Microsoft’s dedicated PC Manager app has been on the Microsoft Store for a while, but for many, it is still not available. Even when you go to the Microsoft Store, the Get (download) button is missing. This prompted us to launch an investigation!

So, after a few hours of talking to affected users and going through the official and non-official documents, it appears that Microsoft PC Manager is still not released globally. It’s being gradually rolled out to different regions.

If you are in Europe, say Germany, Portugal, the UK, or other unsupported countries, PC Manager is not yet available for download, even from the official website. Many expressed shock at this. One user wrote on Reddit,

It’s a shame that the app is not available for/from Germany.
However, it can be selected in the Intune app distribution.
I hope this will be changed.
Hello Mr. Mircosoft, please make the app available for the European market. Thank you very much!

Though you shouldn’t fret about it, we have a workaround that will help!

Also, you could select China, India, Hong Kong, Macau, or Taiwan, from the list of countries. Microsoft PC Manager is also available in all these regions!

Before you get it, read our review of Microsoft PC Manager because in its present form, the app does not offer many exclusive features. It just integrates what’s already available into a single interface, simply improving accessibility and not adding any value.

Only time will tell whether Microsoft PC Manager will be able to compete with CCleaner, a tool that already enjoys massive popularity and user base!
