Hot to Fix: “You can only install apps from the Microsoft Store” in Windows 10.
Modified on: Sat, 14 Nov, 2020 at 10:30 PM
- Press Windows key + I to summon the Settings app.
- Choose Apps.
- Choose Apps & features from the left pane.
- Under the “Installing apps“, expand the drop-down menu.
- Choose “Allow apps from anywhere” and exit Settings.
That should allow you to install whatever you want. However, this doesn’t mean that the UAC won’t limit certain applications that want to make changes to the system. Run them as an administrator to avoid that.
