    Multiple users sharing same Windows 10 App

    If I want multiple users to share the same Windows Store app, in this case Kodi media player, it looks like I have to go into the store and install it for each user. Does that mean that the app actually gets downloaded and repeated in each user's folder? So now if I want 4 users to use a 400MB app, it is going to cost me 1.6GB total instead of a few KB to create just a shortcut?

    If that's the case, I'm just going back to installing Kodi the old way.

    You can share store log-on (so you only have to pay once) but has to be downloaded and installed for each user.
