    Where does downloaded game from store go?

    I have downloaded Special Enquiry Detail from the Store, but I cannot find the game on my PC to start playing it.
    Where do the downloaded games go, please?
    Many thanks.

    Did you do a search for the app? Starting in Windows 8.1 all apps don't automatically get pinned to the Start Screen. I see its good rated app at the store
    Special Enquiry Detail: The Hand that Feeds app for Windows in the Windows Store

    Once you found it you can right click on it to pin it.

    It might be in the Apps view (a.k.a All Programs).

    Here a link on getting there which you sort by different ways:
    Getting around your PC - Microsoft Windows

    The other things you can do are following these suggestions:
    What happened to the apps on my PC? - Microsoft Windows Help

    I hope that helps. Check the store and see if it says installed.
