    Hi Steven -

    What error (if any) do you get when trying to delete the entry?

    Make a full image restorable backup of your system and try this...

    6 Tools To Take Ownership and Get Full Control Of Files and Folders • Raymond.CC

    Otherwise, try this...

    1. Right click on the folder that you want to take ownership and select Properties.

    2. Click the Security tab, under Group or user names menu, select your user name and click on Edit.

    3. Click on Full control check box under Permissions for authenticated users and click on Apply and OK.

    4. Select Advanced under Security tab and click on Change. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    5.
    Type the name of the person that you want to give ownership to, and then click Check Names.

    Note: The account name for the person that you are assigning ownership to is displayed.

    6.
    Click OK.

    7. If you want this person to be the owner of the files and subfolders that are contained in this folder, select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box and click OK.

    Please post back.

    Thanks.

    Maybe you misunderstood, you posted on how I can get control of a folder. I have control of that folder already and know all about store apps saved locations... My question was, In task manager then startup theirs a entry of a store app “Spotify” and it can’t be removed via the options from page 1. Taking control of a folder has nothing to do with this and even at that the startup entry is not located in their. I checked.

    I uninstall windows store apps and look for leftovers in the windows apps folder, just wanted to know where the startup entry is located so it can be removed. I have it disabled at startup but want the entry removed from task manager

    Thanks for your help! Store apps have a mind of their own.

    Theirs no error it’s just not shown or seen in any of them. The entry is located somewhere else in the registry or “different” folder.

    I suggest this tutorial is modified to mention Autoruns which is more comprehensive and easier to use than the other options

    Hi @Brink

    How to remove UWP startup entries? (I want to remove "Windows Terminal" entry, SS below, I have disabled it by changing its "json" file).
    Add, Delete, Enable, or Disable Startup Items in Windows 10-ss.png

    I used "Autoruns" app but there is no entry for UWP apps and I checked Registry key entries that you mentioned above, but as I noticed there is no Registry key entry for UWPs and the UWP startup entries are coming from the manifest file included at the time of compilation.

    Is there a way to remove those entry?

    Hello,

    I'm not seeing a way to remove UWP apps from startup either without uninstalling the app. Just to disable them at startup.

    It seems like the startup app "Cortana" isn't listed in the registry in this way.
    It's weirder that Cortana is listed in the task manager as startup when it isn't listed on a second machine with the same build.

    Can't open file location for it either.
