  • Hi Kristina.

    Open the Windows 10 Settings app, and click Update & Security; click For developers on the left and then select the Sideload apps option.
    Restart your computer for the change to be applied.

    Bye.

  • Thank you all for the answers. It was this thing with "Allow apps from anywhere". My problem was I wasn't using the ADMINISTRATOR account when I was searching through the Settings. Once I signed in a s ADMIN the option was right in front of my face no.1 on the list of options.

    Regards.
