      I need to automating the update of Windows Store apps. The Windows way is open Windows Store and select Update Apps. Of course this way is not really helpful for IT admins that have to update of 800+ desktops, also it cannot be performed silently without any user interactions.

      What I really need is a script or PowerShell commands to force update and installation of all Windows Store apps installed in a client.

      Any idea or suggestion?

      If all your desktops are running Windows 10/11, you could use Windows Package Manager CLI (winget) like this:

      winget upgrade --all --accept-source-agreements --accept-package-agreements

        I forgot to mention that you can also include –silent (or -h) option with above command to suppress the UI during upgrade/install process of all apps.

          Thanks again for your suggestion, I have to take some time to study paramenters, because I did a quick test in my lab but it fails because is requested a MS Store source.

      Did Surrender’s solution work? I found this solution.

      In my view, the Windows Store app are total mess. The biggest failure in Microsoft’s history. Even the Nokia deal was brilliant compared to Windows Store mess.

        I have already tried in the past, the main concern is the process start to update Ms Store apps but it doesn’t install anything.

        So I agree about the Windows Store is a mess , but probably this solution is not a priority in Microsoft vision.
