    iTunes.exe - where is it found?

    I installed iTunes on my PC in order to backup my iPhone apps and data. The installation was made from the Microsoft Store.

    However, I cannot find where itunes.exe is located on my PC. The Windows Start menu does have an entry for iTunes, which I used for my backup, but does not provide any clue about where the actual executable is located. I need this information in order to create an entry in a toolbar that I use for PC management purposes.

    Any ideas where itunes.exe is hiding?

    EDIT: I found a couple of links C:\Users\fortitude\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps\itunes.exe and c:\Users\fortitude\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps\AppleInc.iTunes_nzyj5cx40ttqa\iTunes.exe. These however are not the actual exe file, but references to it. Anyway, I'm looking for the iTunes thumbnail, if possible which my toolbar would detect in itunes.exe, if I could find it.

    EDIT 2: OK, I answered my own question. It may help others. I found itunes.exe in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\AppleInc.iTunes_12095.7.41059.0_x64__nzyj5cx40ttqa\itunes.exe.

    On my PC, it resides in splendid obviousness in C:\Program Files\iTunes.

    Yep my iTunes.exe is in same place as Ed’s. I wouldn’t ever recommend a store app equivalent over a traditional installation. You might be better off downloading the installer from Apple. Although that being said I think Apple are going to tear iTunes up in a few months and replace with separate apps for tv, music, podcasts and books

    Thanks for the comments. May be I didn't see it, but on the Apple website I could only download it from Microsoft Store, which wouldn't be my best alternative if I had one. Hence the problem locating itunes.exe.
