    Apps Tab / Intentional Change?

    The apps in the apps & functions tab under Start now only shows "Microsoft Corporation" underneath individual app from Microsoft, while from non-Microsoft applications it's just blank. They used to say different developer/publisher/creator before. Is this change intentional or is it a bug? This must've changed in a cumulative update because it wasn't like when the April feature update first launched.

    That looks the same as mine. Only MS apps show developer, if not MS. 3rd party also show blank. Not sure if this ever changed, to be honest.

    Deliberate choice? Omission? Bug? Or just bias?

    Thanks for this, dalchina. I hardly ever visited that Setting other than to Reset or Repair Store Apps (new to 1803). I have always used the Control Panel/Programs & Features or CCleaner, instead, to use Uninstall/Repair and all publishers are listed in both along with version numbers, so much more useful.

    So what's going on then? Project CARS 2 used to say "slightly Mad Studios", Prey "Arkane Studios", Origin "Electronic Arts" etc etc on 1709, now on 1803 it's just blank.

    Well, the 'S' version of Windows has everything exclusively downloaded via the Store. Is this loss of info some sort of sign presaging a progressive move to that being the exclusive future of Windows? Surely not...??
