Have a list of people you need to get tech gifts for? Or maybe you want a tech device yourself but not sure about the specs? If the item can be found in a Microsoft Store, then I suggest making a free virtual appointment!

Didn't know you can make a Microsoft Store virtual appointment?

Neither did I until the Microsoft Store team suggested it when I needed help with a few things, including understanding Windows 11 and comparison shopping for a new laptop!


Using Microsoft Store’s Appointments for Personal Shopping and Training



Making an appointment was easy. I just pick the topic I needed help with, day and time I'm available and done! Next I received an email with all the details including the Microsoft Teams video link.

After logging into my Microsoft Store virtual appointment, I meet with a real person to discuss my topic. My first appt was for training to understand Windows 11.

The expert walked me through features of the program, answered any questions I had about using certain apps and even demoed how to do certain tasks. I now can use Windows 11 more fully.


I was so impressed with the service that I wanted to use it again when I was interested in a Surface device, but wasn't sure which one I needed.

Instead of going into a Microsoft Store location, I was able to schedule an online personal shopping appt to discuss Surface devices features, specs and even compare models. Again the live expert walked me through everything and answered my questions.

I was able to decided which Surface device was best for me and simplify my shopping decision. They even offered a few tips about holiday shopping to get the best deals. Now when I shop either online or in the store, I know what to get!

Both my Microsoft Store virtual appointments really helped me and was so useful. Everyone needs to use this service!
