    Store Apps


    Is there any way to save downloaded Apps from the store? The only option I see is install.

    Downloaded Apps are located in the C:\Program Files\WindowsApps folder.

    You will need to take ownership to view the contents using..

    Code:
    takeown /F "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps" /A /R
    ..from an elevated command prompt.
