Install UWP apps without using the Windows Store

You can install Windows 10 apps even when the Windows Store is blocked by, for example, your company. For that, first search the UWP app for the you want to install in the Microsoft Store.

Then copy the URL in your address bar and paste it on this website. Click the Button with the tick then. You will then get a list of links. Ignore everything that has NET.Native or VCLibs in its name. Search for a file with an Appx or an AppxBundle extension.

Once you have downloaded the file, open a PowerShell windows as administrator and run the following command:

Add-AppxPackage <APPX-FILE-NAME>

And that’s it! You should now see your package in the app list of your start menu.

Please note that you may need to install dependencies before that and in some cases, the installation will fail completely.
