    Request Advice for finding a installed application on my Win 10 PC.


    Hello Everyone, I use an application called (Colornote) on my Windows 10 PC. While I can't seem to find it on my computer, when I go to the Microsoft Store and go to the Colornote page it says the application is already installed on my PC. I then can open the application up through the MS Store page. My question is how can I create a shortcut for that application or find the application thumbnail so that I can launch the application without having to sign into the MS Store every time that I need to use it? Thank You in advance. PS: here is a link to the above named application >>>>https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/stor...s/9nblggh10xvm

    The only pointer I found after installing it is in C:\Users\berton\AppData\Local\Packages. Typing ColorNote in Cortana/Search brings up a name that can open it. It appears to be only an app instead of an actual installed program.

    Type shell:appsfolder in File Explorer address bar and press Enter to open Applications folder, right click your app to pin it to Start, Taskbar or create a shortcut for it.

    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.
