    Stating "...that did not work..." does not help you much.

    Try including screenshots to show what actually occurred, and perhaps we can see what's going on.

    However, once you do have it running, there should be an icon on the taskbar - right-click this, and select Pin to Taskbar, and it should be available as a quick launch item.

    Hello Fafhrd, Here are 3 screen shots. The 1st one is showing that the app is not installed. The 2nd one is showing the app is installed and ready to launch from the MS Store, but I can't run the app from my desktop or launch it from my PC. The 3rd one is showing the app launched from the MS Store

    I cannot see the Colornote icon on your taskbar. Leaving Colornote running, can you close down the Store window, leaving Colornote open?

    Can you then find a taskbar icon for ColorNote, right-click and pin it to the taskbar? If you can, you should have a means to access it anytime.

    Being a store app it doesn't have an executable file and in your case it apparently has not installed correctly.

    On my system, after a struggle to gain access to it, the files associated to the app can be found in:

    C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\DBA41F73.ColorNoteNotepadNotes_1.1.0.20_neutral__3jn8vbmxrzmj2

    but it works as a collection of HTML, XML, JS, and some other resources in that folder, so there is no actual executable file to pin to the start menu.

    Can you find ColorNote in Settings, Apps and features? Can you uninstall it and reboot, then try again to get it installed correctly?

    Kari, I tried what you suggested and I still could not find it its not listed. But when I ran ccleaner it was listed in that app , but I still cant find it on my PC. Thank You
    I don't get this. I tested now installing ColorNote from Store. I will not use it, uninstalled already (I don't give my Google credentials to an unknown app maker), but the app when installed was immediately found in in Start, it was shown in Taskbar when open, and it could be found in Applications folder exactly as I told in post #3.
