Surface Laptop repair tool now available from the Windows Store


Microsoft’s official Surface repair tool, the Surface Diagnostic Toolkit, is now available from the Windows Store. The app was previously available as a Win32 app for old Surface devices, but now that Microsoft’s new Surface Laptop can’t install Win32 apps from outside the Windows Store, it’s releasing the app on the Windows Store, too. Surface Laptop owners with Windows 10 S can now download and use the Surface Diagnostic Toolkit to find essential information about their device, their device’s battery, and also fix some of the most common issues.

Part educator, part detective, and part doctor, the Surface Diagnostic Toolkit guides you through a set of software repairs and hardware diagnostics to quickly and efficiently uncover and resolve issues you are experiencing on your device. Use this app to check your battery health, lookup information about your device, repair common software issues, and validate your Surface hardware. The Surface Diagnostic Toolkit is the best place to start troubleshooting, and will guide you to the best support avenue for the quickest resolution, so you can get back to turning ideas into actions and accomplishing more with your Surface.

Microsoft still recommends users on Windows 10 Pro and other versions of Windows 10 to use the classic Surface Diagnostic Toolkit, which they can download here. But if you own a Surface Laptop and still running Windows 10 S, you can get the new app from the Windows Store below.
