the screenshots, and said the company has nothing to share about future versions of Windows at this time.

But if they’re real, two things stand out.

  • It’s called the Windows App Store. Last month, Microsoft tried to stop Apple from trademarking the term “App Store,” saying it was too generic.
  • The screenshots appear to be running on Windows 7, which suggests the App Store might not be a Windows 8 exclusive.
