Microsoft Appears to be Adding a Wish List to its Online Store

Posted on August 24, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Windows 10 with 6 Comments

It doesn’t do anything yet, but the Microsoft Store in Windows 10 and on the web have picked up a new Wish List link.

As was first reported by OnMSFT, the new link appears on digital apps and games. But in looking around the store, I see it on PCs and other hardware, too.

It doesn’t appear for movies, TV shows, or e-books, at least not yet.

It also doesn’t do anything: If you select the link, it highlights for a moment, but then just reverts to normal. I assume that when this feature is fully implemented, we’ll see a way to manage our wish lists under our Microsoft profiles online.

    Ahhh. There's a lot you could wish for in the MS app store - for it to go away would be one of them. Seriously, I'm sure this will cue up a lot of similar comments.

    The MS app store is just turning into a shop from for MS hardware and services anyway. So few independent apps actually get submitted now, and many of the big ones are closing down or certainly aren't being updated.

    Can you also wish for the Store to disappear?

    Is the Store becoming an E Commerce platform or what?
