Because, by default, Windows 10/11 updates apps installed from Store automatically in the background, users do not need to update apps manually.
Because apps are updated automatically without user intervention, users do not know which apps have been updated recently.
Sometimes, you might want to know if an app was recently updated. For example, if an app is not working well, you might want to check if it was recently updated.
Windows 10 and 11 offer two ways to view recently updated apps. We can use the Microsoft Store and the Settings app to know the recently updated apps.
Method 1 of 2
View recently updated apps in Windows 10/11 using Settings
In addition to the Store app, the Settings app can help you view recently updated apps. The advantage of this method over using Store is that the Settings app lists all apps, including apps installed from the internet. For example, you can find Google Chrome and Firefox browsers here. So you can easily know when the Chrome browser was updated.
Step 1: Open the Settings app using the search or Windows logo + I hotkey.
Step 2: On Windows 10, go to Apps > Apps & features page. On Windows 11, navigate to Apps > Installed apps page.
Step 3: On that page, select Install date/Date installed from the drop-down next to Sort by to view all recently updated apps. Note that when you sort apps by their installed date, Windows 10/11 sorts apps by their updated dates.
Method 2 of 2
View recently updated apps via Microsoft Store in Windows 10/11
NOTE: This method shows only apps installed/updated from the Microsoft Store. Apps installed from outside Store cannot be found here.
Step 1: Launch the Microsoft Store app.
Step 2: In the left pane, click the Library icon (refer to the picture below).
Step 3: The Library page shows the Updates and Downloads section. Below that, make sure that Apps is selected and then select Sort by date to view all recently updated apps.
As you can see in the picture, the Store app sorts the app list by modified/updated date.
