LinkedIn for Windows 10 has stopped working. On opening the app, users are receiving a message, which reads as follows:

LinkedIn is removing support for this app in Windows, and you’ll now be directed to your default browser. Your Network, Profile, and the rest of your LinkedIn experience is available as always in your browser and the LinkedIn mobile app.

Back in September, the app went missing from Microsoft Store and while it’s now available for download in the store, you won’t be able to use it. It also means that Microsoft is going to pull the LinkedIn app from Microsoft Store within a few days.

This is not the first time that Microsoft had removed the LinkedIn app from the store. Back in 2017, Microsoft removed the LinkedIn Windows 10 Mobile app, which was based on Silverlight, from Windows Store.

Microsoft did not explain the reason why it has planned to end support for the desktop app. We also don’t know whether or not the LinkedIn app will ever make a return to the Microsoft Store. But for now, the best alternative you have on Windows 10 is the LinkedIn website.

Thanks Errol for the tip!
