Windows 10 installing software or app

  Noldi 12:47 30 Dec 2018

Just purchased a lap top in the sales running windows 10. It seems that you can only install Microsoft approved software. message "secure by design to keep you safe only verified apps from Microsoft can be installed on this PC.

Want to install Documents or similar a app I use on my phone.

tried changing user account settings.

only use this lap top for email and webb browsing would be nice if I could have my family tree documents without investing in MS office.

Sounds like you might have Windows 10 S. See Windows 10 S

To install software from other sources I believe you need to have at least Windows 10 Home or better.
