    How do I put files into the WindowsApps file?


    Story: I accidentally removed a file from WindowsApps that was an important part to my game, but now i can't run the game, and i can't put the file back into the folder, i tried to uninstall the game, and re-install the game, but the files weren't there still, and i can't even open the game.

    Does anyone know how to fix the game, or how to add files into the windows apps folder?
    Please Help, Thank You!

    Hi and welcome to EF,
    Windows apps folder? Are you talking about metro apps? Please specify, if so rebooting pc then reinstalling would put the files back again for sure.
