Microsoft's Surface Diagnostic Toolkit now on the Windows Store

Microsoft has released its Surface repair tool, the Surface Diagnostic Toolkit, on the Windows Store. This makes it available for the recently released Surface Laptop, which ships with Windows 10 S on board, which can only use apps from the Windows Store by default (via WalkingCat / MSPU).

The toolkit acts as a way to quickly diagnose and correct potential issues with Surface devices on your own. From the app's description:

Part educator, part detective, and part doctor, the Surface Diagnostic Toolkit guides you through a set of software repairs and hardware diagnostics to quickly and efficiently uncover and resolve issues you are experiencing on your device. Use this app to check your battery health, lookup information about your device, repair common software issues, and validate your Surface hardware. The Surface Diagnostic Toolkit is the best place to start troubleshooting, and will guide you to the best support avenue for the quickest resolution, so you can get back to turning ideas into actions and accomplishing more with your Surface.

Prior to this, the Surface Diagnostic Toolkit was only available to download and install as an executable from Microsoft's Surface support site, where it is still available for devices other than the Surface Laptop. In fact, Microsoft's documentation specifically designates the Windows Store version for Windows 10 S.

If you happen to have a Surface Laptop and want to check the app out, you can grab it from the Windows Store now.
