  1. Create shortcut


    Dell Inspiron 15 3505 laptop with WIndows 10 Build 19042.685

    Today I have added Foobar2000, via Microsoft Store, to the laptop.


    I am having difficulty finding how to create a shortcut on for Foobar2000. I cannot find the exe either; I would use this to create a shortcut if found. Similar software e.g. DBPowerAmp has its exe in:-

    C:\Program Files\dBpoweramp\dBConfig.exe

    But neither Program Files nor Program Filesx86 contain foobar2000.exe; I also loaded another app earlier today and hit the same problem.

    Has Microsoft changed locations of exe files?

    Any advice appreciated

    :)
