Find All Apps Installed on Windows 8 (Updated for 8.1)

Note that this article has been updated to show how to find all installed apps on Windows 8.1, which is a much easier process.

While the instruction for Windows 8 is still the same, since Microsoft update the OS to Windows 8.1, finding all of your apps has become much easier.

From the Modern Start screen, simply click the down arrow button, or if you’re on a touch screen, swipe from the bottom up.


There you will get your apps list. And another new feature is you can organize the apps by name, category, most used, or date installed.



If you want an easy way to find all apps installed on Windows 8 computers, hit the Windows Key + Q in from either the desktop or the new (metro) interface. This brings up the Search box and will display all of the apps. The benefit of this is you can easily start searching for a particular app too.
