    I followed your link, which took me to https://apps.microsoft.com/store/det...XP89DCGQ3K6VLD. I then clicked on "Get in store app", but nothing happened. Is there a setting somewhere that would prevent me from downloading it?

    Hello mate,

    When you click/tap on the Get in Store app button, you should then see a Open Microsoft Store pop-up to click on to start downloading it from the Microsoft Store app on your computer.

    The pop=up may be getting blocked, or hidden behind something.

    You can also manually lookup the PowerToys app in the Microsoft Store app on your computer to directly download it from there.

    Thanks for the advice. Hmm, when I tried to install from the store directly, it said "Couldn't install this app." I wonder if it's because I use Matthew Wai's "vbs control update" script.

    It could be if it disabled Windows Update.

    Sorry for the delay in responding. I enabled Windows Update, but then I had different problems. My Classic Start Menu disappeared & so did many of my startup group. Since I'm pretty happy with the way my current setup was, I decided it was more trouble than it was worth. Fortunately, logging off & back on gave me my old settings back.

    Thanks again.

    That's ok. It's always best to use what you like.
