Microsoft has made it easier to activate Windows 10

Visiting the Windows Store for apps at the moment does a have a random list of new apps and some of the old ones for Windows 8 when the store debuted, but finding those new apps which have been optimised for Windows 10 on the desktop and Windows 10 Mobile can be a little bit difficult.
