This isn’t necessarily a problem but a question.

Folks at work are getting sent heic pictures. I can get Windows 10 to see the files using the extension you can get for free from the Microsoft store.

The issue is Microsoft Store is blocked at work. before it was blocked, folks downloaded installed other apps from the store; can’t do that anymore.

If I install Windows, I can download the extension and install for free, but even if I remove the PC from the domain and try wireless doesn’t work. Seems the PC can’t have any trace of the domain in it.

Is there any other way to install the free extension besides going through Microsoft store?

I know there are some appx files out there, but not sure if there’s a appx for extension for heic.

This is work, so I can’t install free programs regarding heic. Such as copytrans. However, it would seems there's another way to install this Microsoft extension w/o going through the store.
