Windows – Application location downloaded from store in Windows 10

gamingwindows 10

I have downloaded a couple of games from the Windows store, but I can't find their folder location anywhere on my computer. Both of them show up at the start menu and I can use them too, but neither me or my game booster can pinpoint them on the computer hard disk.

I can find no such folder with the name "Windows Applications" or "Applications", does this have anything to do with my deactivated OS version?

I have checked out both of the Program Files and Program Files(x86) folders with no luck.

Best Answer

In Windows 10 you can find the location of your apps here:

C:\Program Files\WindowsApps

This is a hidden folder, so from your explorer window go to View and tick the Hidden items option.

Access the folder

You will not be able at first to access the folder. Do the following:

  • Right click on the folder and go to Properties.
  • Go to the Security tab and click Advanced.
  • At the top of the window at Owner click change and set your user (be sure to have admin rights on that user).

Now it will prompt you one more time when trying to access your folder, but after you click Continue it will let you in.
