Can you open multiple instances of Windows Store apps in Windows 10?


  1. You can always use the virtual desktop to open more instances.

    Windows Key + Ctrl + D – Create a new virtual desktop and switch to it
    Windows Key + Ctrl + F4 – Close the current virtual desktop.
    Windows Key + Ctrl + Left / Right – Switch to the virtual desktop on the left or right.

  2. This was the post that came up for my googling on this issue. I have the latest Win10 Pro 64-bit with all updates on my new laptop. I added the calc.exe to my taskbar since I use it all the time. A normal left-click on it still can only bring up one instance. However, the right-click method, which I hadn’t used, does work. So, I just have to remember that in the future.

    It really would be nice if MSFT fixed that.
