Big App developers like Google, Disney, Amazon and others have been developing UWP Apps for Xbox but not for Windows 10 for a long time. While those apps are not necessarily optimized for Tablet or Mouse navigation they still offer some benefits over their Web App counterparts.

4. Visit https://store.rg-adguard.net/ and paste the URL from above, select Retail from the drop down menu to the right of the URL paste box, then click the green check box.
5. You will be presented with a list, like the image below.
6. Click on the msixbundle link for this App. For other Apps you might select msix or appx.
