    Windows Store Shortcuts


    Hi,

    I was installed some apps from Windows Store (TuneIn, Adobe Photoshop Express, etc...), and... I cant find they shortcuts ...

    C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    or...

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    Let me explane...

    I wonder... is it posible to delete shortcut from Apps view screen but to remain in on Start view screen?

    If someone can help... I would appreciate it!

    Best regards

    Hello Ed,

    Apps installed from the Store have tiles on your Apps screen as shortcuts for them. If you remove their tile from the location above, it will remove them from both your Apps and Start screen.

    No... I didnt remove anything. I just install it, last night, and when I install it... they are just in All Apps view, I have to pin it to Start screen.

    In the 'All Apps' Screen, right click on the desired tile and choose 'Pin to Start'.
