    How to install apps which is not only in Windows app store? that is how to install apps which are not inline with the Windows security in Windows 8 OS? Is that possible?

    I want to know if we can install the apps which are not from the Windows app store in Windows 8 OS? How to install the third party apps? as it shows the error message saying only trusted apps are allowed to be installed?

    Yes as Windows 8 is like the other mobile OS allows only the trusted apps to be installed but still you can install the third party apps too, just follow the few simple steps given below to do it,

    STEP 1: Just in the normal windows screen press Windows key + R to open the run command window.

    STEP 2: Type gpedit.msc and go to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > App Package Deployment, double-click "Allow all trusted apps to install" and select Enabled > OK.

    STEP 3: Close the window and install the apps which you want to and check if you are able to install now.

    Dear,

    You can install applications in Windows 8 that are not available in Windows store. You can download them from their official websites and install as usual.
    The only requirement is to have the signed application and system with same signing certificate installed. You also need to enable ‘allow all trusted applications to install’ in the group policy editor. You can enable it by going to registry editor by typing ‘regedit’ in a run command box.
    Set the value of the following key
    to 1:
    ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Policies > Microsoft > Windows > Appx > AllowAllTrustedApps’ .

    Thanks!
