    No. Previously (8.1), to make a Universal App, you had to release separate packages to the separate stores. These packages would have the same name and id. Now, you release a single package to a single store, but it contains multiple builds for various form factors (desktop, phone,Xbox, hololens, and IoT). While the process is easier, you still have to enable spot for each form factor. So until your favorite apps get released as w10 universals with desktop support, no.
