    how do i backup my apps?!


    i'm still searching for a method/software/app/script to backup my apps or have, at least, a list of installed apps.

    i'm used to do system image backups but last time it went corrupted and i had to format and remember what was installed... i could have a log in my microsoft account but a (automatic) backup/reinstall would be better.

    thanks

    You can see list of all your apps in W10 by using the Store App. In the App click on settings (your icon) and select My Library. In the Apps section select show all. It will indicate if the apps you have previously purchased or downloaded are installed on your present device.

    On a new device, if you login via your Microsoft account this will be the way you can select the apps to reinstall them.
