In Windows 10, there is an ability to play Store Games offline. Thanks to a special option, it can be done natively without using a third party app or a hack. Let’s see how it can be done.
Many Store games in Windows 10 require an Internet connection out of the box. This can be inconvenient if you are on a limited data plan or if your connection is not stable. To fix the issue, Microsoft has implemented a special option in the Store.
