Although the most logical and straightforward way to get Microsoft Store apps is via the store in question, that is not always possible. Microsoft Store is a great app, but it is by no means flawless: for instance, it can get corrupt and refuse to work. If troubleshooting the platform has been to no avail, you should consider other options to get what you need. That is why we recommend you to read this article – it will teach you how to download Microsoft Store apps without the Store.

Make use of Adguard Store

There is a helpful tool called Adguard Store that is designed to help you download and install Microsoft Store apps on your Windows 10 machine. The only catch is, this way you can only get free Microsoft Store apps, and there is no way to circumvent this limitation. If you try to use the Adguard Store link generator to get a paid Microsoft Store product, you will not see any valid links. To use paid Microsoft Store goods, you should fix your Microsoft Store payment issues – that is quite easy, so there is no need to worry.

To use Adguard Store in order to get download links for free Microsoft Store products, google Adguard Store and proceed to the official website of the product. There you should locate a search bar on the screen. Then paste the Microsoft Store link of the app you wish to get into that bar. There is a drop-down menu to the right of the bar – there you can choose what version of the desirable app you want to download. As a result, you will a get a link (or a list of links) that you can use to download the Microsoft Store product which you are eager to get.
