open right here, and when I do the Wikipedia app is displayedjust like it would on an Android device or on an iOS device. If I come over here to my start button, and we go under all apps, scroll down, we should now see the Wikipedia app displayed here as well. OK, let's go back to the Windows Store. Now if I come over to my user account right here, in the Windows Store app, and click on my library, we can see interesting information about the apps on this device. You can see here that I have several different apps that I own. I've either paid for or registered to use, that are not actually installed on this particular system. That's because I use this same online account across many different Windows 8 and Windows 10 Systems. Some of them have these apps installed, and some do not. For example, we have the Twitter app up here, and the Fresh Paint app, and the HP All-in-One Printer Remote app. Any app where we see this arrow right here, indicates that I own that app. I've either paid for it or registered for it, but I haven't actually downloaded and installed it on this system. If there is not an arrow over here, then I know that I have downloaded and installed that app on this system. For example, Wikipedia and WeatherBug have both been installed on this system. If I want to add one of these apps to this system, all I have to do is come over and click the appropriate icon over here on the right, and the download starts. Now this brings up an important point. Please be aware that some apps have limitations on how many different systems you can install them on. If it's a free app, then there's usually no limitation.You can install it over and over and over across many different systems using the same online user account. But if it's a paid app, there probably will be restrictions. Usually you're restricted to three different devices. So for example, if I were to go and pay for a particular app in the Microsoft Store, I would be able to install it on a desktop system, notebook system, and maybe a mobile system like a Microsoft Surface device. OK, so now I have this app, the Music Maker Jam app installed on this system as well. Let's close out of the Store app. And now let's talk about uninstalling a Windows Store app. If you have app installed on your system and you decide yea I don't really like it, I don't need to want to use it anymore, I've got too many apps installed in this system, and things are getting gummed up, you can uninstall them. To do this, you come over to your Start menu, and then locate the app that you no longer want. Let's go down to all apps. And let's suppose that we no longer need the WeatherBug app. We've got a weather app that came with Windows 10, and it's redundant with the WeatherBug app. I don't want to use it anymore. I just need one weather app. To do this, you locate the tile, right click on it, and then click on uninstall. And it tells you that the app and its related info will be uninstalled. Go ahead and uninstall it please. And then you wait for a minute while the app is uninstalled.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
