Although Microsoft has officially released Windows 11, the harsh hardware requirements and unstable system components make many users still prefer the Windows 10 system with low hardware requirements and better stability.

Recently, Microsoft released the latest version of Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2021. In addition to taking up less space, the whole system is also more streamlined and smooth compared to the standard version. However, like the previous LTSC (Long Term Servicing Channel) version, Microsoft did not add the app store feature to this version. Therefore, you may wonder how to add Microsoft Store component to Win10 LTSC version 2021.

How to install Microsoft Store on Win10 LTSC 2021

To install Microsoft Store, you need to download a software first, named "LTSC-Add-Microsoft Store".

Click HERE to launch its GitHub page, and click on "Download" button (or “Code” > “Download ZIP”) to complete the download. It should be noted that although the page is labeled as 2019 version, it is still valid for LTSC 2021 version.

Unzip the downloaded package, right-click the first item "Add-Store.cmd", and select "Run as administrator" to start the installation process.

The whole installation will take some time, you just need to be patient until the progress is complete and the word "Press Any Key to Exit" is displayed, then click any key to exit and restart your computer.

If you can find the newly added "Microsoft Store" in the Start menu, the installation is successful (if not, repeat the above steps). It should be noted that the current version of the Store is still relatively low and must be upgraded before it can be used.

To upgrade the store, first launch the Microsoft Store, open the "..." in the upper right corner, and then click the blue "Get Updates" button. Under normal circumstances, the Microsoft Store will automatically complete its own download and installation. Once you launch the Microsoft Store again, you can easily search and download.


LTSC has always been a worthy upgrade for users who don't like to toss the system, and the LTSC 2021 version, based on Win10 21H2, not only maintains the efficient and stable features, but also adds more modern functions. If you want to use it but don't want to give up the Microsoft Store feature, then try the method provided above.
