Microsoft recently released Windows 10 to the public. Alongside major features such as Cortana and Microsoft Edge, the operating system comes with some new stock apps that are available from the Windows Store. For those who don’t know, apps such as Calculator and even Alarms & Clock is available from the Windows Store.

Now, Microsoft wants to bring more stock apps to the Windows Store. In an interview with CNN Money, Microsoft’s Terry Myerson – the company’s Executive Vice President of the Windows and Devices Group stated that the company is hoping to bring Notepad to the Windows Store. Here’s Terry’s statement:

“Even applications like Notepad — I hope that’s in the store soon. So we’ll start getting ratings and reviews on Notepad. It’s always humbling.”

As Terry stated, Microsoft wants ratings and reviews on Notepad by bringing it to the Windows Store. And the main reason of bringing the app to the Store, is, of course, quicker updates.

For now, there’s no word on when it’s coming. It’s also worth noting that it isn’t yet clear if the company will release a new Notepad pad or if it’ll be the current (classic) Notepad app. However, until then, discuss what other Windows apps you want to see on the Windows Store in the comments section below.
