    Recently I had to reinstall Windows 10 on my laptop.
    Earlier I had downloaded and installed many apps from Windows Store.
    I have a copy of C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Local\Packages with me.

    Is it possible to get back the apps by copying the entire folder to my machine?
    Is there any option to get back the apps?
    Or should I download and install them once again?

    I would recommend just downloading them again from the store :)

    To get a quick glimpse of which apps you had, open the store > click on account picture (left side of search bar in the store app) > select my library.

    Gives you a quick look at everything and you can download the apps from there. If you already paid for an app, you'll still be able to download it
