Simple Trick to Install LinkedIn W10 Desktop app on Windows 10 Phone


Microsoft owned LinkedIn recently announced its Desktop only Windows 10 app sparking much anger among the mobile phone fans as to why the app was released as PC only and NOT as a UWP app.

Folks over at WindowsBlogItalia managed to overcome the limitation and thus acquired the mobile .appx package which can be side-loaded on to your mobile device.

  2. Enable the Developer mode option.
