Install Microsoft To-Do without accessing the Windows Store

Occasional Visitor

Can I install Microsoft To-DO without accessing the Windows Store? Currently the Windows Store is banned in my work laptop due to cooperate security policy. I had to end up using the web version, which is pretty bad at notifying. I was just wondering if I could install the windows native version without accessing the Store.

Your organisation could deploy it to you using InTune https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/apps-add

@Xueli Tian I am in the same boat. I want to install Microsoft To-Do but the store has been disabled enterprise wide.

@Will Findlay You can go to store.rg-adguard.net and drop the to-do store link in there to extract the appx. :)

that's a url, so it should behave as one.

I want to install Microsoft To DO, in my company is not permitted the micrososft store use, thanks for you support.

Same Problem here... I was using Wunderlist so far, but the Appstore is blocked at our company.

 

Bad decission to make these kind of tools accessible only via appstore. Altough I have admin permissions and have a (private) O365 Account I have to move away from Microsoft products... 

@Philemon Burney 

Appreciate that, but I just want an exe or an msi. I don't want to pay for InTune licenses. :)

Look at me, I'm on another Microsoft forum post trying to do something pretty normal and I have to jump through hoops to do it. 

Surprise surprise. As always, thanks again to those who offer their time in providing us with reasonable solutions.

@Will Findlay 

Thanks. Worked fine, here.

@Will Findlay Hello I visited store.rg-adguard.net with the to-do store link and it returned a list of appx, each in different versions and for different CPUs, was it the same for you ?

@Xueli Tian I was able to install To Do via Sideloading, as per the How to Geek instructions.  I wasn't sure what the Store web link was, but just doing a Google search for To Do and copying the link there gave it to me (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/microsoft-to-do-lists-tasks-reminders/9nblggh5r558).

Once I plugged that link in at https://store.rg-adguard.net/, it gave me a long list of apps to install.  I chose the one called "Microsoft.Todos_2.42.41091.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe.appxbundle".  Double-clicked it and clicked Install.  It then installed a few prerequisites and then To Do.

 

Works great!

All these people up here trying to bypass security controls, REACH OUT TO YOUR IT TEAM!! If they are blocking the store (which they should) then they can push apps from it with Intune. You dont need to by a license as the employee.

Also, thanks for the tip about adgaurd.net, blocked that domain :-).
