How To Copy Paid Apps From One Windows 8 PC To Other

You have to understand that the Windows Store operates just the way Google Play Market and Apple App Store does. It implies, you need you download your apps under an account, and then you can install those apps on any Windows 8 machine just by logging as the same user and download that app from the Windows App Store.

  • On the Start Screen, tap / click on the button which says, Store as it would take you to Windows Store
  • Take your mouse to the top of the screen, right click there and click on Your Apps
  • And if your working on a tablet, swipe downwards from the top of the screen and then tap on Your Apps
  • Now choose which ever app you want to install (that you have already bought), and you will have it installed on your new machine / device too

The only catch for this method is that you can only use those apps if its logged in as your account. If you try to use the app with some other account, it wont let you go ahead.
