I use a local account on my stationary computer, because I want to, but for some reason the Windows Store is almost empty. I've seen that people have a similar problem and it's connected with some microsoft account bug, which puts the account in a weird state where the Microsoft Store shows up almost empty, like I said. Anyway, is there a way to view the store from the web? Some applications have download links where they open a detailed view of the app and then if you want to get that app, it will open the Windows Store app (like Skype: http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-US/app/skype/5e19cc61-8994-4797-bdc7-c21263f6282b ). That page has no other controls and that leads me to think that Microsoft wants everybody to use the build-in Microsoft Store of Windows 8 and not browse the apps on the web. Maybe I've just simply passed by the Microsoft Store online?
