Windows 10: Can you use the event log to see what is opening a UWP app?

    Can you use the event log to see what is opening a UWP app?


    The Store and Weather apps are both randomly opening up on my Surface Pro 3.

    Is there a way I can check the event log (or something similar) to see why this is happening and what is causing it?

    Hi, Sysinternals Procmon should give you a clue. (free, just search for it, download, run).
    In the following I started 3D Builder
    Click image for larger version.

    I stopped the capture (File, Capture Events), then searched for Builder (Edit, Find).
    The first occurrence is highlighted - Builder is in the very long right-most string.
    You can see more following.
