List of Windows 8 Apps I own?

Hi - I just purchased a new Surface Pro. I have a Win 8 laptop and a Surface RT. I'd like to view a list of APPS I previously purchased or downloaded for free from the Windows Store so that I may be able to download them again direct from the list.

Is this possible?

I know Microsoft has this for WP8 apps. 


Thanks!

Hi

 

When you login to the Store using your Store Account (Microsoft Account) from any computer, you will be able to see all of the apps that you have purchased or downloaded.

 

The information for your account is kept on the Store servers.

 

Open the Store.

Press the WinKey+I to display the settings.

On the Charms bar, select Your Account.

Sign On with the account.

 

Right click on the main screen.

Select Your Apps at the top.

In the drop down menu, select All Apps.

This will display a list of free and purchased apps that you have installed. From this screen you can reinstall any app on up to 5 computers and as many user accounts on those computers as you wish.
