    How to Remotely Install Apps from Microsoft Store Online to your Windows 10 Devices


    Microsoft has added a new Push To Install service on June 6, 2018 to the Microsoft Store online website for a feature called Install on my devices that allows you to remotely install apps you own with your Microsoft account from the Microsoft Store online website to any of your Windows 10 devices that you also sign in to with the same Microsoft account.

    This tutorial will show you how to remotely install apps you own from the Microsoft Store online to any of your Windows 10 devices.



    Here's How:

    1. Go to the Microsoft Store online in your web browser on any computer or device, and sign in with your Microsoft account if you are not already.

    2. Open the store page for an app (ex: "Netflix") you want to remotely install on your selected Windows 10 devices.

    3. If your Microsoft account already owns this app, then click/tap on the menu (3 dots) button, and click/tap on Install on my devices. (see screenshot below)

    4. Check any of your listed Windows 10 devices that use the same Microsoft account you want to remotely install this app on, and click/tap on Install now. (see screenshot below)

    5. Click/tap on OK. (see screenshot below)

    6. The app will now eventually be installed on your selected Windows 10 devices the next time they are online.

    If Push To Install is disabled on a PC, the app will not actually get installed on the PC.


    That's it,
    Shawn

    It seems that the ability to remotely install app has not yet rolled out to everyone; when we tried to test it, the option was not available to use. But for those people for whom the feature has been activated, it provides a handy way to install apps without the need to be sitting in front of your computer.
    You can now remotely install apps from the Microsoft Store to your Windows 10 devices

    I would love to use this, but since updating to 1803 I get this error when downloading store apps to my PC: 0x80070002.

    Have tried removing all apps and installing all using Power Shell but the error is still there.
    Did a repair install, still the same.
    Even did a clean install, still the same!!!!
