In Windows 8.1, the apps shown to me seem to be what the store thinks I should have, i.e.: "trending" & "editor's picks".

Is there a way to list the apps grouped by category? Or show a list of all categories?

I could've sworn there was an option to list all apps by categories on the main page in Windows 8, wondering how I can achieve that in Windows 8.1

You sure you are not recalling the store layout in Windows 8.0? There were signifcant changes to the Windows Store layout. Have you tried searching for an application, then selecting a result, and using clicking on a category that application was filed under? There might be a better way but need access to my VM in order to determine that ( if I do I will post an answer ). – Ramhound Oct 22 '13 at 17:11
@Ramhound I can search & then follow the category, but that's a. too cumbersome & b. I don't necessarily know under which category a particular app is on. I realize I might be recalling Windows 8 layout, I kinda prefer that and would like to see that style. Updated question to make it more clear – Sathya Oct 22 '13 at 17:14
Bingo. Perhaps you can figure out how to access… from… before I do. – Ramhound Oct 22 '13 at 17:17
Your question was clear. Point blank they got rid of the Windows 8.0 layout and by default it will be what you posted although you can still shop by categories ( per the image ) i posted. I just don't have access to a Win8 machine to post an actual answer :-( – Ramhound Oct 22 '13 at 17:19
@Ramhound found a way – Sathya Oct 22 '13 at 17:19

Ok thanks to some random button & mouse click mashing, I found that right clicking on the Windows store page brings down a menu where you can select the category & sort preferences
