How to Change Region for Microsoft Store in Windows 11

Microsoft offers its own application store in the Windows operating system, called Microsoft Store. Sometimes, the availability of certain applications or games in the Microsoft Store depends on the system region.

If you want to get your hands on some apps or apps that are exclusively available in certain regions but not found in that region, there is a workaround to help you out in such situations.

Since Microsoft Store uses system region settings to filter its content, you can change Windows 11 region settings to download apps and games that are not available in your current location. In this step-by-step process, we’ll show you how you can change the country or region in your Windows 11 operating system for the Microsoft Store.

How to Change Microsoft Store Region in Windows 11

Step 1: Open the Settings app on your computer. For this, click on the Start menu and select Settings from there or press Windows + I keys on the keyboard.

2nd step: When the Settings app opens, click on the “Time & Language” option.

Step 3: After that, in the right pane, click on the “Language & Region” tab on the left sidebar.

Step 4: Under the “Region” section, in Country or region, select the new location from the drop-down menu.

That’s it. Once you have completed all the steps mentioned above, the Microsoft Store will start displaying content based on the location you just selected. Another way to confirm if changes have taken place is to see if the currency of paid apps displays the current currency for that region. For example, if you have selected the United States as the region, the currency of paid applications will be displayed in USD.
