Adobe Lightroom is now available through the Microsoft Store (via Thurrott.com). Lightroom is the first core Adobe app to become available through the Microsoft Store. You can now download Lightroom onto your Windows 10 device without having to use the Creative Cloud app.
To use Lightroom, you need to have a paid subscription that includes Adobe Lightroom, such as Adobe's Photography plan. You can try the app for free for up to seven days through the Microsoft Store before having to commit to a subscription.
Adobe has some other software on the Microsoft Store, such as Adobe Photoshop Elements 2020, but Lightroom is the first core adobe app to become available through the Microsoft Store.
Note: This is the x64-bit version, and, as such, cannot run on ARM devices like the Surface Pro X. While Adobe is committed to ARM-ports of its software this is not that.
As Thurrott.com points out, you can download the Microsoft Store version and the Creative Cloud app version of Lightroom on the same device, but can only use one at a time since Adobe restricts plans to one instance at a time. The functionality of the two versions appears to be identical.
Adobe Lightroom is one of Adobe's core editing apps. It allows you to make professional-grade edits to images. The app itself is free but requires a paid subscription.
