  1. Microsoft Store downloaded movies location


    I purchased a movie from the Microsoft Store, and downloaded it onto both of my laptops. It shows up in Movies & TV as a purchased video, but I cannot tell when I play it if I am watching the download or the online version of the movie. this concerns me because on both laptops the download did not appear to have completed. Does anyone know where the movie would be stored on my hard drive? I looked in the WindowsApps folder in Program Files on both laptops, but I can't seem to find it. The downloads location in Movies & TV just specifies the drive you download to, and not a folder. How can I find my downloaded movies, and if the downloads did not complete properly, how can I re-download the movie?

    :)

  3. Movie not downloading from Microsoft Store on Windows 10

    I purchased a movie on Microsoft Store and when trying to download in Movies & TV it goes to "Pending" and just sits there no matter how long I wait. I have tried from my account using IE, Edge, Chrome, Brave, and Opera and launching Movies & TV with the
    same result. I have tried from the Movies & TV directly - no change. I have tried the various "fixes" Microsoft and other sites suggest - all a waste of time. This is the only site I have trouble downloading videos from.

    I am using Windows 10 Home ver. 1903 installed on 8/21/19, OS build 18362.295 on a Gateway NE56R laptop with a 2.1 GHz x64 CPU with 4 gigs of RAM. And yes, the laptop is in the Devices list in my Microsoft account.

    Microsoft Store downloaded movies location

    Where are Files (Movies, etc) I download from Windows 10 Store actually located on my PC?

    Thanks for your reply. No, nothing shows up when I type the name of the movie in the search box. The movie shows up in the Movies & TV app, but I cannot find the physical file on my system. No files have been saved to the location where my downloads normally
    go (I checked the location settings as you suggested).

    Welcome any other ideas -- is it possible that Windows obscures the location of downloads of Movie and TV files from Windows Store?

    Appreciate your help.
