    Reinstall downloaded Windows Store app without downloading again

    An example is Kodi. I install it from Windows Store. Make a mess, uninstall it and want to reinstall it. Where is it on my HDD so that I can reinstall it without downloading it again. Windows Store knows I have it (it says I own it.)

    Hi. Kodi is not a pre-installed app. Using My Library means downloading again. I think I will try the Installer version - it is there for re-use, although it doesn't auto-update.
