    This is great and all, however it seems that when you launch a Win10 App this way that it create additional 'Windows Explorer' processes that doesn't seem to terminate after you've closed the Win10 Apps. Any way to get around this?
    It shouldn't using the command below.

    Ah okay, thanks.
    It says it works with shortcuts also, how does one do this? Do you have to first create a script with the command and then create a shortcut of the script which allows you to change the icon also?

    You can create a shortcut using the command as the target location.

    I think I'll just use it from a script and create a shortcut from that, much less complicated that way.

    I'll post an example for it to help if you like.
