    New laptop purchase missing microsoft store app, photos app


    Hi everyone,

    I purchased an Emachines laptop for my son to use at high school model number E729Z running Windows 10 Enterprise and I went to locate the App store app but it can not be found. I can not import photos from his iPhone or my Sony Xperia XZ Premium. Can anyone help me in being able to get Windows store App and Photo's app onto his laptop for him? This is our first Windows 10 laptop as I run Windows 8 on mine and I'm not to keen to switch after the trouble I've had so far with this one.

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Enterprise is not for general consumer use so not sure how you got it legitimately.

    Also it can be configured to block Store - so it is,probably hidden by a group policy.

    Configure access to Microsoft Store (Windows 10) | Microsoft Docs

    Sounds like it's LTSB ?

    There are methods to make Windows 10 Pro into something that resembles LTSB if you know what you are doing.

    I purchased the laptop second hand, but its new for my son. I've looked into the link you posted and unfortunately I haven't been able to locate the Store folder that is mentioned to configure access.

    I'm just reading up on Enterprise and I'm thinking the same thing. Maybe I should just upgrade to a different version of windows

    Have you checked the operating system version, by using the command winver typed into the Run dialog?
    You can also check in the settings, under System>About.
