Recently, Microsoft announced the release of its Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15041 for PC and mobile platforms. This update allows Windows Insiders (beta testers) to purchase eBooks directly from the Windows store and read them in Microsoft Edge. A feature which will be available globally in the upcoming Windows 10 Creators update, scheduled to arrive in Spring 2017.
This is a huge opportunity for HelpNDoc users who can already easily produce ePub eBooks that are compatible with the new Windows 10 update!

How Is The New Windows 10 Update Relevant?

With the recent update, Windows 10 users can now buy any e-book directly from the Windows store and read them without using third party devices such as e-readers, tablets, iPad, or any other eBook-friendly device. Also, product end-users can access documentations, help files, help manuals etc. that are published as eBooks from their Windows computer, phone or tablet without using an extra device.

eBooks in the Windows Store and Edge browser

Microsoft described exactly how the process will work for end users: “After purchasing your eBooks – you will find those in your Books library, which is a new hub entry in Microsoft Edge right next to your favorites, history, downloads and reading list.”

One of the reasons why some Windows 10 users don’t buy ePub eBooks is the hassle of moving around with an extra reading device. With the new update, you can access your eBooks on PC or mobile devices running Windows 10. So how exactly can technical writers and other writers create ePub eBooks that are compatible with the new update?
