Microsoft Store is pioneering an exciting new feature on Windows to enhance user experience and simplify app transitions between devices. The new backup and restore capability will make shifting from one device to another seamless for customers.

Microsoft Windows 11 Tabbed File Explorer

This feature will automatically restore the icons for Store apps on the Start menu and Taskbar when customers transition from their Windows 10 or 11 device to a new Windows 11 device. This means that all apps will be restored exactly where the user had them on their previous device, ensuring continuity and reducing the hassle of manual app restoration.

The backup and restore feature is currently in preview and is available to Windows Insiders for testing.
