    How to access Windows Apps folder


    Hi,

    I tried to access the Windows Apps folder, which is in the programs folder, and I was denied access, and got this message: "You have been denied access to this folder. To gain access to this folder, you will need to use the security tab." What does this mean and how do I do this? Thanks.

    The Windows Apps folder is a restricted System Folder. You need Administrator privileged and approval to access it. All the Store apps are in there. It is not advisable to try and delete any files in that folder. All "user" programs and apps are stored elsewhere, not in there.

    Which brings the question.... what do you need or want to do in there?
