When Microsoft unveiled the new Microsoft Store on Windows 11, it let everyone know that the new store would also come to Windows 10. Today, Microsoft started to push the new Microsoft Store to Windows 10 devices of the Insider Release Preview ring.,While that limits the official distribution to Insider devices at the moment, it is an indicator that the Store will become available soon on stable versions of Windows 10.
Even better, Windows 10 users who don't want to wait, can download the new Store application right now and upgrade the existing Store on any supported version of Windows 10, including the Stable version. A tweet by Rudy Huyn, Principal Architect of the Microsoft Store, confirmed the roll out of the new Microsoft Store.

Now that both packages are downloaded, it is time to upgrade the Store.
- Load Microsoft Store - Generation Project (v1.2.3) [by @rgadguard & mkuba50] in your web browser of choice. I had issues downloading packages with several browsers, but Firefox worked without a hitch.
- Switch to ProductID in the first field of the form on the page.
- Paste 9wzdncrfjbmp into the second field, the text field.
- Make sure that RP is selected in the third field.
- Activate the checkmark at the end and wait for the results on the same page.
- Locate Microsoft.WindowsStore_22110.1401.10.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe.msixbundle on the page and download it. It was at the bottom of the page whenever I ran the search.
- Download Microsoft.UI.Xaml.2.7_7.2109.13004.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe.appx as well, as you may need it.
The new Store is installed and you can test it by opening it right away.
