    I found a app I want to install in a story in WPC that has a QR code. I can not find any way to install the app.
    So how do I use the QR code to install the app?

    If I am not mistaken you can click the app link in the article.

    But if you are on a WP device and the code is on another screen, just use the Search button to open that search thingy in WP, then click the Eye icon on the bottom there and you can scan that code like that if it's on another screen.

    The QR code is for people reading for example windowscentral on a desktop and want the app on their phone. Or on a tablet.

    With Cortana, the tap search opens Cortana and there is no "eye thingy" at the bottom.

    Lumia Camera (or LC Classic - depending on which you have) > three dots (options) > Lenses > Bing Vision
    Get RedLaser and simply use that for QR codes and a whole lot more. RedLaser | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Either method will take you to the App entry at the Store after the QR code is read.

    If you've got Cortana already, the way to scan QR codes is slightly different though, as Cortana replaces your the usual Bing search that used to come up when pressing the magnifying glass button on your WP device:

    Launch your camera, pull up the bottom app bar drawer and choose "photo apps". Now select Bing Vision.
