If you deleted a Windows 10 app that you purchased or downloaded from the Microsoft Store and you have to run it again, reinstalling the app is easy. You can also install the app on other PCs that you sign in with the same Microsoft account. Here’s how.

First, open the Microsoft Store. If you can’t find it, open the Windows 10 Start menu and type “Microsoft Store,” then click the “Microsoft Store” icon when it appears.

When the Microsoft Store app opens, click the ellipsis (three dots) button in the upper right corner of the window and select “My Library” from the menu.

In the “My Library” section, you’ll see a list of Windows 10 apps you own that have been purchased or downloaded from the Microsoft Store.

By default, you will see a list of all the apps, including the ones you have already installed. To restrict it, click “Ready to Install” in the sidebar menu and you will see a list of applications that have not been installed on your computer.

If you need help refining the list further, you can sort the list by name, date purchased, or type (apps or games) using the drop-down menus above the list.

In the Microsoft Store, you can sort apps by category, name, or date.

Once you have located the app you want to reinstall, click the “Install” button next to it.

Windows 10 will be downloaded from the Microsoft Store and will install automatically. Once the installation is complete, you can launch the application using the “Launch” button in the list, or simply run it from the Start menu.

If you need to reinstall other apps, click the button next to each one on your “My Library” page in the Microsoft Store. Multiple downloads and installations will be handled automatically. Good computing!
