Windows 10 users now have another reason to give a try to the Microsoft Store, as Corel Corporation launched a dedicated version of its CorelDRAW software just for Microsoft’s desktop operating system.

 

Windows 10 users now have another reason to give a try to the Microsoft Store, as Corel Corporation launched a dedicated version of its CorelDRAW software just for Microsoft’s desktop operating system.

 

Called CorelDRAW Microsoft Store Edition, the application comes with a subscription-based model, so users need to pay for a full license to enjoy all the built-in features.

However, Windows 10 users get one week of full access completely free, and Corel says they can cancel at any time before the trial is over with no cost included.

As for what CorelDRAW is all about, the graphic design software solution is considered by many the only powerful alternative to Adobe’s Photoshop, as it comes with a rich collection of features specifically aimed at professional artists.Subscription-based modelWhile the full feature lineup is available in the Microsoft Store, what you need to know about the Windows 10 version of CorelDRAW is that it’s offered as a service, more or less similar to Office 365. This means that if you purchase a subscription, the application is always up to date and you get the latest in terms of features and improvements.

Corel offers two different subscription options, namely monthly and yearly, and all purchases are made through your Microsoft account.

“Subscriptions are charged to your credit card through your Microsoft account. Subscription plans are automatically renewed unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Manage your subscriptions in your Account Settings after purchase,” the description of the app published in the Microsoft Store reads.

CorelDRAW Microsoft Store Edition requires Windows 10 April 2018 Update or newer, so you must be running either version 1803 or 1809 (October 2018 Update). Despite still being supported by Microsoft for Home and Pro SKUs, Windows 10 Fall Creators Update cannot install Corel’s new release.
