    How does one verify that an App is sutiable for installation on a PC?

    Hi, I am relatively new to Win 10 and have battled to get the Windows Store to work on my laptop (PC). The laptop does not have a touch screen.

    How do I know if an App is suitable for installation on a PC?

    hello, to my knowledge the laptop doesn't nee to be touch ,not sure how one would decide if an app is suitable ,, I usually just install app that I think I can or will use ,like music apps ,weather app, wikipedia app ect ect .

    ????? what issues are you having when trying to use the Windows Store App, and all the app in the store are for computers, so they should be suitable for your laptop ,only issue would be do you need or want to have it on your computer ,I guess if an app said it was for touch screen you wouldn't install that one

    The store will work without a touchscreen, so will the Apps. If you don't like how the App behaves just uninstall it.
