How To: Add Windows 10 Store Apps
Posted by Panagiotis Mantzouranis on 20 February 2019 12:45 PM

The easiest way to add a Windows 10 Store App in Gizmo is to create a shortcut of the app somewhere on the pc, and then add the shortcut to Gizmo


Method 1

To create a shortcut of any Windows 10 Store App, do the following: 

  1. Open windows Start menu
  2. Locate the application
  3. Drag the application icon on the desktop


Add the newly created desktop shortcut (.lnk file) in the executable path of Gizmo. Make Sure you check the "shell execute" box.



Method 2 

If you don't want to use shortcuts, there is another way

1. After creating the application shortcut on the desktop, right click - properties

Note the Target type. For Microsoft store app it is: Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App

2. Now in Gizmo enter the following:

Exectuable Path: %windir%\Explorer.exe

Arguments: shell:AppsFolder\"TARGET TYPE"

Working Directory: %windir%
