Microsoft yesterday announced a lot of new products it is developing for the education audience at its event yesterday in New York City. The company has recently updated some of its documentation for Windows Store for Business and Education which mentions the Windows Store name to be replaced as Microsoft Store.

The Documentation for Microsoft Store for Business and Education states as follows:

“Welcome to the Microsoft Store for Business and Education! You can use Microsoft Store to find, acquire, distribute, and manage apps for your organization or school. You can also work with developers to create line-of-business apps that are only available to your organization. IT admins can sign up for the Microsoft Store for Business and Education, and get started working with apps.”

Currently it seems that the change is only for the business and education customers but the company might think of changing the name or renaming Windows Store to Microsoft Store going forward.


We are currently not sure if the company plans to roll out the new name for Windows Store to all regular consumers and we are currently awaiting details on the same from the Redmond Giant. We will be updating this article once we have confirmation on the same. Till then let us know your thoughts if its a good idea to change the name from Windows to Microsoft Store in the comments below.
