Install apps on Windows Phone using Windows PC

I am not sure how many of you know this, but you can install Windows Phone Store apps on your Windows Phone, using your Windows PC, and the procedure to do it is quite simple.

Let us say you are working on your Windows PC and you do not have your Windows Phone with you at that moment. Maybe you left it in some other place or maybe its just in some other room.

While browsing the Windows Phone Store in your Windows PC desktop web browser, you come across an interesting app or game, which you want to install on your phone.

Use Windows PC to install apps on Windows Phone

Then instead of getting the phone to install it, you can simply do the following:

Click on the Install button you see in the bottom left side. You will be asked to login with your Microsoft Account.

Once you have done that you will be taken to the following page in your web browser which states that the app will be sent your Windows Phone which is using the Microsoft Account.

Clicking on Get app will start the process. Windows Phone Store will contact you phone.

Once the contact is made successfully, you will see the following message and it will initiate the download and installation.

If you check your phone after a few minutes, you will see the app or game installed.
