    Cannot access the WindowsApps folder


    Hi, I am trying to open the WindowsApps (win 10, 2004) folder but am denied. I go through the various windows (security tab, etc.) but no dice.
    Can someone help?
    Thanks

    This is a protected hidden folder so you don't do damage.

    I hope you are following the so often repeated advice here to use disk imaging routinely. E.g. Macrium Reflect (free - paid) + external storage for disk imaging.

    That way you can protect yourself against ransomware, disk failure, theft and even your own mistakes.

    See e.g.
    How to Get Access to WindowsApps Folder in Windows 10

    There are plenty of guides as to how to do this.

    Simply use e.g. Google
    windowsapps folder
